I'm an engineer and have been working on other projects. The Owner-Builder Book website is some good reading, though.

As I was washing out a thinset bucket - yes finally starting on the showers - I was standing near the AC units outside and I see a mall cloud of vapor coming off the unit I had the most issues with getting brazed. Hell! After two full days, the original pinhole shows up again. At least I was there while it happened so it didn't have to go hunting for it.

So I set about gathering all my stuff, recovered what charge was left, re-brazed the leaking joint and recharged the unit. Back working again, but wasted three hours time.

Todd and Cassidy set about setting LED lights in the cans and some surface mount units upstairs where there wasn't enough space to put in cans. Trouble is I'm running through HD's total stock. LED's have come down in price tremendously in just the past year or so. You can find Cree or Philips lights for under $20, including the trim rings. Considering trim rings are ~$7 and a good CFL bulb is going to be $7, for a little more you've got a bulb that will never need changeout, it only makes sense to me to go ahead with it. Plus they are instant on, unlike the CFL bulbs. 

Cassidy needs to choose wall colors and as soon as that is done, they'll start on painting, this time with a roller. When I get back from traveling the next few days, I'll go back to the showers and if the bathrooms are painted, start of their floors as well. Todd's back touring again so he's MIA for a month. :-(
