Slow guest days gives me an opportunity to do a little maintenance in the private baths of our Joseph bed and breakfast. Today's mssion was to replace a ceramic cartridge that was causing a leaky faucet. An easy job for a professional plumber.
After I enlisted Heather's aid, it only took us only an hour. Heather hanging on one end with a wrench and me applying a little muscle. What a sight. . .
While up close and personal with the sink, I noticed that it's time to replace the sink caulk. I decided, "Why not replace the caulk on all three sinks in the upstairs guestrooms?" Another simple job that only took two hours, and I only have a "little" repair work to do after one of my tools slipped. . .
Keeping up on maintenance in the guestrooms is an ongoing effort. It's a lot harder in the summer when our bed & breakfast is so busy. During the winter, I have the time to make a permanent repair.
After nine years, I'm very pleased with how well the rooms appear. It's a compliment to our guests and our housekeepers, and the contractors who renovated this old bungalow nine years ago.
