I’m hoping you learn that identify to your absolute best King Julien voice (from the film Madagascar, in fact). Matt and I incessantly shaggy dog story that if it weren’t for film and TV quotes, we wouldn’t understand how to be in contact with each and every different. ? And whilst strains from the sitcom Buddies will at all times be essentially the most used quotes within the Linauer family, this line from Madagascar is one of the most used film quote between the 2 folks. And in terms of the grasp toilet rework, it’s rather becoming.
Matt requested me simply this morning, “Now that lots of the junk is cleared out and the dumpster is long gone, how a lot more time do you wish to have for the toilet?”
So I instructed him that I might take footage and display him what nonetheless must be completed, and I believed I’d percentage the ones with you as neatly.
Right here’s the place the entirety stands as of this morning…
The wainscoting at the house health club aspect of the room is so with regards to being completed! The aspect to the left of the door wishes a little bit extra caulk after which yet one more coat of paint. The door additionally wishes yet one more coat of paint. Then I want to set up and grout the accessory tile, and the wainscoting in this aspect of the room might be completed.
Then I want to set up transfer and outlet plates (and work out how one can cause them to mix with the partitions). As soon as I am getting the door painted with the second one coat of paint, I will be able to then take away the plastic from the glass panes, upload the privateness movie, and set up the door pulls.
At the vainness, I nonetheless want to do a last sanding with 220-grit sandpaper at the two little drawers, and provides the ones a last coat of the Rubio Monocoat. Then I want to set up the tap, end up the plumbing, upload the glass sun shades again onto the sconces, and dangle the replicate.
The drawers at the heart garage chest and the opposite vainness additionally want the overall sanding and ultimate coat of Rubio Monocoat.
At the external wall aspect of the room, this phase of wainscoting is lagging in the back of the entire relaxation. I nonetheless want to set up the bottom cap molding in this phase, after which it must be caulked, primed, and painted. And not one of the wainscoting in this aspect of the room has the phase the place the accessory trim is going, so that every one nonetheless must be put in.
Additionally, this door wishes privateness movie, a brand new doorknob, and a brand new lifeless bolt.
Across the vainness, the entirety that should occur at the different aspect must occur in this aspect — replicate, sconce sun shades, tap, plumbing, outlet and turn covers, and so on.
So there’s actually no longer numerous stuff left to be completed. However what there’s is numerous element stuff, and it’s time-consuming stuff. Putting in base cap at the wainscoting, picket filling, sanding, and caulking takes approach longer than one most certainly assumes. It’s that varieties of stuff that simply eats thru my time and is making this take approach longer than I feel it must.
However I instructed Matt that this weekend, I would like some responsibility. I want to be in right here running on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, and I want to give it my absolute best effort to get all of those ultimate tasks completed, or as with regards to completed as I will be able to. I even instructed him that I would like him to be tricky on me. If he sees me sitting down to observe TV or waste time on my pc, I requested him to make me rise up and paintings like a drill sergeant, and to not settle for any lame excuses I would possibly get a hold of. ?
So he’ll hang me responsible, and optimistically placing this right here for all of you to look may also give me that additional push. It’s so shut. Sooooo shut!!!
