This last weekend, Dean, Matt and Melanie came into town to visit. Melanie rolled in for her first triathlon, which (I'm happy to say) was a success! Congratulations!
Well, we didn't get a chance to get the floors down before everyone came into town but, they had beds to sleep in and a working shower and toilet. However, since the door to the bathroom did not have the second coat of paint on it, I left it in the closet and opted for a curtain across the doorway. The lack of privacy forced Dean to head to McDonald's across the street for his 9:00 "meeting". Sorry guys, it will be much better next time around.
On Sunday afternoon, my sister Amy moved in. I figured she would continue working for the next week or so but, she was apparently as fed up with Houston as I was towards the end. (Note: I was fed up with the humidity and distance from my other friends and family in Austin and Dallas, not with my friends who currently live there.)
So, this week we're planning on buying the slate and laying down the floors. Hopefully we'll be able to call the upstairs "done" in the next three weeks or so. This won't include many "bonus projects" like installing the new closet, or putting in a built in shelving unit between the closet and the door.
