Tackle It Tuesday. More Dormer Construction.

Alrighty! Here's a photo of Zane's (former!) room last week as I emptied it in anticipation of our friend Sam coming to use his mad construction skillz.

In case you missed last week or you're too lazy to click here** to see last week's post--I'll update you. We're moving, Sam is builiding two dormers in the upstairs, one will have a bathroom in it.

**Ha! I had to edit the post to put the link in because I was too lazy. Or I have a bad memory.

Here's what Sam did the same day I took the photo above:


Oh look. There's Chuck in all the mess!

Here's how it looks this morning.

The progress is mind-boggling, really. Why didn't we do this a LONG time ago? Why now when we're moving out??

Zane's pretty upset there will now be a bathroom upstairs. He says we should have done this a long time ago, too.


P.S. The red is a tarp to keep the rain out. I think Sam is enclosing everything today.

While Sam has been doing the stuff that requires skillz, I, on the other hand, fail at even the most simplest of chores. Well this first one, not so much. I picked out the new linoleum for the two bathrooms. You like? I do.


And maybe this isn't so much as fail. It's a vision. I am a visionary!! Yes. That's the ticket. We went to Bailey's our local insurance salvage store (oh it's wonderful!)

Phil's building a shelving unit for the master bath we're remodeling after the one in Zane's (former!) room is finished.

I found these cabinet doors for $3 each (and they're gooooooood solid doors. Better than my kitchen cabinets!)

Anyway, no. The colors don't match. I thought the floor had more red in it. I was going to leave them different colors before I realized that's just not going to work. So I'll paint them boring white. I hope I can figure out how to do that black in the grooves after I paint them boring white.

That's it for me. I didn't even pack a single box this week. Or maybe I did. I don't remember. But I will pack some this week. I don't have a choice!

Amazing what you can do when the pressure is on. That's when we usually get most of our house work done! Gonna be great!

If Zane had a bathroom up there all this time - you may have not seen him all these years. He would come down the stairs half grown! LOL
