and the clock keeps ticking

goals and deadlines

the floor is done !
. . . . . . . . . .
The original project was the floor. It grew and got side-tracked several times in the interim. Last June, when my lovely bride ripped up the carpet in the added-on-to-the-back-of-the-house 11' x 22' TV and laundry room, I caved in and agreed to replace the flooring.

Since that eventful day, I have:
- ripped-out a closet that went across the width of the room at one end
- replaced a rear-of-the-house entry / exit door and storm-door
- replaced an interior door to the kitchen
- dry-walled and painted the entire room
- replaced 6 windows and outside storm windows in this room
- replaced an upstairs storm window [not related to this project]
- installed a new ceiling [grid and drop-in tiles] and light fixture
- added and ran the wire for 2 electrical outlets and 1 TV Cable outlet
- repaired / replaced a section of damaged floor
- built a 5' x 4' x 7" platform on which sets her majesty's stacked washer & dryer and a supplies cabinet
- installed laminate flooring [Pergo]

...and I only started the project middle of last June - WOW! Keep in mind that there was hardly a flat unbowed or straight and square wall or ceiling or floor surface anywhere in this added-on-to-the-back-of-the-house room.

- have started the floor, window, and door moldings and hope to have that part completed by Christmas.

And we had a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration with five of my six siblings and most of the children and grandchildren associated with this grouping of our families. I hope you had a special time, too.
