Bathroom Reno Day 188.8.131.52 - Calling it Quits Before Someone Dies
I have no new pictures to show you since I really did nothing much of consequence this afternoon. I need to leave now for a work meeting so I figured it's best just to call it a day and quit while I'm still alive. What did I do? I cut a piece of plywood to put around the vanity area, where it seems they stopped running the luan. I replaced the rotting stud. I unsuccessfully tried to remove the exhaust fan. Oh, how can I forget - I then decided to cut the furring strips I got to affix the beadboard to (which Lowe's still hasn't delivered). I measured twice but somewhere between the second floor and the basement I changed the measurement and cut them too short. I guess it's not that big of a deal - I can attach a few smaller pieces as they're just going to be there for nailing, but sheesh, seriously. I guess knocking off early today isn't such a bad idea after all. I'll probably head to the gym and get a shower later. All I can tell you is that showering in the gym makes me only want to get this bathroom up and running again very quickly - the experience seems to bring back traumatic memories of showering in middle school gym class. Shudder.
