There are walls, sort of.

Some walls at least, and lots more dry wall hanging out ready to be put up.

We have some of the best friends and family around, everyone came out on Sunday to help us even though there had been a pretty big snow storm the night before.  Hey this is Wisconsin, if ya can't go out when it snows you'd be stuck inside from December to March.

So the guys (and me some but mostly them) carried down ALL the dry wall that was in our garage, somewhere about 100 pieces.  Let me tell you it is a pain in the butt!  We had to come into the back and sort of make a Y and then go down the stairs.  It works best with a tall person going down backward and the shorter person going down forward from the top. 

After we got it all down there we had to determine what the heck we were doing (LOL).  Randy, Jason and my dad set up in the bathroom and went to work.  Randy and Jason really did a great job measuring (after the first one) and cutting out for the pipes and junk that comes out of the wall.

Tub (that heats and circulates water) and shower.

Jerry, Shawn and I got to work in the living room area hanging the outside wall to the bedroom and bathroom.  Of course there were a few snafus but we got it up and drilled on tightly!  Mike helped out tons too, he's more handy than he wants me to think ;)  I think he's been faking to get out of "Honey Do" lists.  Once Jason had to leave it was him and Randy that figured out some issues in the bathroom. 

I love that there is progress but on the other hand I keep thinking that there is still so much more to do and everything is so time consuming.  With only one day a week to work on it, it takes FOREVER.  So I'm hoping we'll get some extra help from a few people now (I think I'm using up all my favors and going to be owing a few more).  We really really need this to be done.  We need the space and privacy.  Did I mention space?
