Since starting to home school Kalliope and having our third child, space has become a premium in our home.  I’m so lucky to have a handy husband, though handy is quite an understatement.  We had a 2 story entry and have decided to split it and create a loft to use as a home school classroom and therapy room for Zane.  Our friend, Jeff, came and helped Jason run the new electrical outlets and ceiling wiring and his dad helped with the flooring construction.  Here are some pictures of our progress so far.

We are going to work on mudding/taping, and sanding the drywall today.  Then all we have to do is paint, hang crown, lay flooring and install baseboard in the classroom.  I can’t wait to move in it!  We’re turning our formal dining room into our office and the old office into a spare/music room.  Should make things a little less chaotic here!
  • BTW, if you’re in the Charlotte, NC area and need work done, contact my husband, Jason, at revivedcreation@live.com.  He specializes in kitchen & bath cabinet remodelling, but can do it all!!!
