Framing the Catheral Ceiling

It's amazing how far you can come in three days. Of course, when renovating, it never does seem fast enough! I'm thankful we did take New Years Eve off and spent time with some dear friends welcoming in the new year. An awesome potluck and fun games really made for a nice break. I hope we won't spend the ENTIRE year renovating though as this is how we've spent the first day of the new year.

I hope you're not entirely sick of seeing construction photos here. I promise, the wiring and heating etc. will start soon and there won't be any great progress shots then. Hubby will also be back to work on Monday so that will put a damper on things as well. I'm praying that the insulation will be back in before then. You should see the weather we're finally getting. It is cold and snowy. Beautiful to look at out the window but I don't want to even think about how much heat we're losing through that roof right now.

Here's a few details from Thursday and Friday...

almost finished removing the old trusses

the weather outside is frightful...and baby it'd cold INSIDE

my 19 yo finally decided to wake up and help bring insulation from the shop

framed ceiling pretty much complete

Today I'm excited that the insulation is going back into the ceiling. Should be a little easier working conditions and also on my heating bill. After that, hubby starts wiring.

Meanwhile, I'm off to get a turkey in the oven. There's a huge one in my fridge and I think they deserve a treat.

Have a beautiful day!



  1. WOW! Your wonderful hubby works fast! I can't wait to see it finished.

  2. Oh Julia, I'm not tired of looking at the construction photos at all! I'm excited to see the process as it's completed piece by piece. Your kids are such cute helpers.

  3. Hi Julia,
    Your hubby is quite talented. This room will look lovely when its all finished. Those two little guys on the inspection team are too cute! TFS! Sheila
