In anticipation of an awesome Saturday filled with heavy sheets of drywall and deep pockets filled with cash ... er, drywall screws .. I called the local rental store and reserved a drywall lift. It will take a little over 6 sheets of drywall to cover the ceiling. I'm going to be happy when it's all done because then I get the awesome opportunity to tape and mud the ceiling. There currently isn't any overhead lights in the rooms, so I'll add those in and run the wires through the ceiling. While I'm at it, I'll be running some wires for outlets as well as the entire house has old knob and tube wiring. It's a lot of work, yet also worth the effort to know the wiring is safe and secure. And I get to place the lights where I want them .. along with the switches. The rooms won't be big by American standards but everyone will have their own bedroom when this project is complete and I'm looking forward to blogging about the process. Awesome.

I've been away from blogging for quite some time to pursue my art interests, but now that I've found my little niche in the art world, I would like to give blogging another shot. I'm not one of those 'new blog post every day at 2pm types' .. weekly updates are more realistic. Nevertheless, I thought I'd post a pic of the house we are looking at. We are weekend warrior house flippers, but this house isn't a flip, it's a home. Not much of the original character is left inside except some painted woodwork and beat up hardwood floors, but it does have it's original exterior stucco and wood accents. It's a prairie style foursquare house, with deep overhangs from the hip roof and original window planter boxes on both levels. More on those later. For now, here's a couple pics of the exterior. We don't close on the house for another month, so please stop back in May, I have a feeling this house will be a fun one to blog about. :)
