Yeah. That title should put me in a few nerdy Google searches. 😉
Anyway…. We’ve been gone much of this week because we have an awesome boss who also happens to be even better friends. They took the whole company and all their families to Great Wolf Lodge in Kansas City and we had an awesome time!
We are quite certain this munchkin adores the water.
Cutest thing ever!
She’s also addicted to water slides of all sorts! She would tootle to the top all by herself and the look of sheer joy on her face every time she slid down was priceless!
After all… Daddy (AKA: Handsome Man) was always at the bottom to catch her and that’s just pretty cool! 😉
She did these over. and over. and over.
She was soon exhausted! Yay for wearing out the kiddos! We basically had to pry her away from the slides when it was time to leave. lol!
Anyway…. The day before we left for Great Wolf Lodge, we actually got the BEAM installed and our wall GONE!!! Whoop whoop! (Ahhhh…. Now the title makes more sense….)
Finally after all the rigamarole that getting the correct sized beams entailed, we went with Menards to get the laminated beam.
(They were the ones who gave us the smallest number for necessary beams. lol! And it still seemed like overkill. I mean really? We aren’t talking another floor above or anything… Just the roof. But I suppose overkill is better than a saggy roof, right? 🙂 )
First… Handsome Man built a temporary wall directly next to the first one. (It pretty much looks like the old one. lol!)
1 of 4 beams installed! Whoop whoop!
More of the black poodle hair insulation. So ready to be done with that stuff! Ick!
After all 4 beams were up, we installed the cross beams on the other wall. (It supports one end of the massive beams on the load bearing wall)
Then we REMOVED the wall!!! Have you ever seen anything so amazing??! The place is huge now!!!!!
After that, it’s on to finishing the wood floors… Getting closer!!!!
