Life is not only about hard work. Fortunately, the weather brought to us Sun, Warm and Colour! Now is the nice time to be outside and enjoy the flowers, birds chirping, bees buzzing and relax.
After framing is done the next step is to build the water and sewer piping to laundry and bathroom. The most time consuming job is plumbing. To trace all the pipes, to choose right connectors, to solder them, and to fit all that stuff to appliances is quite a project.
Compare with the plumbing the sewer is kind of relaxing and enjoying process. Just measure, cut, glue and vu à la you have it done.
It was necessary to relocate some existing pipes, such as furnace exhaust, to make then easer creation of the bulkheads.
The most challenging and tricky part of framing is building the bulkheads. All of the home communications such as water, sewers, power cables, telephone lines, ducts, central vac pipes etc. are located under the basement celling, this is why to cover all that stuff the patience is the most desirable character trait. It is time consuming job. Most of the time it is not strait forward project. Pretty often it takes time to make a special design to solve the problem.
My post “One year project” is about very special subject. I was doubt at all to show it in this particular place because here most of the people are interested in the poetry, literature, history, photography, philosophy, culinary, nature, entertainment, etc. However, some visitors showed interest in this topic and asked to continue publishing. It is the reason of my next post. I am not going to load all of the visitors with detailed guide how to do it. I only would like to place some pictures about what was done and how it looks in progress. It is just very brief set of pictures even about framing.
With that purpose, to save the time for visitors who is not really interested in that subject I put all of the pictures in gallery where you can see all of them in a small size at once. For those who is interested please click on any picture in gallery and follow by arrow to watch pictures in bigger size one by one.
Because of pandemic we are closed in our small area. The feeling is a little bit close to claustrophobic and there is nothing new to show to my audience. This is why I decided to show what I’ve been doing for almost one year. This project was done in my spare time like evenings, weekends, some vacation, etc. All jobs were done by author of this post except electrical. Perhaps I will show in the next posts the details of all steps – framing, plumbing, drywalling, plastering, painting, ceiling installation, trimming, etc. I am not professional contractor. Whatever I do is just one of my hobbies.
At least you will know a little bit more about person you are following, putting likes and comments for my humble photo projects. I am not speaker, not writer and cannot write a lot of words. The only thing how I can express myself is stuff I can do by my hands and imaginations.
All the pictures have been made from the same point of view before and after renovation. Thank you for following and kind comments.
I really hope this terrible time will pass and all of us come back to normal life. But for now it is very important to stay calm, safe and healthy.
I would like to wish to all of you to stay safe and strong!
The first of December brought to us a nasty weather. Freezing rain made an Art view around. Thanks God it was Sunday and nobody had to drive somewhere to avoid the slippery road conditions and put themselves in danger.
