about the renovation of our new north Portland Church into our future home!

So the sheetrockers we chose for this enormous job were stoked… 18 ft ceilings requiring scaffolding and lots of uneven edges and odd little nooks and crannies.  They estimated it to take a few days, to start last Tuesday… but when i returned from my Mexico vacation yesterday i assumed I’d stop in to find it completed, but to no avail. The mudding and taping has not even begun, and its already taken a full week.  What a huge job!  It set others back as well.. I’d lined up a tiler to do the mud-set shower pan, but he’s been postponed until later on this week… and the roll up door can’t go in until the sheetrockers are done. Thankfully, we are able to borrow the scaffolding for painting the interior this month.. which I plan on tackling myself.  I called Metro and they have 79 gallons of our recycled exterior chocolate brown in the ready … but we won’t be able to deal with that until the siding goes up… hopefully  soon.

Things are moving at a snails pace relative to how fast i would like them to.. but all good things come to those who wait… Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither is the Church of Tam, i suppose 😉
