Dead space comes alive
22 September 2009 Leave a comment
Last week I had a bit of a lull in the projects and was able to relax some. Things have been busy again this week though as I work on both second floor bathrooms. This work included my first attempt at soldering copper, which failed — not miserably, but enough to require the assistance of a plumber in the end. Some work with drywall and paint was also on the docket.
I’m also adding some built-in storage. I really dislike dead space in buildings. Sometimes it’s inevitable, but in most cases it can be turned into useful storage. And more good storage also, in my experience, means that less square footage is needed for the same function.
I’m filling dead space with the same boxes I used for my wife’s yarn storage. Instead of yarn, we’ll be filling these with towels.
