Dr. Michelangelo



We have 9' ceilings. Dr. Michelangelo is up high, on home-made scaffolding, mudding away, whistling, making puns and singing 70's songs.  (Can you believe this man is kissing 50?! Dang, why is he aging soo very much better than me??!!)

This is the room leading to the attic that we took the closet out of that Jack built. It was a huge closet but made for an awkward L shaped room that wasn't fit for man or beast (well, that's only cause we don't let the beasts not counting children inside, but I digress). We sacrificed the closet and now have a really decent sized/shaped room that leads to the walk-up attic room, complete with dormer window. There is lots of talk about who gets it and room trading going on and I've strongly considered pulling rank and claiming it and turning the attic into a writer's loft. It's gonna be awhile though till we get stuff moved up there 'cause this room alone needs sanded and more mud where the plaster board and drywall meet. KB did an awesome job of seaming the ceiling along the east wall. That's where we put in more structural support and created a huge wall length sized closet. (I had more pics  but Blogger's not loading very well today). I did a great job of laughing at the puns (no small sacrifice) and butchering the words to the 70's songs.  (I did work on mudding a bit but then made the mistake of getting up and down a ladder at which point my leg rebelled and demanded sitting and more ibuprofen.).

Dh looks so much better than me, and he has more gray hair.

We just moved beyond sheet rock taping and mudding and onto paint (ouch $$$)for DD~8's attic room. Her color choice-pink. Her room is going to look like a cake when we're done.

That is just great! Can't wait to see the finished room. I would most definately claim it as a writers loft/craft room!
