Renovations….Day 2

It was another productive day today. Early this morning we had the head electrician and his two “worker bees” come by to do all of the new wiring, putting in lights and generally checking that off of the to do list.

Lights in the two upstairs showers:

Empty Shower Ceiling


In Process

I guess I left a few towels laying around in there that they had to move out of the bathtub…but no one even takes a shower in there.

They tied the new light to the existing one outside of the tub to make things a whole lot easier.

Bathroom #1 Finished


Ben’s Bath


Ben seems excited (or as excited as a 16 year old boy can be) about taking a shower with some actual light.

Then the guys got working on moving the light switch out of the hall and into the living room with the rest of the switches. The guys were super sweet and had no problem vamping for the camera. I did warn them that I was a scrapbooker and that they should expect to see the camera often. :)

Looking for a place to put the switch and the cable:


Wayne would probably want this drill bit. Does he need it? Noooooo, but “isn’t it cool”.

Ready for the drywall:


Then there was the new electrical plug. I do feel for the drywall guy who is supposed to come as early as tomorrow.

There was another misunderstanding today with the crews. Yesterday the carpenter said he was going to be here at 9am but he didn’t actually get here until after 11. Today there was an issue between the electricians and the contractor regarding scaffolding. Since the scaffolding wasn’t here today the lights in the ceiling didn’t actually go into the living room but I understand that they will be back later this week to finish putting them back in.

Josh left to go back to Austin this afternoon but while he was here he vamped for the camera while the carpenter in the background was working on the new fir so that the crown molding would have someplace to land when they put it in.

Here is where they left it yesterday:


This is what they did with it today….finally got rid of the UGLY brick

Now I know that these pictures aren’t that exciting, especially since there is so much white against white and it seems as though not a lot is actually getting completed but tomorrow there should be quite a bit more visual progress. Tomorrow the sheetrocker (is that even a word) is going to be here working on all of the holes and start painting in the “termite room” and the master carpenter will be here starting on the new fireplace.
