Happy New Year to everyone. It’s been some time since my last installment at the Misadventures project. But I’ve been busy with the gallery and of course here at the renovation home.
Now that the tub has found it’s final resting place we can build a wall behind it. 1st a pressure treated plate is attached to the concrete floor with Tapcon screws. The 2X4 studs are then cut and screwed into place. I like to assemble the wall this way instead of putting it together on the floor and then sliding in place as a single unit. Being an old house nothing is uniform and this allows for minor variations in the old framing.
This is a short post, as the weather has stopped this project until the ground thaws out. That cast iron drain line will go away and I’ll add an egress window in the spring – then I can finish the wall framing and get to the pretty stuff!
Don’t worry, I’ve got lots of other projects to keep me busy until then.
Next up – back to the Master Bath….
