In which the Hittys move it

Our roombox was finished with a nice Early American stained wooden floor.  We moved our furniture off the shelf and into the roombox.  It was tricky fitting everything in.  We managed to acquire a Rement table for next to the wing chair.  It holds our sewing things nicely.  We have already decided that we are going to need more room, but this will be a nice home until we can invest in new real estate.

In which we begin construction

The Chesapeake Bay Hittys have been residing on the shelf of a bookcase in their companion's bedroom for the past year or two. They have petitioned for a building permit in a more central place in the household, namely, on the top of the upright piano in the living room (which gets more activity than the family room at this backwards residence). So, the construction of a roombox began on Labor Day weekend. It seems fitting that their companion should be enlisted to work for them on a weekend that celebrates labor. The constuction materials were already on-site, except for a few more pieces of foamcore board and some posterboard. Once the floors are installed, the roombox will be ready for inspection for an occupancy permit. Here are a few pictures of the progress achieved this weekend.
