    Just look on the bright side. That'll give you someplace to hang your hammer.

    OK, papadave. We finally made more progress on the ceiling. I got both layers of insulation in the past weeks and a half, and got the vapor barrier up tonight along with a good start on the tongue and groove. Sadly, I'm going to be short on wood (never had that problem before!), so I'll have.to get some more on Saturday morning . Some more pics......

    Good work brother

    I've been a framing contractor for 22 yrs and done a lot of GC work over the past 10 yrs and I feel your pain with it taking 6yrs.
    I build everyone elses dream house and my house is the last one to get touched. I have projects half finished for years.
    Like they say the shoemakers kids have no shoes.
    Keep plugging away.

    Thanks Mike! You're right, our stuff is always last to get done. Well I've been promising her this would get finished and I want to keep that promise, so I'm burning the midnight wood (I refuse to use oil!) and staying with it til I get it finished. I probably won't get all he trim and details done before Christmas, but it'll be close and at least useable by then.

    I'll keep pics of the progress coming.

    What happened to the turkey day deadline?:mad: hehehe
    Man, nice job. I've seen a lot of rough construction, but you obviously care about what you're doing.

    You're getting older,....it happens.;lol I'm laughing WITH you, blah, blah, blah.:cool:
    I was wondering when I'd see some pics, since you've been sidetracked so much recently.
    I don't hate much, but insulation would have to rank right up there.

    Make sure you scare the crap out of them first, sell the pizza on the way out the back door. They'll be hungrier that way!

    You're looking at it all wrong. As long as it's not finished, she CAN'T kill you.

    That's what's kept me alive the past 6 years, btuser...........kinda like a "stay of execution, if you will.....==c;)

    We knew this project (huge addition and total remodel) would take 6 to 7 years, and we're right on par with that goal. With a full time job (and part-time tree removal work) I do the work when I can. Thanks to being sidetracked with hidden obstacles in our project and helping friends and relatives with THEIR projects (going up to my buddy's place this morning to do a woodstove/class A pipe install) and even burnout.....sometimes you have to walk away for a while, too.

    I've been promising her that this would be done by Christmas....

    Just haven't said which Christmas........;)

    I've worn that one out, IP! You should see the look she gives me when she hears a chainsaw fire up in the backyard. Not good......

    Boy, if looks could kill!

    The biggest part of the ceiling is done, we'll be finishing up the rest of it tonight. Then I'll get a measurement on for the millwork pieces that will go in the peak of both ceilings tonight when we finish up, and order them for Saturday. Starting to look like something in there!!
