Today I stopped by to see how the house was going. It is going well but glacially slowly, as usual. But hey, the glaciers are speeding up, so maybe my contractor will, too. I live in hope. Or maybe my workers are frozen. Check out this photo.
This will be the utility room — coats, boots, muddy dogs, miscellaneous detritus. Every house has or wants one. Right now, this is the worker’s bathroom. Yes, they need the shower. They spend a lot of time here. They need a heater too and no, it’s not just out of the frame. Privacy screen around the toilet? That went during demolition. Even the door is gone so even though they do generate steam in the shower — note the water heater — it doesn’t stick around long enough to get them into their clothes. I would be so cranky but of everyone I deal with on this project, the guys who depend on this room are the cheerful ones.
There is a life lesson here but I have no interest in learning it.
