I’ve come to the conclusion that I am failing as a homeowner. It’s a big house, and there is always more maintenance to do. It’s time to set some priorities. I should be able to handle painting and light carpentry.
Things are going to change, starting today.
Ages ago, the master shower sprung a leak. A small section of the kitchen ceiling was damaged. After the leak was repaired I fashioned a wooden access hatch to cover the hole. I would have said it was for easy future access, but it was really because I didn’t know how to work with Sheetrock.
The hatch was damaged in the Great Ice Dam Incident of 2015. It became an ugly hole in the kitchen ceiling.
Today I say “No more!” I am a healthy American male with tools and time. I will not let plasterboard defeat me.
(Plus it was an excuse to use a Sawzall in the kitchen.)
Stay tuned for mud and paint. How hard can it be?
