J. has long thought that the space over the back rooms of the house shouldn't be wasted, and has commented at various times that he should create a staircase and "loft" rooms.
Building another spec house is not feasable now with the current downturn in sales of homes in that price range. So--I assume the man is bored. I came home yesterday to furniture and pictures displaced, a hole in the wall, and a project underway.
The cats do not approve.
I have no idea how a staircase of any kind is going to fit in the designated space, but my lack of imagination is apparently not a deterant to the project.
I am staying behind the closed door which you see above!
This is the view beyond the doorway of my "lair"--where I think I'll be retreating from the uproar! I wonder if I should bring in the electric kettle, a mug and the tea.
I wasn't planning to "entertain" over the holidays--now I don't need to even think of decorating, and cleaning will be about broom and dustpan to clear up remodeling debris.
A ceiling light fixtrue has been removed and an array of tools brought in. I hope none of the cats will scale the ladder and nest in the attic insulation.
I planned to make gift pies today, but the liabilities of sifting sheetrock dust mean a postponement.
