MUCH ADO ABOUT THE BEAMS

Still working on those exposed beams and joists.

Outside, our coeur de boeuf  tomatoes were ripe and ready.

We finally decided how we’ll treat our exposed ceiling beams. For the bedrooms we’ll be drywalling over the joists to provide for extra insulation, but on the main floor we’ll leave the joists apparent and plaster in between the spaces. The prep work is really time-consuming. Hundreds of nails to be taken out and each main support beam is being scrubbed with a metal brush to best expose the natural grain of the wood. So. Long.

    what a painstaking work but, in the end, it will pay off.
    so keep up the good work and it will be fruitful like your tomatoes, producing wonderful fruits!
