We haven’t forgotten about the Rattlesnake house! In fact, things are moving along much better. Chris seems to have all the electric and plumbing stuff under much better control, as you can see if you watch the April 25 Facebook update below (if you’re on the home page, just click the more link).
There are also actual walls with sheetrock on them in some of the rooms. Yay! That sure looks nice. Unfortunately, they ran out of the pre-purchased sheetrock and need to get more, so Mandi is putting together a BIG order for more supplies today. Of course, some things are on back order. Of course. Never fails. And you wonder why projects get delayed?
Mandi was especially irritated to see that the nice, normal-yet-attractive bathtub she decided to buy is a special order that takes two weeks, but the fancy one with lights and gee-gaws that she realized was a bit over the top is NOT a special order. What the heck? They have one of those fancy ones no one ever buys, just sitting around, but don’t have any of the type most remodelers want? Hmm.
As soon as the windows are measured one last time, the new windows will get ordered, too. That’s going to make such a big difference.
Interesting Ventilation Feature
Chris has found some really cool vents for the bathroom that are really easy to use, which we hope will make keeping the bathrooms free of dampness a lot easier, even in a house with little kids. In the April 24 video below (which also features cute dogs), he explains how it works way better than I would. All I know is I wish I had those in my house!
I think Chris needs to have his own YouTube channel full of advice from the wise contractor guy. Anyway, thanks to him for letting us share his wisdom with you.
