If I never see another sanding block...

Last reno post showed the mudding. Since then, I've sanded and primed. And painted. I'll be happy if there are no more rooms here that require full drywall replacement. The lights are in and working. I think Rory believes that we are engaging in all this effort just for him. He's more than used to laying on the couch now (completely covered with sheets which originally were to protect it from dust and paint, but are now serving double duty as protection from dog hair and drool). Even when I was painting the ceiling and hoiking the couch around out of the way, he'd stay on it. Dust flying, tools going, doesn't seem to bother him. I'd worry he was deaf, but he can hear the fridge open no matter where he is.

Hub room - west. You can see Norm's work in the cables for speaker and satellite for wall mounted TV.
Hub room - north. Doors out to the foyer (gosh I LOVE that word!)

Hub room - east. Door to the basement. And "Rory's" couch.

Hub room - east. Alcove by the window. The hole in the ceiling is for speaker 1 of 3.

Hub room - south and west. Doors out to the laundry, kitchen, garage and back door

Rory...wondering when we're going to get to the floor!

Tigerwood (not to be confused with Tiger Woods) 3/4" hardwood. Box 1 of 36. Should be enough for the entire main floor except the kitchen and back entrance.

All you have to do now is imagine all of those walls with bookcases, except where the TV is. Oh, and new sets of glass French doors by two. But first, stay tuned...floor leveling and hardwood installation, aiming for finish by Sunday. But we all know how that works.

But you never told the story about 9 holes for pot lights but only 8 fixtures and Rona no longer carries the fixture line....
