$work had me tied at home today – some cables were being moved around, so I had to disable check-ins for all of the distributed nodes to avoid data loss. As a result, I got slightly active on the list of outstanding home improvement jobs, and tackled one of them.

The work isn’t finished, as those boards are only held together with friction. Tomorrow’s work will include making blocks to tie the pieces together with, and anchoring the wood to the floor and wall in a manner that makes it easy to lift the ‘lid’ of the boxing to work on the piping. I’ll also be hitting up a lumberyard on Monday with the aim of getting a plank that’s 22mm x 250mm to finish the boxing in front of the sink, and behind the toilet. It’ll then need some paint – either varnish or gloss white, I’m undecided.

Boxing… pipes that is.
