We had spent the past two weekends working solidly on the house. Wife and daughter painting, me working on the bath. I had bought a new electrical panel and had it set. Bought two rolls of wire, can lights for the living room and a new vent fan for the bath. Left for the day Sunday evening and left the wire, saw, pry bars, paint brushes, chalk line, tape measure, extension cord, shop vac and ladders. Returned Monday and all that was left were the ladders and shop vac, can lights and fan. Someone had kicked the back door in. Even had taken three small boxes of drywall screws. What a bummer! About $300 in all.  Figured a locked door would deter them, but not.

All in all probably a cheap lesson. Could have been more later when I had become more comfortable with leaving more tools. I still had $800 of plywood, felt and sheetrock they didn't take. I've spent the last two evenings trying to get the plywood laid on the floors before that walks. We'll get a security service in with cameras, as soon as we have wiring redone. In the meantime, I have the ladders chained to a structural post and take everything else with me when I leave for the day. My little SUV is full!

The bathroom floor has been repaired, and the overlay is done. Overlay is done in one of the bedrooms and 2/3 of the living room. I'll finish what I can (before we remove a wall) of the living room and then tackle the other bedroom. That will take care of the majority of the plywood. The rest can't go down until we tear into the kitchen. Later this weekend, I'll install the can lights and bath fan and I won't have to carry those around.
