I’m not sure, but I think I see a completed room on the horizon.

The Lillys joined us on Monday and will be helping us all week with the nursery remodel. We’ve got all the holes in the room patched, the molding removed, the walls taped, mudded, and textured…we’ll be painting once the joint compound dries which probably means Friday or Saturday.

The best news of all this is that taping and mudding (applying joint compound) turns out to be no big deal whatsoever. (Which, in fairness, is exactly what Joe’s been telling me all along.) That being the case, there is at least a 50-50 chance of Erin and me wanting to demo, insulate, sheetrock, tape, and mud the garage this summer. It would be really nifty to have the whole north end of the house insulated and up to fire code standards too. But that’s down the road.

For now, all continues to go well with the nursery, and we again send out our continuing thanks to everyone who has contributed to this remodel project.
