After Work on a Rainy Day

I was all set to eat dinner yesterday evening at Starbucks free on my birthday reward when I received a text that our buddy who helps us with things was coming by to put the master bathroom vanity in place.

Mind you he wasn’t coming to hook up the water just get the monster set in place so we can move more easily in the bathroom.

The back and bottom of the base cabinet must be cut out for the pipes and drains to be encased.

The back and bottom of the vanity are solid wood so a bit of sawing is necessary to accommodate the roughed-in plumbing.

The plumbing is roughed-in for the sinks but he'll also have to make the heat vent work under the cabinet.

There is also a heat register on the floor under the cabinet that needed to be taken into consideration.

The marble top with sinks attached is malingering in our bedroom.

First The Viking and Charlie carefully lifted off the 2-sink marble top and laid it nearby.

There was a lot of measuring but no cutting.

Then The Viking made measurements and determined he needed to bring plumbing valves before he could set the cabinet fully in place.

The consensus is that the black trim is staying.

We’re all wondering if the black trim needs to be removed or if it is a spacer for the marble top.

Happy birthday to my favorite niece who shares my birthday.

Do you have a nickname for favorite people?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.
