For Safekeeping.....

I managed to get the ceiling installed in the bathroom this morning. Then I proceeded to start putting things back in place to see how they look. As soon as I did, I realized two things.....I put away the faucets for the sink and tub for "safekeeping". While I wasn't looking, they wandered away.

The other thing was brought to light by Tessie...She drifted in to take a look and immediately exclaimed,"There's no place to put extra towels, shampoo, soap, perfume, toilet paper, hair products and my hair dryer."

Unfortunately, she is right. I need to make a tall shelf or cabinet to go on the front right wall. Rats! More work!

Otherwise, she approved. I didn't tell her that the pull chain to flush the toilet is also missing. Presumably, it is with the faucets, in a safe place....Here we go again.


Zar is still in the workroom. Tessie hired him to build some "slanty shelves" on the right side.

I kept wondering how best to utilize the two slanted walls in the workroom. The two of them have solved the problem.

We already cut a piece of mat board to get the correct angle. The plan is to start with a wide shelf at the bottom and finish with a narrow shelf at the top, thus using all of the possible space for storage.

I am thinking that I will talk them into craftsman style, similar to the work table that I did last week. I don't want a solid end on the shelves. I will stagger slats of walnut with spaces between for the verticals.

Walter is still on vacation. We are going to go see "The Expendables" later. This is a really cool vacation as far as I am concerned. I still get to do minis. I get to go to movies in the middle of the week and usually eating out after.

I think that Walter is pretty OK with it. He gets to go golfing four times this week. For him, there is never enough golf.

I am going back now and chase Tessie and Zar out of the workroom. I need to install the ceiling before I can do the shelves.

See you tomorrow.
