Our Dream House


Well hubby is not putting up anymore ceiling for the time being. On Monday night he ran the end of his left thumb straight on into the blade on his table saw. Darn lucky he did not split his whole thumb!
Took 7 stitches to close it. Did not want to see the Doctor but I dragged him in anyway. X-ray showed he did fracture the bone at the end of his thumb.

Since I am still off work convinced him to let me start putting up light fixtures upstairs. Got one up tonight. Yes the "electrical chicken" aka ME messed with something electrical. Made sure the breaker was off along with the light switch. I was sweating bullets.

Bathroom mudding is almost done! last coat was put on today.

Asked hubby to get me a door for the kids bathroom for my birthday next month!

Bathrooms are finished! Friend finished the sanding today! So they are now ready to be primed and painted.

Now since we plan to have the shower stall tiled I have seen videos where they put thin set on the hardi board then put an orange colored type of fiber material over the thin set then tiled over it.
Does anybody know what it is called?
I really want to have this shower stall as water proof as I can get it.

Then going to decide polyurethane windows or start priming the bathrooms.

Well hubby hung the chandiler up higher right after the 3rd time he walked into it!
I know I shouldn't laugh but it was funny.

All the bathrooms are primed and I got the small guest bath painted and half the master painted before I ran out of paint. Hubby has to haul my truck into town tomorrow and is going to pick up 3 more gallons of paint so I can finish the bathrooms.

The last of the light fixtures are in! the basement ceiling is done too.
Everything was going great til something in the furnance went out. Need to get the repairman out to fix it.
Friend was out and got things measured to start putting up the tile on the walls. But will have to wait til the furnance is fixed to do it so the house is warm enough so the this set cures.

Well things have been crazy around here. I won't go into too much detail, but it involves a nasty cold and the loss of 2 different chicken houses to an electrical fire.
Hubby now has my cold so he is laid up.

Been getting things done though.
