Construction over here

Remember how I mentioned we were refinishing a room on our lower level?  Here's a pic of the room after we did the demo:


 Our contractors from CarrMichael Construction came over & are in the midst of drywalling the walls & ceiling:


Originally we'd planned to use the small room as an additional office space for me & my assistant Meghan, but two days ago I decided we were better off taking the bigger room (the guest room) for work and using the smaller room as the new guest room.  Here's a shot of our complete mess-of-a-future-office:


Nothing you see is really staying... not even the curtains.  I haven't decided where I want to go in either of these rooms yet because the project came on so suddenly, but as soon as I have design plans, I'll be sure to share.  {shoemakers' kids with no shoes syndrome here} 

Also, the guys are reducing the closet in the boys' room so we can fit two twin beds in there.  Again, I'm pretty undecided on what I to do but I think I'm going to have headboards made in one of my new fabrics. 

xoxo, Lauren

Don't you just love how those guys can stand on those stilts like they're nothing? I can't wait to see what you end up doing but reducing a closet size...really?

I was complete confused on why your last two posts had titles of: "Please update the Flash movie to version 436" until I realized it was telling me to update my software. :)
