Progress on the Guest Apartment

    The walls are being tiled.  The young men I mentor are learning to lay tile.

     The rooms are getting a fresh coat of paint.

   The closets were removed to be repaired and tiles placed on the floor.

     The bedrooms are finished.

Repairs to Guest House

     The supply line to the toilet became brittle and broke in the guest apartment.  Nobody had been in the apartment for several weeks.  When we discovered the leak the damage was already done.  The linoleum floor tiles all lifted in 4 rooms, the bottom of doors were water soaked and separated, the closets were damaged at the bottom, and water marks were left on the walls.

     The apartment was gutted and we began repairs.  The first thing we done was to replace the floor with ceramic tiles.  Pictured is a section of the design in the floor.
