Sub Rosa

Today, in things I never thought I'd get excited about...

You can now WALK AROUND in our bathroom. For months, we've had the floor completely open - just joists and the ceiling of the room below. That let us have total access for plumbing, electrical, air sealing, and insulation. When we needed to work in the room, we either balanced on the joists or moved around pieces of plywood.

Now all that big work is done, and it was time to close up the floor. For all the lead-up to this momentous occasion, it was a pretty quick job.

First we measured and cut the plywood, placing holes as needed for the plumbing.

Yes, she's in the Cone of Shame. She's fine! Just letting her paw heal after the Obsessive Licking Incident of Spring 2016.

Glue it down.


Then nail it in place. (My favorite part - smashy smashy!)


Partway through...


And done!


I could jump for joy! No, literally. I can actually jump up and down in the bathroom now without falling through the ceiling below.

It's the little things.
