I'm sure this is a dumb question... but are you certain that's old termite damage? I hope you are treating the ground around the house with termite poison just to be safe, otherwise all your new work could get eaten away again in short order.

just got through doing just that. yesterday one of bobby's friends showed up at work. he's an exterminator. gave me some heavy duty shit to spray. i soaked the bathroom especially the hole in the concrete for the shower drain.

ok. we are finished for the night. you can see in one pic the termite treatment sprayed vvvvery generously around the hole in the house slab for shower drainage. this weekend while i was trying to not get mauled by go kart kids paul put in the shower wall framing. then the framing on the wall behind the commode/vanity wall. the pipes made him do the jigsaw puzzle 2x4s then tonight i re re-wired the ceiling circuits to facilitate our needs. paul did decide to go with a wall mount light like i had hoped he would.

Looking good.

Question: Those cut up vertical pieces seem to be supported only by the connection to the existing drywall and a little cantilevered action from that stud to the side. I don't really get it. Are they just something to hold the drywall/hardi screws for the new wall? Or are they supported by something solid that I can't see?

Yeah, I'm sure it's fine. Not the way I'd do it, but the house isn't going to fall down or anything.

actually it is a load wall now that i looked at it again but one stud isn;t going to make that much of a difference. but like you said glatt, the house isn;t going to fall down.

ok time to do some electrical work. remember to always make sure the circuit is off then verify using a voltage tester. most know this but the black wire is your HOT wire and the white one is the neutral. the bare wire is the ground wire, or sometimes it;s green. oh, and when you do test the circuit you should have somewhere in the neighborhood of 120 volts. on this circuit i have 121 but that;s alright.

after striping back the insulation on the wires you then twist them together. black to black white to white ground to ground then use wire nuts on the hot and neutral. it;s always good practice to then seal up the wire nut with electrical tape.

sorry for the somewhat fuzzy pictures. my crackberry is overdosing today.....

the cut outs for the fart fan and a/c duct were a tad off but will be alright because of the flanges on the vent covers. then in the back there is the shower light. the fart fan is on it;s own circuit because i did not want the fan to suck up steam from the shower since it;s not venting to anywhere but the ceiling. i know i know....i tried to tell him. vent to outside but eh.....anyway.

the garage let alone the house is a disaster area right now. here is the new vanity that we are installing. picked it up on what ladies?? yes, we picked it up....on sale! $100 bucks.
