Kohler Weekend 2018, Day 3

This is a really great spot, and some place I would love to come back to with a book. I’d like to sit here again for an hour or two, sipping on coffee and just relaxing for a bit.

Adding Supports on the First Floor

Bob was over again for a full day working on the house. I had work work I needed to catch up on, and so I spent most of my time in the office, working on my computer. But luckily, Liz was around and worked alongside Bob to help put in some new support beams on the first floor.

Installing Drywall on the Master Bedroom Ceiling

This morning, everyone was up early in Valparaiso. Julie and Liz were up, prepping for a day of shopping and visiting with Katie. Bob and I were up and ready to head back to Hyde Park for work on the house. Bob and I left around 8:30 AM, and headed to Medici’s for breakfast. After that, we were back at the house and getting to work in the master bedroom.

Today, while Liz and Bob were working on the master bedroom – I worked on cleaning and clearing up more space in the basement. We’ve got a lot of thing stacked up in the front office, and it’s getting near time to move all of that stuff down here (and out of the way).

Cement Pour in Cedar Lake

Yesterday, Liz and I had plans to help Bob with a cement pour over at Katie’s place. The weather wasn’t on our side yesterday, with a ton of rain throughout the morning and early afternoon.

Bob and Tim worked outside in the rain all day, and got a lot of the initial prep work done (framing, laying down a paver base, renting a compactor, rebar). And so the actual work of pouring the cement got shifted to today.
