Aaliyah's Room Update

As visible on the Project Tracker to the side, I have updated Aaliyah's Floor to 60% done. As of yesterday, I had mudded and taped the ceiling, primed and painted the walls and ceiling to match the original colors of the room. 

As of this morning I had the Square Buff Sander in and sanded the entire floor with 60 / 80 / 120 grit paper. Sanding the floor was not as painful as lugging the unit in and out of the car as well as up and down the short flight of stairs from our main level to the bedrooms.

As of this evening I was down on my knees, finish sanding the edges with my palm sander and found myself covered in a fine film of Oak sawdust. Pictures of the floor will follow when completed.

Here is the room when we started to what the walls, ceiling & floors look like without the wallpaper and the holes.

What a hard little worker you've turned out to be. Well ... not little.. but certainly a hard worker.

After you've done the house completely to your (and Lynda's) hearts desire, methinks you should start up a buisness dealing with Home Improvement.

That is the plan. What I'm doing now is gaining the experience and the expertise needed to go into other peoples houses without fear of destroying anything.

And.... I am BIG... in all the right places!!!!!!!!

...And there you go - the offer of another house that you could destroy (without fear, I might add) in your quest for perfection.
