The last 'big push' weekend was - to my thinking - an unqualified success. We got more done in the weekend than would have otherwise been done the entire year. I was completely satisfied.
Dad, however, was not.
He had expected that we would complete the ceilings, and we didn't, so something had to be done. And it was: When visiting my sister a few weeks later, he kidnapped my brother-in-law and showed up at the cabin at noon on a Thursday. By Friday noon, the ceilings were done, and more of the plaster sanding to boot. Here are some photos...
|While the boys worked upstairs, the LSW took the 'easy' work sanding the sheetrock plaster. She can attest that it's unpleasant at best, but at least we're close to done.|
|The upstairs isn't quite as hot with the insulation in place, but we definitely needed the fan. The weather was cooler than the prior work weekend, though, so we considered ourselves lucky.|
In other news...
|The Boy decided that he was Indiana Jones all weekend, despite the cowboy hat, 6-shooter and badge. Here he's holding Geocache #25 for the Vermonster family.|
|The Boy also lost another tooth over the weekend, and found himself 90 cents richer once we helped the Tooth Fairy scrounge for change.|
