more electrical, drywall, painting, microwaves

So today’s activities include drywalling. In order to do that, I had to reroute some of the wires in the breaker panel so the drywall would fit. Well, if I’m doing that, I might as well label on my circuit numbers.

Once all that is done, I can finally hang my upper cabinets. However, that means I have to paint first.


Then I can finally see if my microwave fits.

A tenant gave back a microwave oven a couple of days ago.  Apparently no one wants them!

today’s tasks: vents, wiring, glue

Today’s tasks are installing roof gable vents, running wiring for the new electric water heater and three outside receptacles, and putting down glue for the kitchen, hall, closets, and bathroom flooring.  I only arrived here at 12 noon, so we’ll see how far I can get.  It’s not 35 degrees outside today, so I won’t cook in the attic.

back in the back

We’re back in the back building again. It’s being used as storage at the moment, but I’ll be starting to lay the pro board down, and hopefully things will start to take shape soon.


first light & various electrical

I see the light!  FT and I installed the suite’s first light.  I decided on 4″ flush-mount LEDs throughout.  Also, the first tearing out of old electrical to make way for new circuits, including a 15A GFCI for the kitchen.  I’m getting pretty agile at crawling through the attic space.
