April 15: decking delivery

The decking was delivered this morning.  Work has begun!

April 6: deck floor started

We started on the deck floor today.

It's ready for the decking material now!

April 4: frame

Boards are going up!

April 3: more deck

The boys are busy measuring and marking today. It's time to frame!

April 2: ready to frame

The rocks are down, and it's time to start framing out the deck.

March 5: deck time

Today it's time to start working on the deck!
The boys worked on digging post holes and pouring concrete.

February 28: tile

Most of the tile is down!

Mowgli is still acting as the worksite supervisor.

February 21: carpet

The flooring guys were here today.
The stairs and the open room upstairs are now covered in thick, soft, new carpet...
specifically chosen because it won't show dirt and kid muck.:)

February 18: ready for carpet

The floor and the stairs have been cleaned and painted with Kilz.
Time for new carpet!

February 16: upstairs flooring

We've ripped out the old carpet in the open room upstairs and down the stairs.
Time to start prepping it for new carpet!

I didn't take pictures *before* the Sahara-Desert-worth of sand was sucked into the ShopVac...
Here are the *after* pictures.;)

February 4: upstairs bedroom finished

The flooring and finishwork are done in the new bedroom upstairs...
The new bedroom upstairs is finished!

February 4: Downstairs flooring

The tile for the new downstairs room was delivered today!

January 31: tile-ready

The floor in the new room is now tile-ready!
The tile is scheduled for delivery at the end of the week.

(And, apparently, my camera lens is scheduled for a spot cleaning.)

January 22: prepping for tile


We started putting down HardiBacker to prepare the floor for tile.
And, again, my two sentries keep eye over the supplies.

January 9: bedroom flooring begins

We started on the floor in the upstairs bedroom...
the part around the closets will be saved for another night!

January 1: a new year

We know how to throw a party!
To start 2011, my man started hanging gutters on the addition...

...and he raided the shed for leftover laminate flooring.

Blessing #6 has designated herself sentry to the boxes.
And when she's not working, Mowgli dutifully keeps watch.

December 22: fan club!

Today was fan day! the new room... the entryway...

(whoa! Crazy CJ way up high installing a very big fan!)

...and in the attic room...

December 21: opened up

Today they took down the temporary board
that was in the old kitchen window....

This was, of course, the one day I hadn't gotten
the dirty dishes into the dishwasher!

Plastic came down, too, and everything is all opened up! 
Getting ready to repaint the old bedroom....

A before picture of our window in the entryway...

The collared-up cat hanging out on the saw table!
