Your Old House Workshops - Part II: Interior - Canceled

Unfortunately, the weather didn't really cooperate, and the workshop is canceled. Which is a good thing, since we still didn't have our driveway cleaned.

Just to remind you, we finally found a truck with a snowplow, and struck a deal. He is to come whenever there is some serious accumulation of snow. We went outside and talked to some neighbors who were cleaning. One of them had an interesting comment: You have to be patient with them. I wasn't sure what he meant until this afternoon. We're a little more than 30 hours into the storm, and he is still not here. Patience.

We found the "missing" house

Thanks to one of our readers, Robert, who identified the house on South Mountain Avenue.

I almost crashed into a tree while looking at it and can't believe I never noticed it before. It was right there. I mean, it looks exactly the same as in this photo. Right?

The funny thing is that I drive by the house almost daily. Which goes to show you just how many things go unnoticed in our lives...

And here is the photo of the porch.

Kids Bath: Electrical - DONE

Electrical - DONE, TOO! Yay!

However, he opened a hole in the wall in the wrong place above the mirror, so now that needs to be patched up tomorrow. That means an extra day tacked on. We really wanted it to be finished tomorrow. We are already 4 days over schedule. Ugh.

I. Need. This. Job. To. End.
