Big Show In the Loft

On August 15th Jared, Max, Liberty, and I took a trip back to Western Washington to visit dear family and friends and fill in for a few days at Bothell Way Garage. The morning we departed Idaho, we received a large shipment of Sheetrock. At this point in the build, we are solely focused on finishing the 2700 square feet above the garage so that we can temporarily live there while we finish the remainder of the house. Our goal is to be in by October, before the winter weather hits. So anyway, this is what the loft apartment looked like the morning we left.

The drywall was on the wall four days later when we returned. Dad, Wilson, and Asher worked their tails off. Jared and the crew got right to work taping, mudding, and sanding.

After multiple trips to town for supplies and a “working” texture gun, the walls are now textured and primer is being sprayed as I pen this blog on August 31st.

So, here I sit, out on my make shift back deck, with interior paint swatches, concrete floor color pamphlets, and exterior colors still undecided, all of which must have decisions made ASAP. I was at Rodda three times yesterday, and will be there again today. So be expectant that my next post will give you a burst of color from our loft apartment.
