More progress...

For those of you who don't remember what my garage looked like before the remodel started....

After having workers in all week, I thought I'd get the weekend off to catch up on some things.  My contractor forget his phone and my doorbell is ringing at 8:00 a.m this morning (Saturday).  Imagine his surprise and confusion at seeing me in my pj's.  He was asking where the drywall hanging crew was, and I said I didn't know they were even scheduled... He walked away with a dazed look on his face and said he'd talk to me later.

Good thing he woke me up, they arrived about fifteen minutes later and in two hours we went from insulation to insulation and ceilings...

I have to admit, I got a little teary eyed when I saw the ceiling boards.  It's finally starting to come together in such a big way.  I'd just been unable to visualize the room with the rafters showing.  Now I get it.

The same thing is happening with the back porch.  Only when the ceiling is put in will I realize that it will be an outdoor room and not the view from a tree-house (a wonderful description by one of my fellow artists and Facebook friends of the picture from my last post).

Still, it is all really exciting and we all know that a feeling of excitement is a good thing.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend and I'll keep you posted.

Oh, and just so you'll know this remodel really is taking place in my home here is a scary self taken picture...remind me to not raise my arms in about wrinkles...sheesh

Man, I wish I lived closer. When it's complete I would come over for some sweet tea and southern hospitality.
