The door that didn't fit

It has been a while, I know. Sometimes life gets hectic but I assure you, S-wood is always on my mind and I am always full of posts, just a matter of sitting down and writing them out!

It was a gloomy weekend up there weather-wise and it poured yesterday but we still had a great time, great food, and great work time. It was also a “no kid” weekend which basically means that the children are at their dad’s for the weekend so we were all alone and able to work at our own pace and not worry about other people. Dave and I are usually pretty in tune that way and work pretty straight.

Bathroom: Dave finished installing the vent pipe to the roof (of course he had to paint it so it wouldn’t stick out) but I didn’t get any pictures of it. We have still not been able to get the rest of the wood for the top of the bathroom walls. We have the wainscoting but we are waiting for the rough sawn top halves so I can paint them all at one time. We did however get a door… well actually w had a door for the bathroom, we just hadn’t installed it. We had to make a few “modifications” (we cut it we cut it) but eventually we got ‘er up and now we have some privacy with our new indoor plumbing. *I say some because we haven’t found the “used” doorknob yet. I would like to find 3 matching because right in that area are ALL 3 of our interior doorways and it wouldn’t stink to have them all match!

So here is the Before... where the door didnt fit...

And here is Frankenstein checking out the first interior door of the house! (incidentally, he continued to go in and out of the bathroom for the rest of the freaking day)

And just for the sake of showing you where we are at, this is the bathroom (wainscoting piled on the floor)
