Working On The Little House In The Ozarks Day 5

Finally, some real progress.  Cory and Dustin (aka handymen) showed up today.  They were worth the wait.  They did not verbally exclaim, or run out of the house screaming when I told them everything I wanted them to do in the living/dining area. Today they removed the kerosene monster heater (going to a good home in the garage)...

removed both hideous ceiling fans (many more left); and most importantly -- they did the final ceiling coat in both of those areas.  Something is done, COMPLETED!

I kept out of their way by prepping the guest room for painting. Cleaning the walls and painting Kilz on any unsightly wall stains.  I hope it airs out before I sleep there tonight.

The heating/cooling guy showed up to give us an estimate on an upstairs split unit heater / AC.  There never has been heat or AC upstairs (hard to imagine) and we want that to be the master bedroom.  He left with a down payment, and a March installation date.

As if that wasn't enough ... the hardwood floor refinisher guy came as well.  He did not take my money, but did leave with a March completion date.  Woohoo.

 No, I am not done yet.  (Hard to handle all this excitement for someone like me, who has had oatmeal two dinners in a row.) Our neighbors (from our northern home) are in town for a basketball tournament and "camping" in the upstairs (with no heat, remember?)  Our first out of town guests!
Whew, it will be hard to top day like that.
