More floor/ceiling

Call us dorky for having an arctic entry carved into the cathedral-ceilinged living room, but you've got to admit it's kind of cool from above. 

See before:

And then today:
January 22, 2011

The last picture is taken from farther back, so it looks a little different, but if you look closely you'll see that we're only a few boards from the upstairs flooring being complete!   And, although we didn't plan it for that purpose, you can totally walk out onto the artic entry and look out the second-story window at the lake.  My FIL wants to put a chair out there.  Now we'll have to put a railling up so I don't tumble off of it (because you know I will).

The Husband says we'll be able to put a board across all the joists and get to the other windows to clean them.  Firstly, I hope by "we" he means him, and secondly, what about the state of our windows now that we don't have to exert ourselves to clean makes him think that windows that far up will EVER get cleaned?   Yeah, no.

Not that I'm saying our house is filthy or anything, just that our house is filthy.  Well, okay -- maybe not filthy.  How's horrendously dusty and cobwebby?   Messy?  Carpet needing shampooing?  Hello? *tap tap* Is this thing on?  

Back to logs.   I hope when I told you to say goodbye to the floor joists, you listened.  Because these beauties: ALL covered up!
