Today was another beautiful day in Baton Rouge. It was also pretty hot, 89. But we are working inside and it wasn’t too bad.
Of course the day started with morning meeting and devotion. We are working out at Richard’s so we started at 7:30 since it takes a while to get out to Baker. When we arrived we were all smiles. The house looks great! Suzanne and her various crews did an awesome job on the siding. The inside is looking good too. Since we left, the drywall has been installed, the shower in the master bath installed, a bathtub has been installed in the second bath. The master bedroom got a coat of Kilz last week and the second bedroom, bath a closet had part of the drywall tape and mud applied. Part of the living room and kitchen have been painted. It is starting to look really good.
Today we all worked really hard. Stel and Lisa began the day in the master bedroom area, painting the ceiling. Later Lisa painted the master bath and Stel did some drywall work. Carol, Anne, Max, and Mark worked in the second bedroom, bath and closet most of the day. There was a lot of sanding to do. There was drywall dust in the ears, drywall dust in the nose, drywall dust in the hair, drywall dust everywhere! Yes, we wore masks. Max and Dave began installing some underlayment in the master bedroom late this afternoon. Max and Dave also worked on determining what trim we need.
We got to visit with Richard and Sandy and it was great to see them again. Sandy was really pleased to start seeing the paint on the walls – paint she selected. There is still an awful lot to do and we only have two weeks left on this NOMADS project. We are working hard to complete the house. Hopefully we will get it done.
