Another Rejuvinated Light Fixture
This one goes above the Dining Room table, if all goes well.

Soooo much sanding. The endgrain is tough, and it takes hours to wear it down just a little.
Zone out with headphones on and sand, sand, sand.

It Finally Happened

Here are the wardrobes in the newly carpeted closet. Starting to feel almost inhabitable.
Here Lisa goes into production mode on the drawer assembly.

Carpeting is now installed!
We used a meter square carpet tile by Milliken, called Linen.
Installation was almost entirely by Lisa, whose knees are a-feelin' it now. I followed behind with baseboard trim (not shown).

Next, a wood cap, and some touch-up paint completes the installation.

What you are viewing is a whole lot of end grain fir being glued down to a plywood substrate. The buckets and random chunks of concrete are to press them into place while the adhesive dries.
Then...hours of sanding, and an edge strip.

Guest Bath Progress
The toilet / tub room is complete. Well, except for the toilet paper roll holder and shower curtain.
This was the interior door that was delivered with broken glass. Got the replacement, and got it painted and installed finally.
Drilled the tile (scary) and mounted the shower bar.

|Corner trim in progress. One panel and receiver added on the right side. Insulation shown beside it. On the left side the nailer has been added over the waterproofing..|
A series of aluminum extrusions are fit together so that the various window are joined together visually.

The subcontractor was scheduled for 2 1/2 months ago, but only now has arrived, despite constant attempts on our part to get them here. A source of major stress and consternation.
|Lisa and the cat inspect the formwork.|

Master Bath Shower
It took a real good bit of fussing, plus some extra adapters from both the manufacturer and the hardware store, but we got our British shower fixture to work.

Master Bath Mirror
Got the large mirror installed in the Master Bathroom.
Super tight clearances getting it into the room, but it made it.
The room suddenly feels so much larger, and the natural light from the skylight fills the room.

Breakfast Nook Seating Mockup
Got the back angle dialed in, and tested table overlap and seat-to-table heights.

Post Posting Post
Took one full day, with energetic help from friend Bryan, to remove 80' of chainlink fence and posts. Broke a heavy duty webbing strap and a nylon rope trying to pull the old posts. A lot of grunting labor.
Today Lisa and I got the post holes finished, and set the new steel posts in concrete.
Put the old fence on Craigslist, and managed the swarm of sketchy metal scrappers who descended.
Tomorrow the wood infill begins.

Heavy Metal Bath
It wraps up the wall and forms a backsplash and small shelf for the mirror to sit upon.
The cutout is for the undermount sink, and a hole for the faucet.
Now we just have to decide what to finish this with - we are considering a color in this location.
Behind it, you can see steel bars awaiting their turn to get cut and welded for the kitchen.

Steel Wall Surface in Kitchen
A steel surface beside the door in the kitchen; a place for magnets or chalk notes and doodles.
The wood is temporary bracing to hold it flat while the mastic dries.
Can't wait to replace the door with the glass and fir door.
Oh yeah - I'll have to wait.

The first of the mirrors got installed today - downstairs bathroom.
And look - the glass shower door is now in place (3 days later from previous post)
