Getting it done, baby! Extra joists are up in the attic, all temporary support walls are down, and it’s time to move on to lighting, drywall, and paint. Tomorrow my newest brother Mike and I are gonna hit Home Depot for some lighting hardware, and he’s gonna have his crew rip the whole thing on Friday. After that will be drywall, which takes about a week.
Then it’ll be time to paint, doing the whole place in the starkest, snowiest, most sterile flat white available. Starting with a clean, fresh canvas. In more ways than one. An appropriate backdrop for what’s to come.
Maybe I should turn it into a paint party. Wing a batch of salsa. Throw on some steaks. Flow the Tecate. Wanna come?
