We continue with this epic renovation. I have slowed down the past couple of weeks because I do have a real job and this is the time of the year our gallery gets pretty busy.
And while we’re at it – we’ll start cutting the floor up. I had pipe laid under the floors before the overlay of 4″ of concrete. Since I made the bathroom much bigger I now have to cut the paths for the new lines.* Note to self* Lay out the bathroom before you pump your basement full of concrete.
We’ll get over to the pantry now and start building the walls. I use kiln dry pressure treated lumber for the bottom plates. I’ll build a new staircase once we’re finished with the walls. I also installed a new jet pump under the stairs so I can have well water for our garden.
The walls for the doors are in. You can see the layout has the pantry with two angled walls. This is the only way I could get the two entrances into the space. I wanted to avoid a straight wall with 2 doors. The bath door is on the left and pantry to the right. On the other side of the wall space between the doors there will be a refrigerator nook in the pantry.
Well, we’ll just keep keepin on….
