Halfway done

Tomorrow, I need to go in, and finish attaching some boards to the wall that will hold up the facade. I ran out of boards before going to class today. I also need to put in some blocks to creat the “lip” of the shower. Afterwards, I need to install the drain and fill in the trench I pounded through the concrete floor this morning. My wrists and hands are sore from the pounding and the weight of the mallets. Next, I’ll be adding a slope from the edges of the shower to the drain. Then, I’ll be putting in the plastic “drain pan”.

From there, I’ll move into installing the water pipes for the shower, toilet, and sink. Once those are in, I’ll need to finish the ceiling.

It sounds more complicated than it is. Suffice it to say, it’ll get done. I got paid a small advance for the work. I’ll get the rest after the job is done. This morning, before going in, I stopped at Wal-Mart for goggles, gloves, and knee pads. They paid off. Not only did I not get crap in my eyes, I avoided getting blisters and my knees were really comfy while I kneeled on the concrete floor with my kneepads. Other than that, the rest of me is sore.

I’ll be free next week if you need an odd job done. Just call the number at 4oddJobz.com.
