When we bought this house, 4 years ago (I know! I can't believe it's already been 4 years!), there was one thing I really wanted to change.
The skylight in our entry. Specifically the shaft because it was lined with plywood (instead of drywall) and when it was painted the grain rose and looked really bad.
J said he would fix it. No problem.
Well, it's been four years. The skylight itself has been replaced (we had that done when the roof was replaced in 2007), but the shabby-shaft remained.
But now it. is. gone.
There is a giant hole in the ceiling, because no project is ever as easy at it seems, but there is progress.
And it makes me happy.
