But it is so good to finally see the black strips of the foam block concrete walls disappear.
But this laundry room really does have a lot of the guts of the house between HRV, electrical and plumbing.
It seems that no piece of drywall could just be put up but multiple holes were cut out of each to fit around things in the wall.

But honestly I don't mind saying good-bye to the guts of the house before it was all covered up.

Finally this week I found the time and everything just clicked.
I just stayed in my sewing room until it was all done.
Add to that some much needed mending for my "tough on clothes" husband.
And I call that a great day with a lot accomplished. Hillary's project is now in the mail and on its way to New Jersey. Hope it is what she had in mind!

Then came some insulation, trying to provide more of a sound barrier for the guest room above.
And finally the first pieces of drywall were put into place.
Now, you all know, Zeke loves eating drywall. You must just imagine his joy when our clothes become covered in the fine dust. He loves to lick our pants.
Oh Boy, We need to keep the door shut. But at least the drywall process is started. We are now in for the long haul. Stay tuned for updates.

And at the end of the day I had 2 gallon freezer bags full of meat balls
And 18 mini-meat loafs
It is all wrapped up and back in our freezer ready for when they are needed. What a great feeling.
