With three entire days of uninterrupted work time in July, you'd think I'd have moved mountains or learned the plumbing trade, but instead I finished the hallway.
There was a nice vacant spacet behind a wall that needed opening, reframing, and finishing to make a linen/vacuum cleaner storage closet.
I also needed to create a door frame leading into the bedroom, hang the door, put up a 1/4 mile of ceiling trim, figure out the baseboards, blah, blah, blah.
It was so much work for very little visible progress.
