The drywall went up late last week at the Taj, so we're priming walls and ceilings and hoping to get everything primed and at least the master bath painted before we leave this trip. The tile guy is coming Wednesday or Thursday of next week, so once he's done, the Sainted Singing Plumber can set the toilet and vanity. Since those are tight fits, we'll need to paint behind the toilet and behind/beside the vanity before they're installed.
Because all the walls had these crazy little cracks in the painted surface and a few legitimate plaster cracks, I've spent the last 4 months patching and sanding the other rooms, as well. It is an on-going process, and extremely unpleasant:
Tank's bedroom, ready to sand.
So far, we have primed the master bathroom and Tank's bedroom and begun the sanding process in the living room, hallway and master bedroom. More patching needs to happen on the master bedroom ceiling and then the sanding needs to be finished before we can prime everything. I am beginning to think this is far beyond a two-man, three-day job! We'll just have to do what we can and it may end up that we spend Christmas at Uncle Todd's Cabin once again and move to the Taj in the new year. Sighhhhhhhhhhhh.
