Work continues, but we try to have a life too...

After consulting several people we have decided it would probably be best not to jack up the whole house to deal with a sag in one short hallway. But yesterday Michael and Phillip Doyle, a local homebuilder who knows Michael, managed to jack up, even out and reinforce the bathroom floor joists, so we are pretty much ready to move on to the subfloor.

For a break from the house we did some lounging around and went to a drag race last night. It was pretty fun - very Kentucky :) Here are some pictures.

Hopefully we will be making some serious progress on the bathroom this week, so I will be able to add pictures of that soon. For now, here's a picture of the tub enclosure we're planning to get for our clawfoot tub, it should look really good! I think we are going to paint the outside of the tub black, which will look nice with the black and white tile!

are you ordering from we got ours from there and I'm not sure it was the best choice. Ut looks great, but sometimes when we switch from bath to shower it just dribbles out and we have to fight with it. my husband even had to take a bath one morning before work because the shower wasnt working. Plus it's expensive and you have to put the whole thing up before you can see if it works right. I'm not sure if I would order from them again. Although our plumber thought it was made well. Maybe we bought a lemon. Your house looks great. Sorry for the ramble!
