Halfway (?) There


“My” bath, Nov. 12, 2016

The last of the Great Bathroom Tearout of 2016 will happen in 2017: cutting and framing  the door from the bathroom to my bedroom (see tape below). That’ll come when I’m almost done putting things back to rights (so maybe 2018), in a likely futile effort to keep the dust out of my sheets.

While there’s still a lot to do, I’m not displeased with how far things have come.

The plumbing for both baths is roughed in, and the electrician stopped by today to go over the wiring plan. On Monday, he’ll be back bright and early to give me a fishing lesson (and do most of the work, while I do only as directed).


“My” bath, Dec. 31, 2016.

I hope by next weekend to be nailing floorboards back down and choosing the floor finish for the pine flooring in the guest bathroom. There are fewer decisions to make in there (and less money that still needs spending to make them), so it will be done first.


Guest Bath, August 2016 (it used to be a kitchen…obviously)


Guest Bath, Dec. 31. 2016

I’ll be relieved when a midnight trip to the bathroom doesn’t include negotiating the stairs. (Because yep – those stairs are still dangerous!)

    At least you can see (and share) the results of your hard work. These rooms are going to be great. They already look better! And you keep an admirably tidy worksite.

    Happy New Year! 2017 will be better. At least that’s what I keep telling myself. 18 yr old scotch helps too. Cheers, Fitz. Looking good.
