Speckle stuff, black paper and exterior framing.....

Okay, just a quick blog.... Sorry for those visual readers, not very many pictures....  I have been getting out of work so late that the sun is set and pictures are just worthless. 

Hopefully this weekend I will drive out and have exciting photos to post!  In the meantime, you will have to try and visualize what everything looks like!

So the processes this week has been spackling up the drywall.  It turns out they do two coats of this spackle.  The first as a general cover up, and the second is really shaping the corners of walls and windows.  Last night it looks like they sprayed our walls with this white speckle spray.  I am not sure if this is primer for the paint, or texture for the walls, maybe both?  Either way a fresh coat of paint over it will do the job!

Because we are building a two story home they couldn't start stucco work until the drywall was up on both floors.  If they put the stucco on before drywall, it would get knocked off because of the vibrations.  So, the house is all prepped and wrapped with this black paper on the second floor and all of the framing on the extrior is finished for the design work in the stucco.

I am excited from here because soon we will be under lock and key!  I know I have been saying that for about two weeks now... but it is just exciting knowing that point is coming and I can finally see all my cabinets and granite-galor!
