That was one really, really long week. Major operations have ceased and Angie is taking care of touch up work as I type this. I have to say thanks to my parents for coming up and lending a hand and to my sister Sarah who fielded call after call about tiling.
Working with my dad for a week was… an experience. On one hand, when he said our new framing should be 60″ wall-to-wall, it was. On the other, he didn’t hesitate to clean his pipe out on my jointer even after he sang praise upon praise about its quality. At any rate, I think I picked up a few tricks throughout the project (all of which I wish I had when I started the basement) and he got a few decent tools for free, so I think we evened out a bit.
Now I have to get back on some sort of schedule and get back to a routine. Angie has been on an extremely easy rotation so my “Will” duties have been pretty non-existent the last few weeks and during the remodel I don’t think I went to bed before midnight one night. At this point though, I would be happy to just not eat fast food for a little while.
Look to the pictures for more information on the remodel, I am going to start adding comments in a minute.
Oh I also have to say thanks to my Wife for putting up with such a messy house and my generally poor attitude all week.
