- drew finished installing the shower, only to be told by the plumbing inspector that he needed to add a tempering valve. this valve leaks. of course.
- we painted the floors white, only to have them destroyed by the ongoing construction process - and my inability to understand the utility of dropcloths when i'm...
- ...busy painting several coats of the wrong color paint on three separate doors and three windows.
all of this sounds more dreary than it really is, and so i bring you the latest in master bedroom chic:
the stairs, complete with treads (yet to be stained). drew and his coworker peter, who is an incredible woodworker, spent the last two days building the bottom two steps, which are rounded at one end. a really involved process involving, apparently, every tool ever invented.
the aforementioned "white" floors. with a couple more coats, they should look grand.
drew's closet (right) and the future built-in bookshelf (left) in the bedroom proper.
my closet (right) and the linen clost (left), now featuring doors painted the correct color.
