Nail Gun Success!

Family room ceiling is done and I am still able to use all my digits to write this blog. As you can see from the photo, we finished at 7 minutes until 5:00. Perfect timing for a happy hour relaxing beverage. All the trim is still needed, but the room looks pretty finished. Still amazed at how much work Carl has done/will need to do, to make this cabin a wonderful lake home. He has started up the stairway to the studio, and when I go back to join him again, I can help with the walls. We have been told the excavation will happen on Monday, then more cement after that. Lots of sewing to do but still a couple of weeks away from being able to set up shop. Patience is a virtue. We had the suggestion from Carl's daughter, Barb, to put a futon in the family room. Great idea! We found a wonderful wooden one at Slumberland that is pretty comfy - even Carl was impressed. Now it will feel and look more like a living space than a bedroom space. The futon mattress cover is just a light tan micro suede - someone will have to make a jazzier cover for it!!! Jerilynn
