I was, and am, determined to do as much of this myself as I can. So, I have to make mine look at least as good.
I have my work cut out for me.
That's a carpenter's joke.
|There we are, starting to take shape.|
There was still a problem though.
|Can you see the problem class?|
|Don't forget to remove the old linoleum. It too went all the way under the wall.|
But, eventually, I was able to remove all the rotted subfloor and I put pieces of plywood in place to hole everything until I was able to get a larger, continuous pieced cut and placed.
|Looks almost like I meant to do it that way.|
One of my bestest nursing friends came to town with a birthday lunch for Sarah. She has kids about our kids age and we all skipped work to go to the local swimming hole after lunch.
It was made from an old rock quarry.
|Neat old sandstone quarry.|
|It is spring fed, apparently. And beautifully too.|
She didn't kill me for flooding the house. Those are all the swimming pictures you're gonna get.
Then, it was back to the house for an hour or so until the kids Jiu Jitsu class. I managed to sneak in a little more work on the house.
I think it's shaping up.
|That, my friends, is an improvement.|
Then, it was off to kid's martial arts class.
Belt testing is coming soon. Exciting times.
On the way home, we noticed the sunset was going to be a good one so we stopped at our favorite viewpoint.
Then working on the weekend.
