Much flailing about with destructive implements occurred this weekend.
Y’all might remember this second kitchen thing…it was carved out of an old screened-in porch or mudroom.
Plans call for it to be a utility/mud room but back with the rest of the porch…so another wall had to go.
In the 97 degree and 90% humidity of east Texas, I went to work.
The wall is gone. Got floor repair to do (fortunately part of the wall was covered in the same tongue and groove so I have material). I will have to rebuild the exterior wall for that segment as well…it’s not really framed in…it’s on the old porch rail and is not very stable, though this addition has been there at least 50 years. The window is moving as well.
The exterior wall rebuild is on the slate for next weekend.
We are trying to get the utility room in so that we can install a new hot water heater and new plumbing associated with it. There is a leak somewhere in the old hot water heater plumbing and I don’t want to waste the time/effort fixing what I’m replacing anyway. The old one is improperly vented as well.
Sooo…some insulation…a water heater closet…some vents and stacks…some electric…floor work…plumbing…maybe a little roof work…and that durn carport…(and the beat goes on and on and on and on and on and on…)
