Things happen in a hurry. We decided not to settle down for another year (?). Son Mark wants to rent the place until then, wants to start moving in Monday. The carpet still needed to be cleaned, so off to rent a shampooer (?) is that a good word?
So now the floors are cleaned, Sherry painted the deck in the wash room, it looks great. One more thing, install a vent fan light in the new bathroom.
Sherry taking down the border wall paper, what a mess she made. She and Shirl had already taken down the border that was down in the middle of the wall in the living room. They made just about as much mess there.
The room and fireplace now: We added lights on either side and a couple outlets.
This is one rats nest of electrical I had where I needed a hallway:
I will try to take on the bathroom in pictures, but you need to see it to understand exactly what I have done here.
This is the Bath I tackled: You are actually looking at the window in the other picture. I removed that window and put a door in. This frame in the foreground is closed off to become a solid wall, because you actually had to go thru one bath to get to this one (?).
That same shot as it is now:
Now this is what you see when you look from that same angle, Sherry said I want a tub/shower in there, not a half bath sooooo:
This is where I got my greatest surprise. I love neat surprises, as I tore the many layers of wall paper down I got down to the original 3/8 drywall, and lo, and behold I found this painting:
Of course I thought at first it was another layer of wall paper. I was imagining the first owners, one of them patiently painting this on the wall of the first indoor bathroom they had ever had. I loved it, but took a picture of it and hung new drywall over it.
Thanks for coming by the log.
Yeah, we decided to just enjoy this 340 sqft motor home some more instead of moving into the 1600+ of newly remodeled house. I lose Sherry in it, I can’t have that.
