The pre-drywall phase is taking longer than I had hoped but I always hope too much. We’ve still got another weekend of work but it’s definitely looking good.
We have the durock backerboard up for the shower.
The plumbing supply is 99% done with just a bit of clean-up left. Â The 3rd floor floor is down.
The big things left are replacing a window, framing in the “microwave closet” and pulling a couple wires in the kitchenÂ ceiling
and Â a whole lot of cleaning:
To get us started on the clean-up phase, we got one of those bagsters. Â It was the least-complicated way to get rid of everything. Â It’s pricey at $39 for the bag and another $160 to have it picked up but you pay for convenience.
I spent a bunch of time hauling piles of trash in the backyard into the bagster since we are finally snow-free!
It’s the “little” things that are killing us right now. Â The final bits of tacking up wire, stripping wire, tacking up wood here and there, put the last light box up, pull an extra ethernet etc. Â We have a list 50 lines long of little things we need to do. Â Not very satisfying and not very blog-worthy.
