Trying to contain the dust generated by the drywall work in the bathroom. An eerie sight but every little bit helps!
All of the plumbing has been completed in the bathroom and the entry & bathroom floors and the stairs are ready for the hardwoods to be installed.
The work on the renovations in the sun-room then began. Our plan here is to install ceramic tile on the floor, replace the windows & door and paint. The sun-room, like the bathroom in the entry, was an addition to the house and was constructed rather poorly. Our main concern was to find and fix a leak that has appeared a few times over the years around some of the windows. The framing around three of the windows has been so badly damaged by the water and warped that the windows could not close.
Eight years ago (and probably for some time before that), those termites had quite a feast on the wood in this corner of the sun-room.They ate the entire length of the window and right through the floor. The wall and the wood just crumbled.
Since the replacement windows are custom made and won't be delivered for another couple of weeks, Mimmo and Dan carefully sealed the opening.
I am up early this morning to get out for a 5 mile run. My plan was to run 10 miles today but, for no particular reason, I decided to hold off on that distance until tomorrow morning. I have a nice dinner planned for this evening - barbecued chicken, creamed spinach (at the request of Christopher - again!), challah bread and a fresh tomato, mozzarella and pesto pasta salad. With fuel like that, I am guaranteed to have a great run tomorrow morning. It is still very warm here but a cool-down is predicted for next week so so this might be the last time we are able to eat on the patio.
Have a great Saturday!
