In preparation for the exterior stucco, we need to create a sloped curb at the base of the footings. (for drainage) This is requiring a lot of mortar but we were able to take up some of the “space” with bricks.Now we have a nice sloping curb on the three exposed sides of our house. We are ready for the Stucco guys now. The Stucco will extend down the wall and over the curb.
Unfortunately this is the last big project that I can work on for a while. I have suffered a shoulder injury which will take months to heal. So I can’t really do any heavy work that requires the use of my right arm. Fortunately, our guest accommodations are ready (enough) for visitors. In fact we have had two already.
We now have our rough-in electrical done for the master bathroom.This includes the light and vent fan switch locations and outlets. The vent fan is installed in the ceiling. There will be an outlet underneath the sink for a future recirculating pump that will assure instant hot water without wasting water to get it to the fixtures. Also we will have electric under floor heat. (under the tile). The Plumber will be coming this thursday to run PEX tubing to where the sink, toilet and shower fixtures will be.Here you can see that the shower is all framed in. There will also be a bench behind where Jeff is standing.
7/23/24 Update: After a visit from our friends at Radar Plumbing, we now have all the PEX lines connected to their respective bathroom fixture valves.
