I painted the ceiling, but it looks like it needs another coat. Painting a ceiling is hard!
I'll let Jason do that :)
Jason bought and had this duct work cut so he can move the old wall vent to the island. We'll see if that is easy or not.
Jason has been getting really good at patching plaster holes (that he's made). He's been very busy the last few weeks with many work concerts and contract negotiations, but he's been fitting in things here and there. The next few weeks are slower for him, so be prepared for lots of changes! We have a plan for the hallway situation and should be getting things underway soon!
We have finished the primer coat in the kitchen. I think the flat ceiling looks nice! The drywall guy was not sure it would look good because the beams are a little uneven, but I don't think you can tell. I was insistent on preserving the historical look of a plaster ceiling if possible.
Jason is working on some electrical stuff.
He is also repairing some plaster and getting it ready for painting.
The color is called Homestead Resort Pumpkin, whatever that means. It is a little hard to see the true color from this picture, but it is a golden yellow. And actually this is the tinted primer, so perhaps it will look a little different when we get the next coat up. I'm really digging it!
This picture shows it a little better. I've never painted before, and I did this pretty much by myself. I quit before I painted the ceiling, so we'll do that tomorrow most likely.
Floor progress! We're actually a little stuck on that right now.
We don't know how to transition the bedroom existing hardwoods to the new hardwoods in the hallway. Any suggestions? We won't be able to continue until we figure it out.
