Yet Another Update...

...on the remodel project. The North and West walls in the room are done and I have the closet and window walls remaining as well as the walls of the landing outside the bedroom. After that, is mudding and taping. YUM!!! :)

It's beginning to resemble a room a bit now. I'm happy about that though really tired when I go to bed each night.

Here's an Update...

...on the remodel project. The insulation has been completed and I've started on the drywall. The ceiling of the bedroom is complete and I plan to work on the walls this week. :) Then, I'll switch over and do the greenboard and hardy backer in the bathroom. After that, it's time to add the doors.

There is still a bit of framing left to do in the landing area, but I should be able to knock that out after work tomorrow.

I still don't have the pictures rescued from the Queen's camera, but once I do, I'll add them on here for you.

So far, it looks like we're still on time to have the bedroom done by the time the Prince arrives. The bathroom is another matter altogether. Since we're now going to tile the bathroom, we've decided it's OK to complete that AFTER the Prince arrives.

Basement Project...

Here's an update for those of you who are interested. I don't have pictures yet, but you'll forgive me for that, right? :)

The framing for the bedroom and bathroom is complete. I need to add another small bit of framing for the landing at the bottom of the stairs so that there will be an edge for the carpeting.

The plumbing supply lines have been run to the bathroom space complete with a pair of Master cutoffs for that bathroom.

The electrical work is nearly complete, just need to hook up a few lights and get an electrician to wire the outlet circuit into the electrical panel and check over the wiring.

I need to do the insulation once my part of the wiring is complete.

After that, there's the doors, the drywall, mudding and taping, finish carpentry, and then painting. All this needs to be complete by the last week of April.

I'll try to get pictures posted soon.
