The electrician went one extra step and asked Albert for input on the master bedroom wiring. For a small fee, the electrician added track lighting to our dark bedroom and tons of wiring on the wall opposite the bed for a fancy new flat screen TV. Our remodel will take us from one TV to two (don't be impressed, we have two iPads, and six computers--we are not lacking for online entertainment). In my whole life though, I have never had a TV in a bedroom and have been pretty negative feelings on the whole subject. However, lately, I have been wanting to get a fix of True Blood or Dexter and I can't with a 13-year-old-boy sitting next to me on the couch.

We now have hot mopped tar shower pans. This guy explains the process really well. It is a stinky, smoky procedure. It is nice to NOT be home during this stuff. But this is what makes a shower water proof.

And finally, we have a new roof on the addition which is an extension of our existing tar and gravel roof. Tar and gravel are not used anymore. Tar and gravel flat roofs are explained well by This Old House. We have had our roof re-roofed once. The work was smelly, nasty and dirty plus our neighbors complained that it was smelly, nasty & dirty. It is a relief to have a roof and windows on the addition as rain is predicted for this week.
