(Sep 29) Ceiling Almost Done

Came out with Sabrina and Kim this weekend. We finished securing the sheetrock that we threw up last week. Sabrina also helped me with some wiring as we changed out some 2 gang outlets for 4 and added a couple of outlets with USB adapters built in for the living room. We had a great meal of pancakes and fresh strawberries on Sunday morning. Sabrina took a couple of nice long walks and enjoyed sleeping in a bit. She was anxious to get to bed on Saturday night so the she "could fall asleep before we started snoring!" :)  Some of the wiring we worked on Sunday was shorting and we couldn't keep the generator running until we isolated that it was the kitchen that was overloading it. I was really glad that it wasn't the generator itself as it has been flawless so far. We ended up putting the isolation box over it most of the weekend and it made a big difference in the noise pollution. I took the HVAC blower we had and set it right in front of the opening at one side. It was blowing a gale force wind into the box and tons of exhaust air right back out the other side. We decided we would build a bigger box that was completely enclosed and thicker on sound proofing. The trick is getting enough ventilation that it can get fresh air and not overheat. I really liked a video I saw of a nearly silent box that a guy built for his. I'll see if I can find it again and post a link. We headed back at noon on Sunday so that we could get some housework done and rest a bit. Sabrina also hoped to see Triston but that didn't work out. I was very sad to drop her off at her mother's as we hadn't seen her all week but still thankful she spent the time with us.  All in all it was a really good weekend.

Kitchen fixtures in and wired. 

Also got some the rest of the shower walls installed. Great to have a functional shower finally!
