We've possibly bit off more than we can chew. Ha Ha Well maybe not, we are gnawing and chewing as fast as we can. It is coming along really quickly thanks to a VERY motivated and energized Mr Wonderful! He is on a mission and working late into the night several nights already. Thankfully his work schedule has been fairly light lately so he is able to put some more focus into the remodel than he'd have normally been able to.
We are currently on the 2nd coat of mud (joint compound) on the walls. It feels great to be this far and I can't wait until the end result.
We extended one wall out to give us more options in arranging furniture in the living area, on the backside of the new wall we want to install a new woodstove at some point down the road. We took out a short wall that had openings in it that we didn't care for.
BEFORE: The wall behind Tobers got tore out back to the door. The wall Tobers is working on got extended a couple feet and the opening was filled in. You can see the "lovely" two tone paneling and painted wallpaper covered sheetrock board walls.
DURING (sneak peek): You can see the short wall section by the door is now gone, and the other wall is longer and the opening is filled in now! Woodstove will go behind this wall, so the wood mess isn't facing the living room area. The sheetrock is up but we hadn't started the joint compound quite yet. We added bullnose corners for something different.
I will keep you posted and hopefully we will have some final after pictures to share soon.
Tomorrow is Spud Man's 13th birthday! I can't believe we will have two teenagers now. Looking forward to many good times ahead and fun adventures as these kiddos grow into adults.
