We are told they will be done today. They are making a lot of noise up there today, installing the floor. This is the first time we’ve heard hammering and banging. They brought in more wall board yesterday, which baffled us. Maybe they will use it to level the floor? They also brought in pressed board, which I assume is for the subflooring.
Here are some pictures.
The wall board is all finished now. We are going to paint it ourselves.
The new window.
How the window looks from outside. I had kind of liked the old brown window,
which I asked them to leave for us,
but it was in pretty rough condition, especially on the outside. And it was pretty drafty. I have some plans for it. Stay tuned. [link to picture of window project]
I asked Jim to stand in the dormer space to show how tall it is.
Now for the floor and to answer anyone who might ask why didn’t we just use the floor that was there. First of all it didn’t cover the entire space, as you can see above.
Then it had some bad spots.
But mainly there was this rod going across the middle of the room just waiting to trip someone.
The rod is several inches above the floor at the outside, but close to the floor near the door.
And here is what I have been working on the past few days. I finished the border on the rosemaled panel I did, and we hung it in the fireplace. Again this is covering a very ugly, unusable fireplace.
This is hole 6 on the Golf course at Laval which Jim played and I walked yesterday. It hasn’t been nice enough to get out on the weekends, so Jim worked half days last weekend and took off yesterday afternoon to play golf in the sunshine. In this photo you can see the green and part of the fairway. The valley that you can’t see goes way down and the tee is way down below the plateau you see in the distance. This was quite a hole. It was a pretty golf course, though with beautiful views in all directions and a few holes going along the Mayenne river.
Okay, leave me comments to let me know you are reading this. It’s not really worth my time if no one reads it or lets me know what they think.
