I've been trying to get here for 4 or 5 days. Apologies for the delay. I'm just going to jump head first into the pictures because there is a lot to show. Going in order....
Our custom made bathroom cabinets are in! Scott's friend made them for us from bamboo. Sorry for the crappy photo. It was night time and it's my iphone...blah blah blah. This is just sitting on the floor in the dining room. Can't wait to show it to you hanging on the wall!
Let there be LIGHT! Ryan shouted "progress" as all the recessed lighting was finished and working.
Let's do reminder shots of the kitchen/family room progress -
The day we purchased it:
A few days later:
Several days later:
A few days ago "we" (yes, there is a mouse in my pocket) added insulation:
Yesterday drywall started going up:
Dang they are fast!
Look at that kitchen!
I've been out of town this weekend while all of this is going on but Ryan and Scott have been documenting. I can't WAIT to get home Monday and see the progress. There's more mudding of the walls to be done and two bathrooms to drywall yet.
From what I know the outside of the house is being touched up with paint this weekend and the framing in my bathroom (previously the 80's bathroom) is being repaired since the ceiling framing was not properly installed (shocker).
Also, something I shared on facebook but want to document here...I put a time capsule together based on the idea from Baz and his awesome blog. The time capsule includes: Section A of the Indianapolis Star on 10/13/2010, 6 pictures (3 of the house, 2 of our wedding and 1 of our dog, Pippet), a letter detailing what we've been doing to the house and talking about our plans for the future there, 2 coins minted 2010, 1 stamp, a receipt from my lunch at Panera Bread on 10/14/2010, a Naptown Roller Girls sticker and a Sun King Brewing patch.
Here's a shot of it in the wall before drywalling (it's in the wall where the bar will be):
OH!! And, good news: The bamboo came in for our flooring!
That's that for today. We'll be rocking and rolling from here on out.
