Slowly but surely, I'm catching up on various projects and not starting any new ones. For Me, this is a bit of a change-of-pace: The usual script runs something like this...
- Decide to move fixtures in mud porch bathroom because pipes keep freezing in uninsulated crawlspace below.
- Notice that floor is clearly not level, and defer plumbing until this is rectified.
- Go into crawlspace, muck out a bunch of garbage, go off to do other things.
- Fridge expires of old age. Erect temporary, level pallet in back of mud porch to hold new fridge and freezer, because floor still hasn't been levelled.
- Haul some more crap out of crawlspace. Go off to do more pleasant things.
- Winter sets in. Temperature and humidity changes cause back door to stick occasionally. Make mental note to replace door.
- While under the porch in sub-zero weather, hastily installing some extra insulation, make observation that the mud porch floor could benefit from a new beam and teleposts to support that cranky back door.
- Spring arrives. Latch on back door deadbolt finally expires and is replaced.
- Call contractors for telepost estimates.
- Invest in good-quality respirator, in anticipation of a thorough clean-out of the junk in the crawlspace.
- Rediscover bag of plumbing parts originally intended for bathroom re-plumbing. Seriously think about hiring a plumber to do the work... After the floor has been reinforced and properly levelled.
- Finally go into crawlspace to finish that clean-out, and try not to feel guilty about the almost-finished roof on the Cat Gazebo.
