Bedroom work - Construction and Demo

My dad, Nick and I worked on framing in a part of the ceiling in the master bedroom. I'm not sure what you would call it, a soffit I guess? But anyway, this new framed in area will give the ceiling some "depth" and character, as well as hold the recessed lighting. Its hard to explain exactly what it will look like, you'll just have to wait for the pics!

We did it in 4 sections, each wall 1 at a time. Unfortunately I don't have any action shots of us putting it up.

Meanwhile my mom and Jen started tearing out the plaster walls in one of the other bedrooms upstairs.

Dog Fence

I Started putting up a new fence to keep the dogs from escaping, it is really easy to install, you basically just hammer in the posts that connect the sections together and thats all there is to it!
The pile of dirt is what I've been removing from the basement, bucket by bucket, it continues to grow everyday. Where I'm piling it is a lower area that slopes down, I'm trying to make the dog area level, so once I'm done piling on the dirt I can spread some topsoil and grass seed.

Some random pics taken from around the yard...

some of the poppies are blooming.

and the violets.

On a side note, the sump crock is dug down to the proper level, just need to start digging the trenches for the drain pipe that will connect to it.
