We Can’t Come to the Blog Right Now

Look busy and keep your mouth shut.

– Mr. Burns

It’s magical to have a contractor, but since we are doing some of the work (and since the schedule relies on our doing that work soonish), it’s been semi-crazy around Chez D’oh. We are finishing the electrical work (and found an electrician to do the AC), but here’s a general update on everything else.

The framing is complete.

There’s a new window in the reading room. I am in love with this window. It opens from top and bottom, it’s got great proportions, and it makes me feel like I’m in a treehouse.

Only open at the top because Mayya (lounging in foreground) was VERY INTERESTED (screens aren’t in yet)

We've promised our neighbours not to just stare at them all the time.

The plumbing is roughed in (and approved!).

More flexible water lines and complicated venting for most of the house

The AC is in and wired.

It's very petite.

Almost all of the new boxes for the former knob and tube wiring are in (plaster repairs to follow).

Remember I said to tape before chiseling plaster? I didn't.

Mayya is over being freaked out by having new guys in the house.

Worksite? What worksite? This is all mine.

Inigo is better, but still worried. He meows mournfully whenever a big noise happens, and he’s prone to this reaction:

Eeeek

I’m telling you, it’s MONSTERS.

Once we get our electrical rough-in inspected (oh, please, let it be this week), things will start to move in a hurry. Roofing, insulation, and drywall are up next.

  1. you can do it! You are saving soo much money by doing that electrical yourself. Looks amazing. I like the bathroom layout and pocket door…looks like you are working with the vent situation the best you can. That shelving will be nice to have there. We changed out bathroom layout about 100 times after new discoveries were made the deeper we go into it. Sending good vibes your way.

      Sarah, I keep meaning to tell you that I am seeing more and more aspirational bathrooms online with fireplaces — you are the trend-maker! (Thanks for the moral support, trend-maker!)
