Half done

Not to be confused with “Half Baked”. ūüôā
We’re halfway through our February project and it still continues to amaze me how quickly these months go by. It seems like we just got here, and now we’re only 8 days from moving on. Crazy.
Needless to say, we’re having a great month at this¬†beautiful camp.

We’ve enjoyed a bit of a roller coaster with the weather, but for every day that’s been in the 40’s we’ve had two in the 60’s and 70’s. ¬†And NO SNOW. ¬†I’ll share more about the camp later, but I thought this might be a good time to catch you up on our workin’ days.
The guys have been totally rehabbing a bathhouse that is located right next to where we are parked.

How’s that for a sweet commute?
This is a pretty blurry “before” picture of one side of the building

but you can see that the demolition had begun. Nevertheless, there was still plenty of tearing down to do!

And yes, that wall needs to come down too.

By mid-week, the inside was nice and clear.

From there it was on to the ceiling and the new wiring.

The ceiling was like a putting together a giant puzzle.

From there it was working on  skim coating the walls,

(Go, Jim!)
and a  little more time on the wiring and plumbing

Then they rebuilt the center wall!

See what I mean about the puzzle ceiling?

The guys made really good progress on the inside and then moved to a little outdoor project –

What do you think that’s going to be?

Meanwhile, Eula and I were working over on the conference side of the camp doing our own bit of refurbishing. Nothing quite as dramatic, mind you, but still. They needed us to paint a recently re-purposed room. What had been a supply room was now a break/lunch room. And it needed a bit of TLC.
We sharpened our skills at wall patching

and soon we were ready to paint.

By Monday morning, we were finishing up the shelves. It is a bit on the white side, but at least it’s no longer striped!

Phew, got that done!
Eula and I were oh, so, happy to turn in our paint brushes and rollers and take out our sewing machines instead! Next up – curtains! Not only is that in my skill set, it’s in my “happy dance” skill set!

Thanks for stopping by!
