every weekend is exciting!

Hubby works on the house, and comes home disappointed not much was finished..but he doesn't see the large's getting closer..each and every time!

This weekend..there wasn't a huge variety of stuff completed..but one major job was done..he managed to put back the ceiling beams in the living room..had to remove them to do the plumbing, without cutting any...and instead of the 2 x 12 beams that were there, he replaced them with 2x4's..seeing they are only there to hang the ceiling sheet rock on..that gives us a higher ceiling height. not a huge change, but it makes it almost 8 foot..and I'm happy with that.

Then, he finished repairing the ceiling beams in the kitchen...five of them were bits put together to make a long piece, and hubby wanted to be sure it was strong, so he replaced some, with a larger over lap, so it would have some strength.

Next weekend, he plans on insulating the sun porch..and trying to put the firring strips on the outer walls, so the electrician can come back..then we can insulate the downstairs! Let's hope having an extra day next weekend, he can get more done, would love to not have to have the furnace sucking so much oil down!

It seems we went in a complete circle..bought the house, there was snow on the ground..and it's back again! Almost a year.....
