What Lies Beneath

When Ed pulled up the subfloor of the bathroom, he discovered one of those "oops" things that I hear are inevitable in a remodel: there wasn't all that much holding up the floor.

So he took out the wimpy and too-few joists he found, and today my bathroom was the bottomless pit.




Meet Ed.


These are the days when you begin to wonder what the hell you were thinking. Moving would have been easier and cheaper.


The view from the basement.



Ed's going to put new joists in across the new, reinforced sill he added. He's then going to straighten the wall and add some missing studs.

In short, he's tearing down my bathroom and building a whole new one.

He assures me that it's all going to be wonderful in the end. Right now, it looks like the pit of doom. The very, very expensive pit of doom.

Hey Ed!!

Although you will feel so much better knowing what's under there now and what you won't have to worry about, right?

Awesome what a little drywall will do later on.

Hee! I love thinking of this as "a little drywall."

It sounds so much more affordable that way!
