This week's projects at the lake.
There were several things that we needed to repair or demolish at the lake house.
One was the "soft spot" in front of the AC unit in the laundry room. From what we can tell water was coming from the old AC unit and getting the floor wet. This eventually caused the subfloor to breakdown. Once the flooring was removed, the subfloor was very easy to remove. It practically fell apart in my hands. Scarry!
After removing the old floorboard, we needed to add boards to support the plywood and flooring.
We also took up the floor of the back porch. The plywood was starting to break down and some had already fallen through. Two of the support beams need replacing because of rot as well. Our next trip to the "city" will include a wood shopping trip. The repair will include new railing, flooring, sun shade, and overhead light.
The big project is removing the old shed from the backyard. It has started to rot at the bottom of the supports. The plan is to remove the old shed and vent pipe that is no longer used. We will continue with renovations and improvements to the backyard.
Trees were trimmed by the front of the park (B1 and the lakehouse). The limbs had grown out into the road for row A and some other limbs were low enough that it was difficult to mow under them. This was a job that was hired out. It really looks nice.
Monday we have a trip Clovis to get wood, flooring, and other supplies. We will then have what we need to finish up the back porch at the lake house. Next, we will start on the flooring changes and repairs in both houses.
