When we stopped last week, the last of the demolition was finished. And when we finally got the last of the plywood up, we were finally able to assess what needed to be done. Some of the framing in the back wall needed reinforcement and then we closed the window hole and added some insulation.
Area where window had been.
Back of house prior to the window area being finished.
Then we had to fix the water damage to the sub floor.
New sub-floor installed.
Finally, we were able to begin putting the room back together!
Caulking, caulking caulking.
I didn’t get a final good picture of our work, but I have never been happy with the colors. I will get a new picture when we put the house up for sale.
Finished except for the light - see wire hanging over sink.
What’s the moral of this story? When starting a project in an old house, leave plenty of time and money for the surprises that you will find!
Next blog on Thursday.
