The Gasman Cometh

Yes, we're still in mid-project. I still don't know where anything is. Not so that I can get at it, anyway. And everything we do means we need something else done.

The new kitchen floor is now higher than the floor in the adjoining room. So we need a carpenter to put in a sort of tapered threshold. But the swinging door in the kitchen is attached to the threshold piece that's already there. So the kitchen door needs to be removed and shaved down so that it will fit the new installation. Which means the lintel at the top no longer. . . .

Flanders and Swann expressed it well here:

The hammering, sawing, sanding, painting, etc. means I get to the computer only intermittently to check e-mails and The Inn remains largely neglected.
