Just a quicky

Starting to tile the downstairs bathroom shower.....working with this style of tile has to be one of the most tedious tasks I've done. Those 'sheets' move all over the place and the then set squeezes up between each tile.

I thought I had the mix pretty thick. Next batch even thicker.

Been a little busy at work lately. Only one day off in the past 3 weeks.

Our last door arrived. It's for the master bedroom. Now we will be able to keep the dog off our bed when we are gone. He liked to chew on a bone in our bed....after her rolled around in the dirt a bit.

Ever have one of those tasks you just couldn't get up the motivation to do? Well, finishing the flooring in my sons closet was one of those tasks. Besides all the angles, the crawl space access door is in there as well.

Not hard....just a lot of walking from the room to the garage to use the saw. But I got it done. And I like how the trap door came out. The pull ring is fitting for the room.

And since I had the access open I crawled in and hooked up the antenna ground wires that I ran down there about a year ago.

Feels good to get those two tasks done.

Took this pic this morning. Thought it would be cool to show what the house looked like in 2003 vs now.

2003

Looks good dawg but how do the old and new roofs come together? It doesn't look ideal from this angle anyway.

I'll go up and take you a couple of pics. The right side was easy.....left side, yea, 'Cali' build. 1:2 roof slop with torch down.

Let me know is this does not make sense. I'm standing on the front side of the roof shooting the backside. You can get an idea of the angle from the windows. I really like the setup. I can get on the roof from either window.

And that glass bubble in the second pic? Some for the light tube to the existing bathroom. On a day like this it's about par to a 500w light.

When I asked the question I was wondering where the water was going. Now I can see...Nice funnel.

It's a good thing that is doesn't rain much there. That detail would be a nightmare just one State to the North.

In a good year we get around 15". This past year it is more like 5". Of course one of the 15" years had to be when I didn't have the roof yet.

But I think your right. If lived further north my roof line would be different. That would have dictated a slightly different build.
