House Update

The house is moving along faster than I expected, especially considering that I've been sick...we've had a ton of help from some pro friends and family (painters, drywallers, paper hangers, etc.). I am feeling better today (36 hours seems to be about how long it usually takes for a fever to break for me), and I was able to get in on the painting fun.

We've got most of the house primed now that all of the popcorn ceiling has been removed and replaced with knockdown. Tricia and I purchased most of our paint today, and the living room ceiling is done and the guest bedroom now has it's first coat.

Tomorrow, I'll post the next edition of the video house tour...you should see a remarkable difference.

Gwyneth is also doing better...a little bit of snot and a scratchy throat seem to be all that is remaining.

Thanks!

Nate
