The family visit was great! We didn't get the room cordoned off downstairs or loft or the bunk room completed as planned, but it didn't matter anyway. :) Everyone just basically camped out on the mattresses we'd bought, so everyone was comfy...well, except for hubby! LOL He gave up his side of the bed to my sister and slept on a fold-up roll-away bed downstairs with 3 of the dogs. My Hoodoo slept on the bed between my sister and I because he would not have cooperated downstairs.
Here is the family picture we took on the church steps. I had sooo wanted our Dad here as well so he could be sitting on the top step, but that just wasn't to be. But we did get everyone else. Yaaay! :)
My AWESOME family!

So, now to show the progress we have up to that point. We haven't done anything since as hubby is working to get the shop ready for "opening day", which is this Wednesday (10/15).
This is looking from what will later be the end of the wall over toward the door to the stairway to the basement (and future apartment). The desk will go to the shop and that area will be enclosed. It will still be where the computer is, but it will be turned to the right with bookshelves to the left. There will be a divider wall between the desk area and the laundry closet.
Since these pictures were taken we have finally gotten curtains up on the big windows, and while our power bill has always been much lower than expected, the curtains have improved it by another 30%! It's not bad when you can heat & cool a 1200 square foot house for less than $100 a month!
Before the sink was put in and the toilet but back in place. Looks kind of "odd" right now, but when it's completed it will be sooo cool!
So that's what we've gotten done so far. We're about to get moving on it some more very soon, so I will share more at that time.
Until then, blessings to you and yours in the coming holiday season!
