A few neat things going on with me lately.
First, my great friend LC has been up visiting and saving me from my own best intentions and ignorance on this job that never ends (aka the sun porch job). Yesterday and today we installed the hardwood floor. There is still a tiny bit to do, but it looks so damned good I had to share. My knees don't give a damn whether I use knee pads or not. The pressure of being on them is still awful and as soon as I finish this post I am going to go smear Biofreeze all over them and head to bed. But first look at what we did:
There will be a trap door in the floor. It goes in this space and is presently being held together with clamps. I think she's doing something really fussy to it - something about holding the hardwood securely to the plywood or something. Yeah. I dunno. I'm pretty sure Gollum lives down in this hole though. I know I was in there last summer when there was no building on top of it, but right now it just looks creepy. I'm sure there are 50-legged mutant spiders down there waiting to pounce on an unsuspecting person who wanders down to chase a dropped tool. I have been very careful with my tools.
LC also saved me from the butchery I was attempting on the window and wall trim. Here are some pictures of that.
With any luck, we'll finish up a good part of the trim, baseboards and floor tomorrow. After which I reserve the right to sozzle in a borrowed spa.
