Hello everyone and welcome to my blog! Here in Texas the weather has been wonderful! Even though we are still in self isolation we are making the best of our time here at home. We’ve been eating our meals out on the porch more often, listening to music and reading more. Maybe this is a blessing in disguise, it’s nice not to rush around and have to be somewhere. Then again, I do like having a work schedule! Ha-ha! What can we do? I think for me, I just have to be patient and have faith that we will be alright. 🙂
Let’s talk about the guest house! Last month I posted how we installed the ceiling go here to read. Today I’m posting about the walls and the AC. It took three days for this DIY project.
First Day: Insulation & Sheetrock were installed with the help from a good friend of Dale’s.
Gary and Dale carrying the Sheetrock inside the building to be installed.
The most time consuming was cutting out the squares for the electrical plugs on the Sheetrock.
As you can see, quite a few outlets.
The right side is finished.

Insulation and Sheetrock were also installed to the front and back of the upper peak wall.
Second Day: Dale framed an area where the AC would be installed. My granddaughter Brenda was here to help him with this project.

Third Day: Dale finished installing the wall insulation to the front and back of the building and I helped him with the Sheetrock.
The construction stage finished!
We were so happy to be done with the construction stage of this building!! Dale and I were grateful to have some extra hands to help us finish. Much more to do to complete the guest house. So be sure to check back!
I would like to end this post with a picture, taken last year at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center in Austin, Texas.
As we were entering the wildflower center this beautiful owl was nesting above the entry to the center. The owl did not seem to mind everyone stopping to look at her. I believe she liked the attention!
Until next time, Elizabeth
