Dormer Drywall Part Thirteen

A break from hearts and monsters for
 a quick peek at dormer #1.

 As you can see from the picture above, there are no icicles hanging from the eaves.  If you would have seen this same picture a year ago, it would have looked something like a three year old's nose,
 suffering from a nasty cold.  

We went shopping yesterday and found some sweet curtains. 
RITVA Curtains with tie-backs, 1 pair IKEA

Looking forward to a speedy delivery of the ceiling tiles.
 One week has passed so maybe one more week and they will be at the post office!
Decorative Ceiling Tiles, Inc. Store - Evergreen - Styrofoam Ceiling Tile - 20x20 -
The faux tin tiles will be glued right to the ceiling.

A layer of Styrofoam was used to cover the ceiling and all exterior walls which were built back in the caveman days. (pre-insulation)   This helped seal up drafts and cold that was entering into the 110 year old home through uninsulated surfaces.  Drywall was attached right over the Styrofoam.  This made for an unbelievably rigid wall!

This afternoon, a coat of paint.
  Next up, a new floor.
  She needs some work.... a lot of work! 

A crappy picture but meet the newest addition!   I haven't named her yet...
