Mickey the Great has just left. He came over today to install the drain for the toilet, shutoff valves on all the pipes in the bathroom and drill a hole in my brick house for a bathroom vent. All the while recovering from the flu. He is altogether deserving of any praise I can heap on him. Thanks Mick! I owe you big time!

Now that Mick has done his job, it’s time for me to take over. Tomorrow morning, I need to go and buy a door and try to install it, so I know where the drywall will end. I also need to buy one piece of cement board, two pieces of greenboard and tile for the walls. Once I get the door in, I can finish drywalling, then start taping and then tiling. It’s a lot, but it’s getting so close to the end that I’m starting to get excited.
