Thanks @Baymule .... I will take the sympathy:lol:..... but you might want to save a little for @Bruce as I think they got some of the left overs from this up there.... And they are probably colder....

Oh gee whiz... you didn't want an easy "out" to go outside right there in your room???? Did you put in the window also? Looks to be a nice sunny day coming up there...

Is Robert taking care of the animals at your old farm? Is he still unhappy at your moving? I am sure after all these years it will be hard for him to lose you as a neighbor.... life changes, not in the ways we ever think it will...

Hope you get alot done today.

Can't wait to see it with drywall puttied and painted.

I thought you wanted to out down the plank style wood look vinyl instead of square tiles.
There was only one style that had enough boxes of tiles to do that room. The rest were a few boxes, broken boxes…. I got what they had.

@farmerjan yes, Robert and Sharon will miss me and I’ll miss them. They are wonderful neighbors. Yes, he is feeding the animals while I’m gone. We didn’t put in the 3 windows. Another previous workman did. None of them are at the same measurements from the floor. Up down up. Idiot.

No idea why the hole in the wall. There was no sign that there ever was a door there.

I think I got hit by a truck, then it backed up to see what it hit. I’m exhausted, sore, tired, even my feel good hurts. I was rolling the ceiling by 6 this morning with Kilz. About 2:30 I was cutting in the walls at the ceiling , but I cut in the ceiling with gray paint too. Fortunately not much before I realized what I was doing. I knew it was time to quit. I’ll just have to put a little extra white paint over that gray.

@Ridgetop i found the trim! Since I was so tired that I was making stupid mistakes, I went to Lufkin and found the exact same trim! I got 15 pieces 7’ long. They got plenty more. Got a ceiling fan for that room too. I had painted the brick wall, it looks good. Maybe in the morning I can roll white paint on the ceiling.

Sky is getting dark, going to rain.

Made more progress today. It’s clear that we won’t lay tile tomorrow. I’ll have to come back Monday. Had to go to Lufkin (30 miles) this evening to get another gallon of gray paint. So I did the drive through at Pop Eyes Fried Chicken and got 2 pieces, a biscuit and cole slaw. Never had their cole slaw before, one bite and I threw it away. Yuck. Chicken was good.

I painted the ceiling this morning. Found a sagging piece of sheetrock on the ceiling. Chris said it’s been wet and he’ll cut it out tomorrow and replace it. Probably from a long ago leak. House has a nice metal roof on it now. Chris sanded on the patches and painted the walls. I painted trim, the 2 closet doors and the bedroom door.

I can still remember Popeyes chicken having great biscuits.... but I don't think I ever had their coleslaw
