Bathroom is coming together. New shower valve soldier in and all new faucets/shower heads bought, everything boarded up, initial coats of mud on and thin set on the concrete board for joints/screw holes, new drain installed and poured new floor and curbing in place. Today we got the hydro guard laid down with a few layers of fiberglass too. Hydro guard will go up the walls tomorrow. Then it’s on to tile work.

Cabinets are in, but the few guys I've called about building me a custom Butchblock counter top are being flakes. I guess that's one more thing I'll do myself. I'm going to have to simplify it some since I don't have the equipment to do it the right way. Counter top, little more tile, trim, and this room is done. It going to have to wait though I'm need to jump back on tiling the rest of the house.

Pricey, but i think they will custom make just about anything. Also comes pre preserved and waterproof.

Did custom cabinet work while in school. There are a lot of options out there. I like the spekva end grain butcher blocks. they are not just plain square blocks, but have a shaped glue edge like the illustration.

There are other options as well. its not hard to make one if you so choose. Lots of glue, a bunch of clamps, and a real good sander or planer. Start gluing the strips together and nail them to hold while getting it assembled, then clamp the last one instead of nailing it so there are no holes. Tighten the clamps until you think they are going to break, then add 1/4 turn. Just keep working the clamps from end to end. When its all done, scrape as much glue off as possible and start sanding. After sanding seal with your preferred oil and enjoy. I used heated peanut oil on a cutting board years ago and was actually surprised at how well it held up.

Had the city and county come through and mark up the gas lines and water lines etc. My home was county 4 months before I bought it but there was contamination in the wells and the community started to complain so the city annexed the neighborhood via community vote. Which means I am “City” but I am also within the “County” impact zone....sometimes I feel like there are too many Chiefs and not enough Indians.
Anyhow I had to do all of this because I’m gonna do some landscaping and find a 30’ drill string joint and cement it into my driveway loop for flags and widen my driveway!

I’ve been house shopping lately to get out of this horrible apartment crap. Such a sellers market. Nothing around here is even remotely a good deal. Think I’m gonna but a piece of land either behind or beside my parents and park me a single wide on it. Cheap. Economical. I don’t need much. More money for the trucks.

Moved a bunch of stone and called a reputable digger for my driveway. I have all my lines marked out but I work on the guys stuff all the time so I’m sure I’ll get a descent price. Just seems like digging over NAT Gas line and my well should be left to an INSURED pro

Closet framework - done.
Closet drywall - done.
Cubbie drywall - done.
Hallway drywall - done.


To go:
Bedroom subfloor - waiting for Roni's ok to start. Same for door casings.

Then its on to paint, laminate flooring and trim install.



We're getting there....

Time to widen my driveway out! Had someone come through and dig up the sod and haul it off, took two or three dump beds worth but its done.

Pretty excited, as you can see my trailer is leaning into the spot that is gonna be leveled out. Im getting some flags and some poles so i dont get carried away. First this and then the next step is guard wrap and the foundation stone.

Common sense tells me to get some poles and mark my 6” depth that I need. That way I can ensure i have a level surface. Im gonna line the ditch side of the level spot with 8’x12’ boards and stack my landscape rocks on the outter edge of those boards.
