Renovation – Days 9 & 10

Deborah's Diary

I’ve been waiting for something to happen. Finally, I have pictures. The floor was leveled between the entrance way between the family room and kitchen.

The carpenters arrived to work on the shelving. I am told that Wenge will be used for the shelves. I had to look it up on the Internet to know what the wood was. I like it. There will be more work done on this spot on Tuesday.

The sample for the screen was brought to make sure of the sizing. The wood screen will go in this open space to prevent people from falling down to the basement, landing on the stairs and possibly breaking bones. The spacing in the screen is quite large, so the door and outside will still be visible, and light will come through easily. I’m sure little ones will look at it and think that perhaps it would be fun to climb. It will be firmly anchored, but the wood will not  be strong enough to hold body weight. Parents beware.

John, the dry wall guy or is he called the taper guy, visited us too. He applied the second coat on the walls and will return sometime today (Saturday) to finish up.

Kyle, the contractor, fixed the laundry room/powder room door. To you who have used this room, you will be relieved to know that the door actually shuts now and that you can lock it. Kyle said that it really bothered him and so he took the liberty to fix it. He said it’s standard for old houses to have doors that don’t close properly. No more surprise visits from the cats. You can use the powder room and know that no two-legged or four-legged being will walk in on you.

I am told there is a lot to do, but it will all fall into place.Are we still on schedule? I don’t know, but I will let you know when I find out.
