The Grand House

The Guts of our House

I hope these are the last pictures I show you of the “guts” of our house. I always get to this point in our renovation where I’m dying to see WALLS!

Henry and Momma are posing right there in Momma’s new home office.

It’s part of our third floor that includes a guest bedroom and a full bath.

This floor is actually ready for drywall and WE ARE SO JAZZED!

Our second and first floors aren’t far behind. You can see all our yellow electrical wires hanging…they are in place and ready to go.

Spray foam is in the whole house too. When we took Henry to see it this weekend, he poked his fingers in all of it! Haha!!

Got some big weeks coming up…can’t wait to share with you!

My STUD built a STUD wall.

Too much?? Yeah, you’re right…don’t want to get all lovey-dovey here on my HOME IMPROVEMENT blog. 🙂

Tell me you knew a picture like that was coming next. (BTW – I made Mark flex…he is not happy about this picture). We framed in our upstairs with stud walls so the plumber and electrician could come in and run their pipes and wires.

We used a framing square to make sure our walls were all squared up. And then grabbed our trusty level…

Once we knew our studs were level, Mark fastened them with screws.

I never knew STUD WALLS would make our upstairs feel like it’s actually coming together!! It finally doesn’t look like one, big, dirty space. 🙂

Our first VIDEO blog because who doesn’t love a shaky iPhone video?!

Welcome to our first VIDEO blog!! What did we do before iPhones…seriously, how did we survive??

I thought it would be cool to show you how our upstairs is shaping up. Now that we’re putting stud walls in it’s much easier to visualize how it will look. Hope you like the quick tour…cheers!
