Well, I wasn't born one, but I moonlight as one on the weekends. I can't believe I am willing to post such an awful photo of me on the internet. Scroll to the very bottom of the blog if you want to see what I look like cleaned up.
This photo is me after removing the lathe and remaining debris. I like to call myself "Pigpen" at moments like this.
Had to get ready for the electrician coming next weekend and so I decided to remove the lathe so he can do whatever needs to be done easily and plus we want to reinforce the furring strips on the brick. We also discovered a small brick repair that we will make before sealing up the walls. Removing the lathe will also allow us to insulate and put a vapor barrier.
Here are some current photos:
I wanted to show this shot of the entry because it shows the disparate elements in the room. I already have matching curtains for both doors and will be changing out the obscured glass with clear to match the door on the left.
Saturday I grouted the tile and it turned out just great. I am getting pretty good at this tiling thing.
Wall sans brackets. This photo shows the mounting hardware for the brackets.
All in all, it was a pretty productive weekend.
Next weekend is the 4th and Steve has said that he will be able to finish the shelves. We'll see. I am hopeful! I will probably begin stripping the woodwork for the entry...
