My wife's parents live in a house that is over 100 years old. Over the previous year or two we had installed a new electrical service, all new wiring, and most of the plumbing. The back porch had been exposed to weather for years, and a leaking washing machine only made matters worse. We had to jack up the rear of the house and replace the two main beams that had almost completely rotted away. Then we built a new floor and bumped the bathroom out to the porch area so we could move the washer and dryer indoors. We completely gutted the old bath, and moved another wall out so the appliances would fit. After cutting out all the old cast iron plumbing, we started building the new bath.
I built all the cabinets using cedar my father-in-law had been
keeping as firewood from his days at the mill. Considering the
little strips of wood I started with, we were quite happy with
the way they all turned out.
Thanks for visiting!
