By all rights, I really should sound a little more appreciative than that, shouldn't I?
The bulk of the day today was spent putting up insulation in the living room ceiling.
We moved nearly all of the furniture out of the room and went at it. I swear we weren't into the job for more than 15 minutes when I could feel the little particles of fiberglass under the elastic of my underpants. Honest, I really could. I wore a turtleneck, jeans, denim shirt buttoned at the cuffs and collar, a respirator mask and goggles. The darn stuff still got in everywhere.
Hubby wore coveralls and didn't seem to be affected as much as I was. I think I'm just a magnet for the stuff.
We finished it all but the corner where the wood stove pipe goes up through the ceiling. The stove has to be pulled out tomorrow so we can finish.
In the ceiling just in front of the stove pipe you can see a couple of new 2 x 4s.
They are part of the framing for the heat booster fan assembly we're installing to funnel warm air from the wood stove up into Papa Pea's office. It will be the only source of heat up there but we think it will be adequate. Time will tell. (Seems I'm saying that a lot lately . . . )
More work (and progress) on the ceiling on the slate for tomorrow.
