Our Biggest Mess: Dad’s Week Before and After Pictures

In honor of my dad’s work, here are some before and after pictures from this week. The left is the house when he got here and the right is how he left it – not too shabby for 8 working days! We got wiring finished, insulation in, and drywall up, not to mention all of the mud and tape he put up. I’m only a sanding away from primer! Thanks, Dad!
And here is an overview of the whole project if you are interested!
Let the big window be your guide. The living room:
