Update. Things are still moving along. I decided to heed the advice of several on here and put down a layer of 7/16 OSB as underlayment. This will help with the short pieces, and make the floor a bit sturdier and less squeaky. It’s cheap here at $10 a sheet.
A clean room for Mary to stay in while the rest of the house is dusty / messy. Great for reading, napping, or watching a movie.
Framed in the old doorway, installed a header in the new one. Jacked it up good and tight, it’s definitely weight-bearing now. Note the underlayment.
Old doorway drywalled over, and kitchen getting ready for paint.
Underlayment in the living room.
Flooring is here! 4,000 lbs of it, and my lovely assistant helped me carry it all in.
Installing a drain line under the bathroom / kitchen. I’m redoing the entire household plumbing right to the main stack.
Kitchen cabinets mockup. We’ll paint the walls before installing them.
A load of tires for the free tire dump day! Something like 40 tires.
Two photos I took yesterday. The last of the beautiful fall leaves.
