A Work In Progress

Work is progressing on my kitchen.  Tonight the drywall went up.  Grant Drywall guys ROCK!  Grant is a young father who works in a nasty factory job and is trying to get his own business started.  He and his 16 yr. old foster son are doing the work after Grant gets off in the evenings.  Last night they took down the old lights, too off all the scaling crap and prepped the ceiling with shims, etc.  Tonight the heavy, dirty stuff began.

I thought I would show you their work in progress. Note:  All those decorator "tins" are in garbage bags in my garage for anyone who wants them.  I saved the granite tea kettle for myself, sorry!

  1.  This is the major hole left by the storm which tore loose upper level siding, which in turn let water leak into my kitchen ceiling.
 Here's tonight's work.  No taping started yet, but progress is being made.

 Here's another view of the ravaged ceiling. 
Here's the progress they made in one evening.

I will continue to update as the work goes along.  I have new lighting going in.  There will be a white ceiling fan in the kitchen with lights.  The dining area, which I will show you later is getting a new ceiling too since it's part of this one, but sustained no damage.  But a new light is going in there, too.  I am so excited.  Wowza!!

It's quite a job, but it seems to be coming along nicely.
