Duravent and Insulation

So this week flew by. While the kids visited thier Father my boyfriend and I used every evening to work on the attic. First we put up a styrofoam product called duravent. It went up easilly, but was very time consuming as it had to be stapled into the ceiling. Then on Saturday we insulated. It was very time consuming and itchy, but at the end of the day I felt more encouraged then ever about the project. The worst part of both jobs is that the attic is basically an A frame with 16 foot sloping walls. My back was very sore from contorting into a ball to staple in the materials very low at the bottom. On a very bright note it appears that I have wond the custom water color giveaway! I'm so excited to see the results!!!!!

Attic Remodel

Recently my boyfriend, of almost two years, and I have decided to take our relationship to the next level. It's pretty scary for me considering that we both went to same small town High School in Michigan, but we've spent most of our adults lives apart. I got married at 24 moved around and had two kids. He moved never married and never had children. Frankly the ex situation and the wonderful kids are my biggest fear as we undertake the next step. My house is small and the building codes in our town won't allow an addition so we have had to make the decision to remodel the attic. Writing has always been theraputic for me so I though I might try a blogg. This weekend the contractor was here to take a look at the roof so hopefully when I write next I will have more to add.
