That’s what I needed yesterday to assemble the faucet set into the tub of one of the 4th floor bathrooms. Unlike all the others where the faucet is exterior, this one sets into the top rear face of the tub. It’s a deep tub and trying to reach from the bottom and the topside at the same time needed someone with very long arms, or two people and Sandra had left for the day when I attempted it. After a couple long hours and many choice words shouted to no one, I finally got it all assembled nad proceeded to hook up the water lines, and drain. I’ll get the drain on the other 4th floor tub done today and test both units for leaks. If all goes well, we can start finishing the kitchen ceiling, which, Sandra reminded my A,D,D self, needs to be finished before the floor goes down.
Ray has nearly finished what he can on the fireplace. Bottom rows of stone need to wait until the hearth stone and the floor are in.
I went and set the second floor island. Was going to set the units against the wall, but we are missing a piece of filler board. Need to get hold of the cabinet company and get that made and shipped. In the meantime, I can set a temporary filler so I can go ahead and set them against the wall. Sandra ordered the farm sink and dishwasher for that floor as well.
Sandra’s staining baseboard and as it’s getting finished, I’m installing what we can without having doors and trim in place.
Got the three small baseboard heaters installed on the 4th floor and tested them. They work. And got the vent pipe for the second floor fireplace through the ceiling and through the outside wall (after bringing out the jackhammer once again). Now waiting on another section of pipe to finish it off. That’ll be done this coming week.
So I’m thinking we are making great progress, when a fellow comes by to look at the house and remarks “You sure have a lot to do if you’re going to get in the house in June”
Besides being a bit of slap to my pride, it’s become a challenge to prove him wrong. Game on!

|Fireplace nearly finished. We are looking for something to sit on the top to finish it off, and there will be a very bright, colorful painting that hangs on the front. Granite guys need to template the hearth.|
