Great, Full Day Before the Rain Comes Tomorrow!!

Oh, we had such a productive day today!!  Kelly and Jordan got all the cross beams up on the trusses so we could get up on the roof and then when we got up on the roof, well Jordan did, it was just too scary for me to see him up there trying to hammer in the nails on the roofing.

So, we talked with a guy this evening who will come and safely get the roof done.  It will be money well spent!

We did get the 3 windows in today too!!  Kelly is adding exterior calking over the red tape that is both for water-proofing and insulating.  I learned how to do that on YouTube!!  Thank goodness for Youtube!!

Pretty spiffy, right??

Now just to remind you, the picture above is how the front of the Studio is SUPPOSED to look.  Well, I decided I wanted a big picture window out there instead of those doors (that we were never going to use) and so today we also framed in the front wall for a 6' by 3' window!!  

Not only will it give me more light but it will give me a view of the weather and the trees and the cars zooming down the road!!  If it is not still raining tomorrow after Kelly comes home from his interview for a Sommelier position at Bandon Dunes Golf Resort, we are going to try to get that window installed.  Well, why not, heck we are pros now that we have installed the three small windows on the side!!  :-))

See ya all next time!!


  1. Looking great. I like the idea of the big window.

  2. Looking good Kris. I wouldn't get on the roof either ... safety first!

  3. Good call to go for the big window instead of the big doors. You won't feel like you are in a basement, or something. :)
    Wishing Kelly well on his interview.

  4. Oh, wow! It is looking SO nice! I can't wait to see the finished product! Great job, my friend!!!

  5. Coming right along! It’s so nice to see!

  6. I think I would have traded the doors to have a large window, too. The doors would have been great in summer, wide open, lots of light. But only in warm weather. Now you can have light all year long. I have to say I admire you and your crew for doing this work on your own. What a sense of accomplishment you will have!


Work Continues in the Mud Room . . .

We have been getting the glass block window framing ready to go for the glass block window. First we had to tear out the frame that was...
