About 68 yesterday, in the 30's at night.

Now, last week we had evenings in the teens. That was cold. There was even a few times my truck took a few seconds longer to start. That's rare enough that its noticeable for me.

Hahahahahaha no offense, but I have to laugh when people down south think the teens are cold hehe. Last night here in North Dakota it was-10 below, -30 with windchill.

Exactly my thoughts!

And nice work John! Where'd you pick up the skills for doing work like that? Just stuff you learned in younger days or?

Thanks! I've done renovations on my uncle's homes in the past, and completely renovated my brother's house 2 years ago. My grandfather was also a carpenter so I guess it trickled down. About 3 years ago I went to replace my bathroom vanity and it went from that to a complete gut down to the studs(and joists cause the wood was screwed under the tile) and remodel. I did all the tilework as well.

I like taking pictures of progress so I have pics of that too

Before



BLEH!


After



That was the first time I had ever done any tile work in my life

The cool thing about this is that there were 6 empty bottles of Schaffer beer hidden in the walls. I traced the year down to a late 60's bottle they used which makes sence being that my house was built in 1970.

Wow! Nice tile work, you said you did that yourself? First time even? Nice choice of color and style too. I installed a new tile floor in my moms house just last year. Also my first time and turned out pretty good. Really got into doing tile work for a little while there. I just wish I had a better wet saw to work with.
