The house doesn't have central heat and air (yet) and with the new windows in we don't even have window air units anymore. Needless to say the house gets hot, especially when you are working hard. We were all covered in sweat by the end of the day.

Even with all the heat my parents still met Brandon and I at the house in the morning and started working. Brandon worked on replacing some sheet rock in the laundry room and getting that all ready for mudding and sanding. My dad sanded down the walls in the nursery and in Monkey's room that Brandon sprayed with texture to get a even look throughout. Monkey even got in a helped a little bit. Mom and I vacuumed and swept up all the sheet rock and mudding mess. Every time anyone would start one project it seemed like the mess was multiplied by 10.

After a quick lunch my cousin Josh (the same one that made our awesome floor plans for the house) and his wife Heather came over the help paint. We got the ceilings painted in both bedrooms and closets and the nursery walls are completely painted and the closets are painted too. While we painted Brandon sprayed texture on the hall and living-room walls and ceiling. Crazy to think that this took all day but it did, and my still swollen legs and feet will attest for all the hours of standing.

This week the framers start putting up the new addition walls and roof. Once that is complete then we can get a central heat and air unit put in and the work won't be nearly as miserable. That way when it's 100+* outside we can kick the air up to a lovely 72* inside the house. I was hoping the heat would subside some but looks like this week is going to be just has hot, or maybe hotter according to the weather man. awesome...
