The right hand side of the East end will be used for utilities entrance panels and such. So there’s no window on that side for the bathroom.

We ran out of Tyvek tape (which is GREAT stuff, by the way… So we will finish taping the window on our next trip. The Lowes Housewrap held up very well through the winter, with no signs of fraying or tearing.

The next step is to install the French Doors. Before we can do that, though, we needed a work platform to help Tara and I lift the door into place.
There was no way we were going to be able to lift it all the way off the ground to the floor level.
So here we built an 8′ x8′ work platform, and sat it on top of the porch piers.

It’s amazing, all of the extra work you have to do to be able to work on your own. Here is the finished temporary platform. It should come in handy while cutting siding, too.
