On Friday, we sprayed and knocked down the ceiling in the living room. It was quite a challenge considering the peak is 14’ high. Before we could shoot the joint compound onto the ceiling, we needed to tape off everything we didn’t want to get messy. That in itself was a tedious job. It was a little scary considering that below this ledge is the stairs to the basement. I don’t have an extreme fear of heights, but they do scare me a bit. I felt safest on my back so I couldn’t look down, plus it was easier for me to work that way.You can’t tell much from this picture, but the ceiling is sprayed and the “muck” is all over everything.
It was another slow moving day visually, but Patrick and Chad continued working with electrical, plumbing and duct work. They did get the stairs closed in with sheet rock.
Chad wired the new ceiling with a place for a pendant light and I got a pleasant surprise when I came home to lights in the storage area. I love surprises like this.
Patrick is moving this floor vent in the kitchen off the floor and into the toe-kick area of the cabinets. I think floor vents in front of kitchen cabinets should be disallowed altogether. We had one at our old house and it was a continuous battle to keep it clean. This is yet another perk of having your brother as your contractor.
