Work we didnt' do...

A couple things were accomplished today that we can take no credit for. First, the multiple layers of plywood in the kitchen were torn up, the basement joists braced (in addition to Eric's awesome sistering job) and new 3/4" plywood put down to prepare for eventual tiling (which we will do). Larry and Felix made quick work of that this afternoon. My favorite part was that they tore up the 8" of random brick left in the floor from where the wall dividing the house used to be and laid the new plywood almost flush with the dining room hardwood. That gave us an easy answer of how to bridge the otherwise awkward transition between the rooms. Now it's going to be tiled right up to the next room and we'll put in a threshold between the two! Justen returned and dug the first of the (five) holes in which to pour the cement for the porch pillars. He found a lot of rock down there. Sorry Justen! But that project is moving along too...as long as we can get the weather to cooperate. Eric didn't feel too swell so he stayed home tonight, but I went back to the house and cut in all of the corners in the living room with the Rookwood Amber. We're taking tomorrow of for a They Might Be Giants concert and Thursday having dinner with friends. Maybe we'll roll it on Friday!

Mmm TMBG, I'm jealous. That's a great reward for all of the work you've been doing though. Hi!
