Clauss House Projects

We've (mostly Carleton) been fairly busy working on projects around the house. What we thought would be a 5 day thing, tops, turned into a couple weeks...let's start at the beginning. Carleton pulled the toilet up in the master bathroom then saw it was leaky and black underneath. Great. That meant the flooring had to get ripped out, Phillip came over and worked his magic (no idea what happened except it was pretty loud and some of the floor was replaced, end result: no more mold, we can start the project again). Carleton eventually got the rest of the flooring done and was able to tile most of the floor while I was at my shower in Greensboro. Way to go, honey! The first picture shows how much he'd done before I left for the shower and Auxilary training that morning. I was gone from about 8:00am to 5:00pm.


And the mostly final product...of course we cleaned the thinset off the baseboard and had to put quarter round around the entire thing along the baseboards.

Needless to say, I'm very happy I no longer have to walk all the way down the hall to the guest bathroom 6 times/night to pee!

This past Saturday we worked on lots of projects, one of which being this:

Staining the back porch. I actually did most of it, but Carleton started and finished it.
