Kids Bath: Framing

Now that we passed both structural/engineering (fire), a well as electrical and plumbing inspection, it is time to start framing the new tub enclosure. The photos are a little dark, as I took them at dusk, but I hope you get the idea. It will be clearer once the sheet-rock is up in the next day or two.
As part of framing, we've also sistered all the beams and most of the joists in the floor, as well as the left wall. It would appear that as bathrooms were being renovated, several cabinets have been installed in that wall, and they just kept cutting the joists, without providing additional support. Well, it's sturdy now. And sound proof.

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.
