We Have A Shower!
Yay! What a great birthday present! Will and I finally have a shower installed in our house! It's quite nice, too, because we have such great water pressure. It's all nice and warm with plenty of water pressure and we can be clean in our own place without having to go elsewhere to seek showering facilities! And stuff...
Other than that, things have kinda been on hold for the last week before Christmas because there is so much to do with presents and packages to mail and such. I believe the plan is to hit it hard again after Christmas in an attempt to get done by the end of January. Let's see... what do we have left...? The biggest thing is still the garage ceiling sheet rock, followed by the remaining sheet rock to be installed in the laundry room and entryway. After that, the next fun will be taping and mudding all that sheet rock (especially the garage ceiling...) and then painting the entryway. We've got the upstairs door still to install, and all the lights in the garage and entryway and laundry room to install. There is also trim to be installed in the master bedroom, a few more pieces to be put up once the remaining cabinets are in in the kitchen, a piece in the hallway to be fixed, and a few in teh bathroom that need to be fixed. Then more trim needs to go in the entryway and some touch-up must be done on a few already installed pieces of ceiling and window trim. Closet doors and trim need to be installed, as well as the shelves in the bathroom closet, and the pantry construct must be created and installed. Hmm... what else...? A few paint touch-ups remain, as well as some small mudding and sheet rock patching spots (including the hole in the kitchen ceiling), and those will all need to be painted once they're patched. I think that's about it for what's REQUIRED, but after all that and the acquisition of the mortgage, I imagine our next project will be the construction of workbenches and storage shelves and cabinets down in the garage since we have tools to store and mechanical and woodworking projects to tackle over the years. Good god... I'd better start making a list of everything I just put in here so we can get back to scratching stuff off that is done and give ourselves hope for being done... *sigh* Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, all. Hope yours is more relaxing than mine...
