this week at the house

So here is what the house looks like this week.
We moved the office furniture into the family room because we are painting the office. My dad (that is him) came over to help me do some flooring in the laundry room and pick up a door for the office. It is a sliding closet door. You see that big entry way in the center of the photo, yeah there used to be a sliding glass door there. After my dad and I finished the floor, and picked up the door, he suggested that we just put the door in real quick. Well, really it was more like lets take the door our and then stop. The sheetrockers are coming out tomorrow. THEN, I can put in the new door.
Today, my cousin, an electrician came over and did a panel change for us. We used to have a super old panel called a pushmatic. I guess we needed another one. So between the sears repair man and the sheetrocker guy (coming over to give an estimate) I helped him.
And here, well, I just thought the light was cool.

some finished photos

So, it's Chris here, I'm waiting for some software to install so I thought I'd blog real quick like. This is our finished bedroom.
Caitlin really wanted to do this stick thing, I thought it was silly, now I love it.
As you can see we still have some little minor details that need buttoning up, like paint on the original 47 year old hardwoods.
Groovy simple doorknobs.
Hairy rug.
Okay, so we did ruin a few things, we tried to use a hole drill to make the knob holes bigger to fit the knew door handles we got. Yeah, the drill kinda got away from me.
Some original built in cabinets, check out the Jetson's door pulls.
This is Gunnar's bed.
Also, as a reward to you for reading this far, our hallway, and Caitlin working away in the office.

The building of a piece of office furniture

Here is a REALLY short little taste of what we will have soon for you on the master bedroom. I did this for a really simple piece that is in the office.
