sheetrock is done, well done

Closet building, usually an afterthought in room design, has become a major focus of this room I am working on. The room changed purposes from a gallery/ display area, to a Master bedroom, and the rest of the house had one small closet, so - it was up to me, construction "Wizard of Ahhhs", to make a beautiful closet duet on either side of the west facing window. They will be like two towers (extra tall) with a high shelf connecting them over the window. The outside will be western red cedar, the inside (boring, cheap) drywall with my special "splatter" texture, with pine shelves and double poles for hanging all sorts of clothes, I suppose. I am having more fun, getting more satisfaction, and making more $ per day making this closet that I did in the framing stage of the project. I started just a month ago, and it is almost ready for pictures. My greatest joy is having a willing helper, Gary, who kicks butt every day, six days if needed, and never complains.

"Oh, no
Another Saturday night and I ain't got nobody
I've got some money 'cause I just got paid
Now, how I wish I had someone to talk to
I'm in an awful way "
