    How I spent my summer (vacation?)....

    Most of my time was taken up working on a kitchen reno for a friend and neighbor that dragged out for the whole summer, but in keeping with T0G's work ethic, I wanted to post a couple of shots of work on my own house.

    Back story--some years ago, I salvaged the wide plank oak from the floor of the MBR to patch (and save) the living/dining room floor--a success--but then this room languished. I finally completed the drawn-out project of taking down the ceiling and external wall board, re-insulating and then new drywall, tape, paint etc.

    And I finally got the new floor down--finished earlier this week, and I'm on to closet trimming now. (There are four of them, and three doorways, so the floor was a little tricky!) The flooring in refinished oak that was on clearance at HD.

    Yes--I think my summer was more fun, even with all the work.

    Best wishes for continued recovery!

    OP can now join Peloton and buy one of those fancy bikes that doesn't move. He/she may want to trim back some of those trees so normals on the outside can see them better and make better commercials.
