Until the shower pan comes in, there's not much we can do. Our contractor is going to come back a few times to finish the mudding and sanding on the bedroom drywall and fix up a few other spots so we can repaint the whole thing next week.

When our contractor pulled off the trim in the bedroom, I noticed that it had some writing on the back. In case you can't tell (the photos aren't that great), the top one says "E. Kreutz" and the middle says "326 21st St."
If you reference that old post, you'll note that according to city records the owner of my house in 1924 was Edward J. Kreutz. Confirmation! The address on these boards, however, is that of the house to the south, originally owned by William Schroer, who we surmised owned both lots and sold the second to Edward after building a house on it. What does it mean, then, that Edward's name and William's address are on the boards? Was Edward helping William with the construction? Was this before the two lots had been officially separated into two addresses? I'm not sure, but it is fun to conjecture.
