Got a LOT done in two days with the help of my oldest son. Finished the wood top on the bath seat, got more wires run, and lots of yard work. I keep finding things I missed (an alarm wire here, a telephone wire there). Pat and I put in blocking on corners for the drywall to screw to in several places, and I think all the blocking is done except for some I noticed on the way out. We'll get that next time. I needed to run a couple more wires for alarm sirens and sensors, got that finished.

Pat got most all the yard whipped into shape, as I have been hiding in the house doing work inside while it was VERY hot out during the summer months. It was pretty nice out this week, 78°-82°F high and a cool breeze. Got several other items put onto my list to get done in the next two weeks, and then we get a rough electrical inspection probably next week.

Bath seat with plywood. This will all be covered by a sheet of DUROCK and a layer of LATICRETE Hydro Ban, a liquid-applied waterproofing that you can tile right over. Makes for an easy DIY shower area.
The septic area (mowed), and near the house and electrical transformer
The GRIM REAPER. The weeds didn't stand a chance. LOTS of dust due to dry conditions, that's a painter's respirator he's wearing.
We used scrap plywood to screw into the sides of the stairs, so the drywall would have something to screw to along the bottom edge between the studs.
