I’m very happy to report that after six days of putting up corrugated tin on the ceiling…….it is almost finished....just a couple more little sheets in the bathroom area to go! We’ve worked every evening since last Wednesday and all day Saturday. And let me tell you, if you want an arm workout, just put aside those weights, and hang some tin on the ceiling or even just help hang it. :) I’ve been so exhausted each night that I have no trouble falling asleep at all. I have the utmost admiration for Jason and my dad who work all day in and out of this heat and then come home and work on The Cedar Loft or out in the yard.
Also Joy and Luke were great while we worked. They usually hung out and played on the other end of the loft opposite the side we were working, when they weren’t outside. Plus, they brought us nice cool refreshing glasses of water or lemonade every now and then.
Anyway, here are a few photos of the progress. Toward the end, when it’s time for the trim work to be done, there will be trim across the tin as well, which helps hold it up even more. I think that will add rustic character as well.
Next, we’re headed to Lowe’s (tonight) for the knotty barn siding for the interior walls and for the light fixtures. I’ll be staining the siding tomorrow while Jason’s at work and we hope to get started tomorrow night hanging them (if they’re ready). Colt will be helping on Saturday, so we hope to accomplish this over the weekend.
So until next time………we’ll be working. At least it’s cool up there and we’re getting to the fun stuff……stuff that adds character!
Thanks for stopping by and for the kind comments. Have a great day!
