Rebuilding the Land Yacht

Trust me Jim I have thought about putting up a wall.

They have approved major infrastructure improvements where all the other families were that flooded again so that is good. I think we were just in nervous Nellie mode there for a while.

The sun came out today for the first time in like a week but things are still wet outside so we continued on inside. Below are a few shots from what we have doing

The first is where we tore out a wall and had someone put up the infamous beam. I now have a walk in closet. The left hand side is where we will be extending out and re-doing the master bath but that is waaaay in the future.

The second shows what I have been doing while locked in the house. I don't know why but when they put up the drywall in the house they ran the tape but didn't mud out the tape or feather it out so there is this massive ditch and then the tape. I have been fixing all of that so when we hang the new stuff its all level and neat. They also liked pictures. A LOT of pictures and pink walls. And if they missed the stud with the nail for said pictures..thats okay we will try another 30 times till we get it right and leave the holes there. You can also see the firring strips where we removed all the older than me ceiling tiles. I then had to go back and remove 9 million staples.

The third shot is one of these holes that keep getting cut in my drywall. If I catch the bastard that keeps doing it there will be hell to pay . If I hear "its only gong to be a small hole honey" one more time...I told him today, okay come here and let me put a small hole in your head!!

Moving along though. Only have to wire in the bathroom fan and put up the smoke alarms and then I think we can get inspected.
