|Looking up at the joists in the second floor bathroom.|
So, first thing was first, taking down the ceiling.
And we almost finished but we forgot to drill a hole through the last part of the two pieces of wood and since we had already bolted in the 8 other bolts, that joist wasn't going anywhere. Sigh.
|Ripping down the ceiling|
|And some more|
Easy, peasy. The second part was a lot trickier since in some parts of the joists we would need to put a bolt through three pieces of wood (the original joist, their patch job and our sister joist) and of course, because nothing is easy, our drill can only make it through two pieces of wood.
|Ryan drilling the hole in the first two pieces of wood that we will then drill through the sister joist.|
So, Ryan's off to buy yet another drill (we have atleast two now) that is longer so that we can drill through the three pieces together. Oh well, atleast this week is a productive one.
Clearly, I forgot to take a picture of the finished product but once we get our new drill and finish the other joist, you'll get to see the exciting, finished product. Oh, no? Joists aren't that exciting to you? Yeah, me either but atleast I don't have to fear for my life every time I shower.
