What I Did On My Summer Vacation: A Tale Of Mirth And Woe
Looks like it's gonna take a few coats of primer to get those bricks painted white
I'm pleased to report that phase one of this three-stage project is largely complete. There's miles to go before the job is wrapped, but the main components are in place. WIth the help of my brother-in-law (whose skill-sets seem to stretch to the horizon and beyond) I removed the worthless unused stovepipe from my chimney, sealed the cavity, and repaired all the loose brick and mortar. The party wall was built out and was filled with insulation in an attempt to deaden sound transfer ( my neighbors evidently don't share my taste in music) All sheetrock is hung and taped, electrical in place. It's looking pretty good if I do say so myself. Can't wait to get back to my desk- working at the kitchen table is a fairly joyless arrangement.
