Terror in the attic II

Need more room in the house.* Kids are growing. House too small. Spent from last Friday to Tuesday clearing out the attic. Threw the junk stored up there in one pile and clothes and toys to donate to Goodwill and Rescue Mission in another pile. Tore out the 1972 carpet filled with dust. Tore out the old ceiling tile. Wednesday installed new ceiling tile, installed two new light fixtures and new outlets. Thursday installed new ceiling moulding and trim and painted old dark paneling with one coat primer and two coats new Churchill Hotel Ivory until 1 a.m. Today installed new wood flooring. Almost finished up with that. Just few pieces to cut in and put floor trim in. Contractor is nearly finished installing new windows. I'm tired. But mostly happy. * Sorry for the lack of complete sentences. I'm really too tired to be blogging.

Sorry that I've been away too long. Love your re-written MSOC piece down thread!

I was wondering, did you ever re-roof - and did you go with the metal?

farfetched, ha, imagine a eight days of one of those weekends.

42, thanks.
We ended up getting 35-year shingles. Only one of the roofers did metal roofing and the price was four times higher.
