We've been working on putting up the bedroom ceiling! After our big cleaning on Sunday, we enjoyed about 48 hours of cleanliness and order before destroying it all by moving our bedroom stuff into the living room. Did some framing Monday and Tuesday, and by Wednesday we were ready to insulate and put up the two full sheets of beadboard this room will take. Now we have the 5 small pieces still to go. This is our last beadboard ceiling; for the living and dining rooms, we're concocting a plan to use finished plywood. More on that soon.
Also had another very successful visit from our renovation inspector. The upshot is, next time he comes out we should be closing out our loan and ending this phase of our life and of the renovation. There will still be plenty to do on the house, but we'll be doing it on our own terms, which probably won't mean every freaking evening and weekend. If you are a friend or a family member of ours, you can expect the shameless neglect to stop sometime in January! Yay!
Don't count on the endless house-babble to go anywhere, though.
