Front Stairs built, Mud work in Front Closet, Texture in Office

Moving along!

Rich finished building the front hall stairs and putting sheetrock up in the closet that is under it.  Our friend finished the mud work in the closet and little entryway as well!

And got the texture done in the Office!  Even purchased some paint!

The Front Stairs from the Foyer up to the 2nd floor... in process!

Painting 1st floor closets!

Our Mudding Angel...

We were stuck.  Well, at least I was feeling stuck.  Like I needed to climb a huge mountain... but just couldn't...  then I fell and broke my shoulder.

That's when a friend step in to help us with the mud work!  He has honestly been like an angel to us!

He did mud work professionally at one point in his varied career.  He works tremendously fast and does an excellent job!

I am so grateful for his kindness!!!

The good news is that the mud work is almost complete!  Only the Family Room and Foyer are left!

And now... I feel like we've climbed to almost the top of the mountain.  And... I can see the bottom!!!!

Sheetrock installed in Living Room on 12/24/11

My Christmas present was a living room with sheetrock installed!  We finished installing this at 4pm on Christmas Eve!

We placed furniture temporarily in the living room and that's where we all gathered to open gifts!
