Just an update, I was tracing the electric so removed some drywall. I am now doing mold remediation. This is so much fun. I mean it, too. I love everything I am learning along the way. Recieved my tankless heater hoping it's in by next weekend. Idk. It's been really hot here and it will be the 4th. Maybe next week.i am thankful I found it since there is a bedroom on the other side of that wall.

Won't you please PM me a phone number, Cherie? If I ever get crazy enough to go back into the remodeling business, I'll give you a call and you can have as much fun as you can stand! Some travel and seeing new places will be involved, too.

You'd be fed up fast, I am disabled, so i take very frequent breaks. I have devised ,questionable, according to hubby, workarounds. My hands aren't as strong as they used to be and you should see how i get heavier stuff, to me, from point A to B. I've learned to relax. If something takes me an hour and it normally should take 15 minutes? Oh well, I got nothing but time. Lol
So I decided to enjoy everything. Sometimes I almost don't care if this room gets finished. Not the popular option among the voters. I worked in a factory, had fun in the army then went back to school to learn a sedentary job, not my fave. I just like learning in almost any way, except math. And yet my 2 kids do great in Math. 1 softwear engineer, website specialist and other Math and Science Teacher, now curriculum honcho for headstart. Lol
Physical, hands on work is my number 1 draw. So I do what I can.

Hell, we're all disabled, Cherie.

I, for one, am physically disabled by having been on the same planet for 75 years. Mentally disabled by my upbringing and having worked some thirteen years for the federal government. Psychologically disabled by.......well, see numbers one and two!

But, like yourself, I still enjoy the hands-on part of many types of projects and learning new things. Well, 'cept how to use this damn new telephone my kids made me buy.

The guy doing our tankless and my husband discussing installing the Rinnai. I haven't put that brand in. Hubby wow sounds like alot to do. Guy, yea, gotta run a line up and get 3/4 to tank. Me rolling eyes. Already have pex to location, bought valves. They were all of course drinking that night. Next day, looked at hubby. He can come 1 day after I know he is coming. Outlet is a foot on other side of wall. I will run it over and install the 3/4, 3/4 1/2 T. Before he gets here. I have 3/4 gas line right under installation site. I am going with whatever venting K wants. It can do both. Yep will do electric first, take a break the t off gas line. Not letting good ole boys know thats done till he comes over.

Wow my daughter has been trying to pry the flip phone away for a year. What was their secret to getting you updated. Lol
I was the one keeping up with them so I could spy on them.

I'd be turning those into pickets right now, but dog sitting for daughter. 2 yr wedding anniversary. Her 3 dogs would bark up a storm and they lunge at tools if it makes a noise. Which a saw max or jigsaw would do.i have it all ready but that, 1 yr old granddaughter helped sand them and I have a small ball peen hammer I made a long time ago for her to use. We are making a gate together. She is helping to make her own prison so she doesn't splat down the stairs

They way you guys describe a flat floor has helped with my visualizing it. I think I had been trying to separate my woodworking to much with this. Thanks everyone.
