Progress Notes

Started floor demo.

-- BenDugan - 10 Apr 2016

More floor demo last night.

Finished floor demo. Moved radiator for temporary use.

Obviously have not been keeping notes here for a while, but have made some progress.

We got the ground floor middle and front rooms repainted and put in new oak flooring. This worked really well. All the junk we took out to do this is upstairs, and still needs to be thoughtfully culled and repatriated. But right now we have a simpler, neater ground floor and Jeni and I both love it.

The 3rd floor has moved along a little, too:

  • new 3 prong receptacles with new wiring DONE
  • new light wiring
  • middle wall demo DONE
  • demo old shallow front closet DONE
  • patch and cover shallow closet openings
  • demo shallow raised closet DONE
  • patch and cover raised closet (after wiring)
  • design sliding door and wall details
  • build closet & bathroom wall
  • box over stack vent pipe in closet
  • add receptacles and lights to bathroom and closet wall
  • more...
