Day 474

Saturday | June 15th, 2013


I knew there was going to be construction in the morning. I knew Meow wanted me to be up for some reason and I fought it, in my own way. And Meow fought back, in her own way.

I ended up getting up at 08.28 to let Super Reno-guy in, only he drove off before I could get to the gate. When he did comeback and Meow was back from her errand, I was consulted about two things which I didn’t need to be consulted about because I totally trust Meow’s decisions (here).


I was still a little bitter at being up way before I was ready to be awake and then Meow was going to go shovel up the pieces of our last minute bathroom window along the backside of the house. I shouldn’t let Meow do things, especially the things I said I would do … so into the gap sleepy boy went.

It was an easy task, like it was going to be all along. It was more that we didn’t want a bag of cement sitting around doing nothing and being in the way. I also was unwilling to let Reno-guy do it after all the trouble he caused and all the money he was charging us and being a dick for weeks telling us what we wanted—on top of our very specific choices.


Part of the deal today was that Super Reno-guy would take the bag of cement along with all the other scraps (above). Because of this, I got a broom and really swept up the space and probably got rid of some dog hair in the process.

This Old Hanok

When we had the bathroom done, we wanted to design our own window for the part of the wall which straddles the storage space along the side of the house. This way we could have clean airflow through
