House Update - Drywall

A lot of things were done during Christmas break over at the house.  The drywall is up and almost done.  The rooms are really starting to come together.  Jeff and I stopped by the house to check out the master closet.  I'm already thinking of a million ways to organize every single inch of that space. The problem with the closet is I have no idea where I want to put the bars that hold the clothes and where all the shoes should go.  We obviously want to maximize the space as best as possible and for me, I want lots of hanging space! This is what I have so far but I guess we'll see what the closet guy says.  Maybe he has better ideas.

This week we should also see the siding go up so at least the outside of the house will be almost done, other than the stone.  Once the drywall is done I'm assuming that's when all the fun stuff will start going in and when I'll have much more fun pictures to show.
