Been a while since we have been here. Shifted gears today and started drywalling the very neglected caboose. Now that the Depot is the sleeping area and living room I decided to repurpose the front of the caboose to the office. With AT&T scheduled after the 1st of June I needed to get the walls ready and my new $20.00 cherry desk in place. I have the new custom built computer ready to install and will have a nice 32" flat screen for the monitor. I hated biting the bullet on TV cable and internet service but what the hey you can't stay in the 20th century forever. If I can shovel out the mess I might even add some pics. :pictures:

Still a little rough but the drywall is up and the office is in place. Got stood up by the AT&T internet installer :x

The threat of having them show up got myself and a helper in high gear to get the drywall done and to give the caboose a heavy duty clean up :D

The caboose bath area just might get a fancy ceramic wood look floor .....


It seems my buddy has about 4 crates of cement clapboard and about 400 sq ft of ceramic wood look flooring. He gathers for a mission but these donations are just too heavy and specific to be of value where he is directed to take the random donations. They are meant for the poor and yes I guess I qualify so I took a moment to thank the man above and intend to get my butt over there and gather my gifts.

Hard to believe it is ceramic planking ..... Image

Thanks Mark : I haven't even gotten it cleaned up in that picture. It was out in the wet and snow when I got it and the dividing white foam had bled off onto it a bit. I would have better pics but the weather kinda closed in on us so cleaning was put on the back burner ...
