Forward Motion

Jeff and Randy got the living room cleaned out (which we have never seen before) and sheetrock up on the wall it shares with the foyer (which we have also never seen before). We are starting to see the beginnings of a room...



They taped and put up the first layer of mud yesterday. Jeff is working on another layer today. One problem we have had with this room is that there is not enough of the original flooring to do the entire room. I'm still not sure exactly what we'll do about this... over the years there have been discussions of patching with another wood, getting lucky enough to get heart pine out of an old house that is being torn down, using that wood somewhere else and buying another wood for the room... and now we come to the point where a decision is not far off. Sadly, we just missed the demolition of an old house here in our town.
