    Went to Menard's to look at a few things. Didn't see a window the right size unless you turn it on its side. Need one about three feet tall and five feet wide. Its really more like three windows together. Put plastic on the inside and outside along with the blinds and an old blanket for a curtain and its still drafty. Maybe some caulk would help. Think I have some next to the screwdriver and tape measure I can never find. Saw the foam insulation but it was only 2' squares and they want $6 a piece for them.
    They have baseboard heaters but it says 240v and they wire in. No good place to put it anyway.

    Our drywall should be finished tomorrow. Am very excited to get the bathroom all put together once drywall is done. And the pile of fixtures and vanity out of the living room. Then another one to do, might put this one off for a bit though, maybe next winter, or call the contractor.

ID:	1287851 They are doing the concrete now. Don't know how long it takes to cure? Slept in my recliner last night.

    My walls look like somebody painted over chip board. Confederate grey. Pondering if there is insulation in the garage wall. Outside wall is concrete on the bottom and doubt it has any. Some day I will get a new window.

    So they came out today. Wrapping up after seven hours. Still a hole in garage floor. The award goes to what they discovered. Instead of the line going straight out under the garage and driveway to the street it makes a hard right and goes under the house to the half bath and then out. The floor drain forms a Y and chokes down to meet it. Now to make a permanent/proper repair they have to come back tomorrow and dig up the floor under my bed. Haven't cleaned under there in a long time.

    How do these guys do any business? Called them out Friday. They camera the line and say they will write an estimate. Monday comes and no word. I email the office and no response. Then just now find a text on phone from an hour after the Monday email. Gives a link to a written estimate from SUNDAY. ???? Sitting here waiting to hear from them and they act like they don't want the $$ Signed the estimate digitally and now waiting on a text to see when they can come out. Can't wait to have garage open and torn up for a day or two while its five degrees outside.

    We have friends with a bathroom like that. The whole room is basically a walk in shower with a toilet and sink in it.

    might work better if you light more than 4 of them too

    Haven't tried that (yet). Willow does a dry salt rub and we cook it empty.

    Looks great! Do you put bacon on during the grilling?
