The Mr. decided to jack hammer up the remaining front stoop and go for a concrete pour. Now that the weather has warmed up, that should be no problem and the concrete truck arrives tomorrow.
Sigh, sometimes these things happen. The tile in the half bath was just not to his liking so up it all came. He had optimistically thought the floor was level enough, but the final product was just too wavy and it needs to be redone.
Speaking of tile, the foyer / dining area is done. The kitchen awaits removal of the boiler.
A nice fresh coat of paint (white again) really perked up the fireplace chimney.
While making my weekly visit to the job, I had the pleasure of running into Gerry "no crack" the plumber. I took advantage of the opportunity to snap a photo showing how he got his name.
Gerry is working on getting the new boiler installed which involves lots of soldering. Much easier (and safer) to do it outside.
Gerry was a bit dismayed at his lack of actual face time on the blog for this project. He suggested that his hurt feelings could be somewhat mollified by a live action video.
I was happy to oblige. Watch it here or below.
