Well, I've been so busy with home renovations, that I really haven't had time for anything else.

About 2 months ago, we called in a roofing company to come and fix 3 of our roofs that were leaking, and they advised us that we should also fix the chimney as well. We decided that we might as well fix all the shingles on the house as well. And that we want to do siding on the sides of the front of our home.
The only problem with attaching the siding, was that the wall where the siding was to be attached had a huge amount of water damage (we found that out once we started breaking down the bottom portion of the wall). So we talked to the roofing company and decided that they would just break all the walls down, and reframe the front room of our home (the sunroom).

Well, it's been non-stop since then. One contractor would come to do the roofs. Then a couple days later another contractor came to do the framing, then a couple days later someone came and did the chimney, then someone came and did the shingles, then someone else came and did the siding and the soffits....

Now, all the work is done, except for a few minor touch ups that need to be addressed with the roofing company (ie: looking at the ceiling/wall in the sunroom, I can see sunlight! Hello, there should be NO outside light in my ceiling!!! This means there's a hole somewhere!). So far, they've sent someone back twice to address this issue. Both times the person said they fixed it, yet it's still there!

So anyway, this past week, my husband and our brother-in-law put in the drywall for the floor in the sunroom, and on Saturday, they are planning on putting in the drywall for the walls and the ceiling.... but we NEED this "hole in the ceiling" addressed first!!!

(Oh, we also had an electrician come in to rewire the sunroom and remove some old wiring!)

This image is when the walls and ceiling were torn down. The only thing left was the two corner beams, and the centre beam (and the roof that they had just fixed).

This image is when the walls were framed. The black is an insulation.

And this is all the siding finished!

Now, we are just waiting on the window people to come by (next week) to measure and make us 2 windows.
