I've never been so excited to see sanded drywall!

looking up the stairs (that's the laundry alcove, I've got big plans for that)

upstairs hallway - bathroom at the far end. That closet door opening into the hall used to be on the other side -- it's the bedroom closet. But in order the get all the built-in bunkbeds into that room, we had to close up that door and access the closet from the hallway instead. If that makes sense...

And interior doors and trim are going in. I picked out my doorknobs, aren't these cute? :) Its the little things !

  1. It looks so big! Is that the attic entrance in the ceiling, and are you able to use it for storage? And also are you getting one of those cool slide-down ladder stairs for it?

  2. I honestly don't know if I'll be able to use the attic, since the HVAC system is up there and in the summer it'll probably be a billion degrees, lol

  3. This really is chugging along! WOO!

  4. not many times do we get a new place, from the ground up. so glad you are sharing all this, because i know you have got to be mega busy and yet you take time to share some of the details. this is turning gorgeous. but i knew it would. because: you.

  5. Love it! Seeing the drywall is one of my favorite days! Always makes me think of that funny scene from The Money Pit when Tom Hanks is moved to tears saying, "It's happening. It's really happening." (or something like that.) It looks so great.

  6. It's always a thrill to see the drywall up and finished - you can feel the progress and imagine the paint going up.....and think to yourself....finally, I am getting someplace. I'm excited for you Katy. Please keep the updates coming!

About Me

My photo
For many years I was a mechanical engineer by day, a house renovator by night, and a single mom. I previously built a tiny house on Tybee Island that I sold in 2015. Then I lost my day job, met Prince Charming, and now work full time demolishing (fixing) his lake house. ;) Stop by for the house stuff, stay for the never-ending disasters, pianos falling out of the sky, floods, threats of financial ruin, & panic attacks. It's like house flipping meets the zombie apocalypse! with lots of kids!
