"I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by." Douglas Adams

Yep, I've been comfortably house sitting, spending my workdays at the green ghetto B&B at a hobby pace. I truly enjoy the work - but the pace is too slow. There is a learning curve, a personal need for elegant mechanical solutions (plumbing art?), and a lack of vision - or perhaps taste. Read: do it, don't like it, do it again. So much of the plumbing is sub-grade or to be behind sheet-rock - I just don't wan't it to be wrong.

House sitting comes to an end soon. Good news, as I have my best ally in this business back: my dad. I will now be living at the project - and have made some progress to make it livable.. my cool new 12' x 8' addition. And, if you look carefully - the new Kohler Shower plumbing is showing through the wall above the new tub - that work is actually all in place and hidden by the Hardibacker panels. Used the new mildew resistant "green-board" for the rest of the bath

I added a video in the insulation removal post - ignore the music, check out how much that vacuum sucks!

not trying to be arty with the photos - just over-optimized them - too tired at this juncture to fix it..
