Monday, December 3: Trash Day!
Yay! All the wood lathe and bags of plaster are leaving my house today! We had the use of a truck, so Nate and his dad took 2 loads of the stuff to the dump! The long lengths of wood didn't make it into those two loads, so they're still in the house, but at least the front of my living room is open!

When I got home from work, the guys made a wonderful meal, that Pam had supplied the ingredients and a recipe for them since she drove back to SC that afternoon. After dinner, I decided to hang some things up.
Here's the doggie station!
Then we got to work on the shower rod!
|silver and copper, looks good!|
|taking measurements for the L-shaped pieces|
|cutting the small piece|
|musical instrument or shower rod?|
|everything is cut to the right sizes!|
|measuring where to drill for the hanging support|

|finished shower rod! So pretty!|
Tuesday, December 4th: Plumb That Dryer!
|But first, pierogies!|
|rope tied into the wrench for a little extra oomph|
And it worked!
|Here's what it looked like after all that! Pretty rough!|
After the guys were finished with the part that required the goggles, I worked on the adhesive.
|parts go quickly, others not so much...|
|the dryer is hooked up!|
Turn it on the test it!
The dryer was free since a friend was replacing it with new appliances. Worth the risk, but not going to work out. There's lint stuck all up in it. And a slight burning smell... Not really sure... Even if we could fix all that, it's so dang loud! So, the plan is to buy a new one. In the meantime, we're hanging everything to dry, which works pretty well, since the basement is nice and warm.
That's all for now, check back for an exciting next entry!! :)
