    We have been busy here at home, took apart the living room and hallways and entryway and scraped off all the acoustic off the ceilings and stripped out the carpet and one paneled wall, got a guy coming to texture it all, fix a few cracks and retape a few wall to ceiling joints, then on to painting it all...... haven't decided on flooring as yet so we have to figure out what to do there, but Momma is so happy to be rid of that carpet (10 years or older) it is gonna be a whole different place.... we did the roof in december, there were 3 on there so it all came off and everything new up top and all gutters and downspouts to go with it......

    Lots of work there Jam. Please tell me you're not gonna put up popcorn on the ceiling . :D Knock down looks the best, but a bare ceiling is so easy to clean or repaint.

    Looking good @Jam Racing 1. The outside nearly looks like a totally different house with the new roof and gutters.

    My son Jason spent the weekend here doing the flooring, he knows I have trouble getting down here to do this and he spent alot of time making sure the floors turned out so nice, a few little things to finish, baseboards and a couple of closets left to finish then we can get back to normal....
