We have officially started adding on to the house
GT, luckily, has a background in construction so he knows a lot about what has to happen
You know, where pipes go, what machines to use, what dimensions to use, how much things cost, how to use the machines....you get the point.
it's rather helpful
He has started the process of getting the add-on built and we'll call in some professionals to finish the job.
Mostly, we don't have time for GT to do it all himself. He works all day and we're gone most weekends
and also, another thing....
...We're having a baby in roughly 3 months...yikes!
Last weekend, GT rented a stripper. ha!
I laugh every time i say that.
the only stripper i'll ever approve of
and stripped up the nasty old linoleum floor in our kitchen and laundry room
next step is to stain the concrete that will extend into the add-on so the floors flow
he then ripped out the carpet in our bathroom
(why would you put carpet in your bathroom anyway???? thank you 1983)
he also had some dirt brought in to level out the ground for the addition
Trigger thinks he is a mountain goat and this is his domain
Trig promptly moved when he saw the Deere coming
then Trig took over, again
I'll tell you one thing...leveling out all of that dirt is tedious work.
not for me!
thankfully GT has more patience than I do
also, i almost ran the tractor into the barn so I was fired from driving it...for now
we also have lovely deer in our back pasture
I'm thankful for my man knowing how to do stuff and work hard
Soon, we'll have a baby room and a guest room
so, come on over!!!
Happy weekend friends,
