All of the sheet rock has been hung. We are now waiting for the mudding and taping. Downstairs they will be plastering over the drywall since all of our walls were plaster. Now we are at the mercy of Ameren IP, our electric company. The recent ice storms caused major power outages. We had a work order in for the gas to be turned back on because they need the furnace running for the wall finishing. Needless to say, we probably won't be getting the gas back on anytime soon considering there are still 100,000+ people without electric service in the St Louis Metro, 5 days after the storm. We don't even know if we have electric for the furnace either. So like many others in the area, we are waiting on IP. (On the bright side, our rental never lost power so we were very fortunate to have a warm place to stay.)
The foyer has been stocked with bags of plaster.
Our bedroom is still doubling as a storage room. The pile of lumber is all of my beloved woodwoork. I don't know what the broken piece is, I am hoping it isn't anything important. . . biting my nails on that one!
The kitchen, still waiting for cabinets.
Looking down the stairs at the back doors. When we bought the house the landing was all just exposed studs. It was an unfinished remodel project by the previous owners. It is really nice seeing it closed in. Although I think we will all miss the opening in the wall where we could throw dirty laundry down to the laundry area. Now we will have to carry it all the way down.
Looking toward the back dormer. The remants of the closet in this room are gone. It is now just one open room. The wall around the stairs was pretty low before and didn't go all the way to the wall, there was actually a gap there. We had the wall raised and connected so it would be a little safer. Because of the window it is a little odd shaped there, but a whole lot safer.
Looking toward the other dormer. I think I mentioned before that we decided to take down the wall that divided the space into two rooms. It makes for one really large, long room.
Looking back toward the back. One the right is the bathroom. In the center you can see the chimney which we drywalled around.
