The entire main floor of our home came from the factory primed for painting. We painted the entire main floor Antique Buff by Valspar, (a neutral beige), with a few exceptions.
- The kitchen was painted Butter by Olympic
- One wall in Mum and Daddy’s room was painted Yacht Harbor by Behr
Also, I just wanted to extend a huge thanks to all our friends who came to help with painting. It was an enormous blessing!
Our paint! (A total of 48 gallons)
The pod hallway. The first door at the end of the hall goes into the garage, the first doorway on the right is the bathroom, the second is the laundry room, and the third (not visible in this picture), is the pantry. The door on the left will open onto the front porch. Lockers will eventually be built by Josh and Daniel onto the left-hand wall.

The hall-bath before paint.

The laundry room prior to painting. (The washer and dryer along with an upright freezer will go on the left wall and a bank of cabinets will eventually be built on the right wall for folding clothes/sewing. Also note that the boxes stacked up are the laminate flooring for the upstairs.)

Remember, the big move is this Saturday!!
After all the drywall went up we hired a mudder to finish the walls and get them ready for paint.
The boys’ room all mudded
Another view of the boys’ room (The silver pipe is the chimney pipe from our wood stove. There will be a drywalled box around it eventually.)
The boys’ bathroom drywalled and mudded (The drywall in the bathrooms was green because it is a water-resistant drywall.)
The main dormer all mudded
Getting ready to mud the girls’ room. (The black things in the window are the mudders stilts. He mudded around the top of each room first wearing his stilts to avoid the need for a ladder.)
The outside wall of the girls’ room
Another breathtaking sunset!
Each day I am awed by God’s majesty as displayed in a microcosm thru the phenomenal sunsets every evening!
