Steve was busy with the following:
Being a landlord
(It's a dirty job, but someone has to do it.)
The exterminator came to set up the mouse traps upstairs.
I don't even want to tell you what they caught in one of their glue traps over the weekend because it made it difficult for me to fall asleep last night.
Framing the entry
(still not finished- it's a work of art and these things take time right?)
Notice the Great Stuff filling in the gaps- we love Great Stuff! Well, actually we love the stuff except for the fact that a can fell off the ladder onto Steve's head on Saturday- that kinda hurt.
Steve has a few more boards to go and he needs to put in the door strikes before we drywall.
We also are big fans of shims. God bless the ability to buy shims right off the shelf.
and most exciting...going to the Woodshop
(in Lincoln Park not our local one, which is sadly closed for the time being)
Word on the street is that it will reopen after they manage to hire someone, which takes a while since they have to do FBI background checks and alotta paperwork before anyone gets hired.
Steve cut out the finishing pieces for our brackets. These will go in between the brackets under the shelves and hide the under shelf light fixtures.
This weekend I have more wood to "clean."
Maybe I'll insulate the ceiling in the entry depending on how things go. It's a small room and it's hard for both of us to work in there at once. Been there - done that- in our bathroom.
