I am currently on pregnancy bed rest, so unfortunately my involvement with the projects around our house has come to a temporary standstill. My husband on the other hand has been quite busy working on a number of projects. Currently, he is working on building some pantry cabinets for the unused space in our laundry room, and a major project with the bedrooms.
The bedrooms all have gross popcorn ceilings, so while he is doing a massive reorganization of these rooms, he is taking the chance to first scrape the popcorn off the ceilings. Luckily for us, the popcorn ceilings were actually recently applied by the previous owners, and one of the inspectors tested them to show that they are not the asbestos based popcorn ceilings that were so popular in decades past. Which means he can safely remove the popcorn himself, without having to hire a team of professionals. Before he started, he laid down paper floor tarp to catch everything he scraped off. Next he will start repainting the rooms.
He also recently did a major overhaul on the bedroom that will be the baby’s room. Since our house has literally no insulation, he opened up the wall and added insulation, made new trim for around the window, painted, and more. Eventually, he plans to do the same for the other bedrooms as well, but in the interest of time (the baby will be coming soon!), the other rooms will be fine with just a new coat of paint for now.
I apologize for the cell phone only pictures. I am not allowed to lift anything at the moment, which includes my dSLR. “Real” pictures of all of the rooms will be coming as soon as my doctor says I am allowed to start walking around/lifting things again! 🙂
