    Furnace still down, waiting for a part. 51 deg in the house! The good thing is it is too cold to get ripe, no hot water either.

      Ugh - that doesn't sound good Rolf. Prayers that your Furnace part comes in soon and you are back up and warm soon!

          Had about 4 layers on and worked on the room below 50 in there. By the time I was done I was down to two t shirts I was sweating so bad.
          They say between 8 and 12 tomorrow for the fix, the part is in.

          This really makes me appreciate how difficult it must have been in the really old days no heat no power tools and they still turned out magnificent work.

          Off to take some motrin and put my feet up.

            This home improvement adventure has taken on a life of its own!

            But how nice a hot shower will feel once the furnace is up and running, and the room is sure to look fantastic once it's completed.

              "Adversity helps us appreciate how great it is when things go right!" Amen to that.
              Part is in service will be here between 8 and 12. 51 deg again this morning. Actually I am amazed at how much heat the house retains.
              We have 24 feet of window in our great room that gets the afternoon sun so with a small heater it was reasonably comfy in that room yesterday.

                I am betting that as soon as the heat is back on the outside temperatures will warm back up. I learned a hard truth about DIY home repair and improvement. That is; the only real 5 minute job is writing a check for someone else to do the work.

                  I am soooo glad it is you and not me tackling a project of this magnitude right now. And you are doing it with such grace!

                    YEA We have heat! I also figured out why they changed the floor joist direction in on section. The adjoining room is the main bathroom, so to support the weight of the tub they had to run the beams perpendicular to it.

                          Finally found a treasure,if you want to call it that. Three beer bottle caps in the wall. Black Label Beer. That would explain why everything is crooked. The sub floor is almost done, just a couple of small pieces left. Next is ripping out the drywall and then wiring some new lights and outlets. And of course installing the new window. Bottle caps.jpg

                            Shame on you! That is no way to shim things....but emptying the bottles might make the job a little less work.

                              HMM never thought to use them as shims.

                                Been following your adventure Rolf! One finds some interesting things when tearing into older buildings. Some are readily explained. Some, not so much. Always fun to speculate.

                                Enjoying the journey so far. Can't wait to see the finished product.
