Brrrr…still no snow, but it’s cold outside! I’ll take the lack of white stuff, though, and every week brings us that much closer to camping season 2012!
It’s been a good week – we have been attempting to get the upstairs bathroom done before the end of the month, but it was not to be.
He did a really great job, especially in the closet area.
However, Harry discovered an issue when he removed the base of the toilet to replace the floor in that section of the room. The flange was rusted out. Yes, I have learned a new term.
So we have to have a plumber come and replace it. The bright side is that we will have the downstairs tub faucet and drain replaced at the same time. So another item checked off the list.
We believe that the rusting was caused by the condensation we have on this toilet every summer. So we went to Home Depot yesterday (again!) and bought a toilet with an insulated tank so we won’t have a repeat of this issue in the future.
In the meantime, we bought the paint we need to finish up our bedroom – otherwise known as plan B.
Only a few days left to 2011!
