Hallway - very slow....

Good Morning!!

I had to pause my works around the house...

I was extremely busy....  Had 2 garage sales, granddaughter's birthday party, and also, I had to watch my grand daughter while her parents work.  I didn't want to do anything with tools when my little girl is around.  I have to pause it for while.

I've been working on I L Y so that way, I can sell it to earn money for home fund.

This one is my 2nd ones.  

Now, my hall way.  
It is not finished.  I need to order window, get some drywalls for the ceiling and walls.  Also, I need to get me 2 nice lights and 3 ways switch.  Hopefully, I will finish next month or early of August.  

What I had done in previous weeks ago.  It's awful and lots of works.  

 Near the back of the door. 
I had to rip everything out what's rotten.  I added studs and then added OSB wood on top.  
Lots of screws!! 
Looks so MUCH better ! 

2nd "hole"
The wall was peeling real bad because of water coming in from the window.  There was a vent that it was useless.  I ripped it off and added studs and OSB wood.  
It was awkward because it was the middle of the hallway. 

3rd "Hole"
Near front door.  The floor was rotten - of course from the rain or leak from the front door. 
Ugh. I repeated it.. 

 I was afraid that my little grand-kids feet would go thur the hole.  It scares me, big time! 

Finally, I covered it up with OSB wood.  Will put carpet in the future.  

I will have to remove ceiling panels ( started to dip ), both sides of the walls.  Will put fiberglass insulation for ceiling, will have to add new window, and drywalls.  I can't wait to finish it before Early of August.   

Me working on bedroom's floor.  It was so HOT!! :)

Back to my grand daughter!  Have a great week!  Xo..

Wow you have done so much already!!! We just finished remodeling a mobile home and used sheet rock all over, covered the paneling...and then we did pergo on the looks so amazing. Going through it all we thought it would never get done but it did and the reward is GREAT! The lady that is living there is so dear to us and she just loves it. Keep on working, the reward will be great and your home will be awesome. I have to hand it to you doing all the work! Good for you!!! Keep us posted, I am enjoying your blog. Have fun with your Grand daughter!
