And People Say I’m Dense

Work continues on the bathroom floor. I was hoping to have a progress report and show some pictures, but surprise, surprise, things are taking longer that I thought.

In the mean time, here is a comparison of two joists. One is an 1895, old-growth redwood joists from the bathroom. The other is a scrap end of a redwood 2X12 I got from a friend who works at a mill. The 2X12 was milled about a month ago. Can you tell the difference?

Oh yeah....huge growth rings.

So....second drain under the tub for the "overflow"?
