When you have a lot of goals, you might as well start as early as possible! That helps explain biking to work in freezing weather (this week will be even colder…). I’ve got two ‘irons in the fire’ for rental properties, using very little of my own money (because I don’t have much to invest right now).
We decided to start working in the wood stove room this weekend. We’re putting up the stone surround for the wood stove. No more cement board in our living space! I spent about two hours today with my brother-in-law installing three courses of the tile. We’ll give the thinset mortar one day to cure before we start on the next courses. Hopefully by the end of the weekend the stone work will be completed. Trim will have to happen at some point in the future.
