Attic? Nope third floor!

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2008

I think tomorrow may be the last day that Lynn’s group works on our third floor. You really cannot call it an attic anymore.

Overall I am very happy with how it turned out. The finish could be better, but the design work is excellent! (thanks Lynn!)

I am excited about this coming weekend. We will probably have the kids moved in by then. This may be the first time in my life I have been looking forward to moving furniture.

Here are some pictures of the rooms (2 bedrooms and 1 bath) before we muck it all up with our stuff :)

Photos for the new year

It has been quite a while since I posted. The Christmas season is intense. Add to it a construction project in your house and it might just be too much.

We celebrated it 3 times this year. Once with the Duggers, once at home and once with the Smiths. The kids are convinced that another Christmas is just around the corner :).

We bought a wii for the kids this year. So far I am sure I have logged the most hours. I played boxing for ~3 hours for each of the first 3 nights we had it. And yes I was sore!

The attic is also about done. In fact I really need to start calling it the third floor. We passed the final inspection today. The only thing keeping us from moving the kids upstairs is the HVAC. It isn’t producing any heat (mad). But the project in all has turned out really good. I will be posting some pictures of it in the coming days.

I finally got around to processing pictures. The last time I sat down to do this was Dec 18! So go check-em out.
