My cousin the contractor arrived this week. He finally got to my To-Do list. I had an extra doorway in my living room. It's bothered me since I moved in. Here is the "before" picture
That doorway to the left of the tv leads into a closet area and then the bathroom. But as you can see, you can also enter that area from the den. So Mike has dry walled it in for me. He has to come back for a little more work (mudding) and then I can prep the rest of the walls. Here it is now, with a wall
I love it and can't wait to paint. He also insulated under my eaves upstairs in the little cubby hole doors. There are 3 of these little "hobbit doors" upstairs. It should make the upstairs much warmer this winter.
But as usual, with the good comes the bad. I threw in a load of laundry tonight. Luckily I left the basement door open. After the washer started to run for a few minutes I heard water. Not the gentle sloshing of water filling a tub......the sound of water rushing......
Yup, that's soapy water all over the floor. I ran down the stairs and water was shooting out everywhere. Quickly I stopped the machine and found a hose off. After a few minutes I figured out where the hose was "supposed"to be and shoved it back in.
I managed to finish the load but I think I've just added another thing to Mike's to-do list. Now it time to dust off the hooking frame. Cheese puffs in the oven and a glass of Pinot Grigio. Happy Saturday !
