Bonus Room Progress

The electricity will get inspected by the city this week. Then it is all ready for drywall. I left a message for them and HOPE they can come at the end of this week or early next week. We'll see. We still have to insulate the ceiling, but that shouldn't take long. We'll have to do that one night this week. I'm just glad we got it cleaned out. I was picking up totes and handing them to David who was on a ladder to put in the attic. That wore me out completely. I had to go lay down after that. I really don't like that aspect of pregnancy. Then I fixed lunch for the kiddos. David kept working and after I finished with that, the room was pretty much cleared out. HURRAY for David. I vacuumed up a bunch of dust and junk and of course THAT wore me out too. grrrr. You can see the room a bit better now that there isn't so much stuff all over the place.

This is taken from the front of the room. The TV will go on that far wall. You can see the door to the hall on the right.

This is the right side of the room, taken from the door to the hall. There is a closet in that corner.

This is the front of the room. This is where we'll put a bed and Elijah's crib. There is another closet on the right.

Couldn't get a decent picture of this wall . This window is opposite the door to the hall, with closets on either side. We may add a built-in under the window... a bench with a hinged seat for storage.

Hopefully this room will quickly take shape now that we finally got the permit. I HOPE to get the drywall done by the end of next week, paint (ourselves) next weekend, get the carpet laid the next week, and then get the trim guy out here the week of the 28th.
My stomach is growling and it sounds so weird b/c it is on my right side, right above my elbow!

Okay, first I have to comment on the stomach growling thing...mine has been doing THE SAME THING for the past two days. High on the right side. Weird.

Anyway, I can't wait to see this room finished. It's a HUGE ROOM!!
