Well, this is the fortieth week in this project. We are four weeks
past our original closing date. I could have had a baby by now!
Oh well, I guess it won't be much longer until we move in. There
is a reason why this place is called Wit's end.
(3)Monday March 18, 2002 - All I did today was install two
thresholds and a lock on my office door.
(2)Tuesday March 19, 2002 - I had to go into Austin for
my day job and I had to help someone with the backhoe so all I did
was re-hang the shop door an install the threshold there.
(6)Wednesday March 20, 2002 - I built ten cabinet doors
and hung two of them in the bathroom.
(3)Thursday March 21, 2002 - All I did today was install
door knobs. I only have two left to do. The septic installer is
supposed to start the excavation for the tanks tomorrow. This should
be interesting since it will be in solid rock.
(8)Friday March 22, 2002 - Well, the septic guys were supposed
to show up. Contractors have their own time schedule. I did clear
out a bunch of cedars so they could easily get to the septic and
put some more gravel on the driveway. I also installed the last
two doorknobs so I am finished with them. I installed the cabinet
doors and hung two more ceiling fans as well. Patti and I agreed
on the stain so I think we will do that tomorrow.
(12)Saturday March 23, 2002 - Patti and I stained all of
cabinets, doors, and drawer fronts, tore out the tile around the
bathtub and put up new tile backer board. I also built the case
for the upper cabinet above the refrigerator and the pull out foil
drawer, made and stained the molding to top off the cabinets and
installed some on the bathroom cabinet.
(6)Sunday March 24, 2002 - I swapped out the dishwasher
at our current house, glued the face frame to the cabinet I built
yesterday, took Clayton to ball practice, installed the last upper
cabinet, and put up the molding above the upper cabinets. I still
need to put up the cove molding and put polyurethane on all of the
woodwork. I am going to use a water based polyurethane this time.
I will let you know what I think of it. Typically I use Defthane
which has proven to be one of the best on the market.
