Today you are going to see a lot of nice, clean walls, so I'll add a couple of before shots to remind you of how things used to look.
The family room was finished with wood paneling (ew) with an absurd ceiling.
Both the ceiling and walls were gone right over with board and skim coat. Ne need to remove the existing finish.
The door between the utility area and the family room is in too.
Here's a photo of how the kitchen wet wall looked last week.
Same wall this week. Starting to look like a house again.
I'm standing in the front door here. The little half wall between the living room and the kitchen will afford more options for arranging furniture in the living room but still gives an open feeling. The kitchen is on the other side of the wall.
Same wall as viewed from the kitchen. You can also see the expanded entry into the family room on the right.
Outside, Helper Bob was taking advantage of the warmer temps to paint the trim. More white. White everywhere. People want to buy white.
That's James the Plasterer providing some supervision to Helper Bob.
Meanwhile, back at our estate, the exterior shutters have their first coat of paint. Green. Safe color. Sigh.
Helper Bob and I got to talking about dogs (again). He'd never heard about dog freestyle (dog dancing), so, Helper Bob, if you are reading this, here is the most famous dog dancing duo of all time for your enjoyment (no, not me and Mango or Dexter, but close).
