DAY 26 – Cover Up
PREVIOUSLY – Maine Escape
Yesterday at the Maine Escape the plumbing was getting finished up and we were prepping for the drywall to go in.
PLUMBING – Maine Escape
The Hot and Cold Water Manifold has been hooked up and lines have been run for the following:
- Washing Machine
It’s time to check all the connections and make some copper stems that will connect to the PEX lines through threaded 90 deg drop ears that are mounted to the studs.
COVER UP – Maine Escape
With all the utilities run in the ceiling, I set out to put up the drywall. Because of the moisture, I’m using Gold Bond PURPLE XP in the bathroom. These panels are Mold-resistant, Mildew-resistant, and Moisture-resistant. That the big 3 when doing a bathroom.
HEADS UP – Maine Escape
It was a short day today. Anytime you work over your head for an extended period, it’s utterly exhausting. I gave my arms a rest and cleaned up the worksite. We’ve got rain in the forecast, so I wanted to make sure everything was packed up and undercover.
After that, it’s time for a good long shower and I really need a haircut.
NEXT TIME – Maine Escape
Next time at the Maine Escape, I put in some last minute additions before the walls get closed up and spend some quality time with my son and a cold beer.
