UPDATE, Friday night, midnight: PW and LP are living in a hotel. I visit every two days to shower and use the facilities. So far, I've managed to gut the room, tear out the floor, rebuild a rotten wall, sister in new floor joists, lay the sub-floor, frame in the enclosure for the tub/shower and put in all the missing nailers (it was built in the days of horsehair plaster and insulation-hence no nailers for drywall). Tonight (midnite to 6am) I'll plumb in the vent pipe, rough in and wire the exhaust fan, light, switches and outlets and insulate the walls. Tomorrow comes the hanging the vapor barrier, laying the finish floor and linoleum, building the final tub enclosure wall to be installed after the tub is laid, and getting the drywall purchased and started. Sunday is drywall, plumbing in tub, toilet, vanity and sink. HOLY FUCK am I screwed. I leave Monday morning if PW doesn't kill me for lack of a bathroom in the face of my imminent departure.
Promises are meant to be broken. I'm not posting pics of anything before I head for Alaska. I leave in 6 days. I have a bathroom that still has a floor, a few bits of lath on the walls and a working shower and toilet. I need to yank all that shit out, walls and floors included before I can even think about new floors (sub floor and even some joists-yay!), wall, plumbing, electrical, tub/shower, toilet, vanity/sink. I haven't done some of this shit in 20 years, I have 6 days and this is a 100 yr old house. PW and LP are leaving for a hotel in town and I'll be sleeping in the bathroom, at least once it has a new floor. Thank the gods mr. Bud has a cell phone and lots of patience.
