Slow week

This doesn't look very much different from the pictures taken earlier in the week. After the wallboard was put up on Tuesday morning, the mud guy has spent three days spackling the joints. He spends about 3 hours spreading the spackle compound. Could not have picked a worse week in which to do this as we have had nothing but rain for the last 10 days. Like about 10", what with Irene and the remnants of Lee. Which is still spreading its deluge around here. So we have been running 5 fans nonstop to help with the drying.

Tonight we are going to really seal up the plastic separating this area from the rest of the house and also vacuum up as much dust as possible. Tomorrow he will sand and that will generate tons of dust. Want to keep that out of the rest of the house as much as possible. Will have to change the air filters on the furnace also. Next week the trim goes up, and then they will paint. Don't get excited about paint possibilities as they are all variations on white, white, and white.
