Of Siding and Dry Wall

Siding-in-FrontThe siding on the new store building was finished in February. As you all know, there was a number of days the crew couldn’t work outside due to the extreme cold, but they got it done!

I’m so glad Ray put the first coat of paint on the siding before it went up. It still needs another coat of paint, but even with just one coat it makes it look closer to being finished.

While the outside is starting to look complete, there is still a lot of work to do inside the store. Ray’s been working hard on all the dry wall work. First putting it up, and then mudding and taping and mudding and taping, three coats and then it will be ready for sanding. Ray hates sanding.

Dry-Wall-in-StoreHere’s a couple pictures of the dry wall going into place in the new store. The first photo is of the left side of the store if you are standing at the front door. This is where the dog food section will be. The opening at the back is for the storage room.

The second picture was taken from the front right corner of the store. In this view you can see the register area that will be under the stairs that go up to the upper level.

    Oh My You both are working so hard. It looks MAHVELOUS DAHLING

  2. Dana – it is looking so good! Obvious progress being made! I really like the exterior colors you have chosen. I can’t say why but they are very appealing. Poor Ray! Looks like a LOT of sanding coming up, but what a great job he is doing.

  3. Big changes over the winter! I love seeing the progressive photos. The inside looks so spacious and light filled. The outside is so attractive! You both should be proud of how much you’ve accomplished over the winter.
