I’m getting really excited about the master bathroom as we get closer to completion. It’s looking SO awesome.
This week David got quite a bit done. His completed list includes:
- Painted the ceiling.
- Painted the woodwork.
- Installed the cabinet.
- Installed the countertop.
- Installed the sink and faucet.
- Permanently installed the light fixture.
- Installed the mirror.
The light fixture was a bit of a problem because it was a tad longer than the 48″ it was supposed to be. When David forced it to fit, it caused an unsightly little crease on the bottom center of the fixture. To solve the problem, he notched a little bit out of the drywall on the window wall. That solved the problem and the crease disappeared.
Things like this happen all the time. Products aren’t the size they’re supposed to be or walls aren’t square. When you’re remodeling a home, whether new or old, you have to be prepared for anything and everything.
David was originally planning to use granite tiles for the countertop but he saw a piece at Lowe’s for $70 on the clearance rack. He thought he could make it work. He considered it but didn’t buy it. When he went back and it had been marked down to $20, he couldn’t pass it up. He was able to cut it down with only one small seam.
The bathtub/shower is ready to go. We tried it out the other day by giving the grandkids a bath. It worked great. I love the hand held shower head. It makes everything easier.
David also picked up and installed the mirror. He had the mirror made at a local glass company.
In the meantime, he also replaced the horrible light fixture in the office:
And he removed the rickety, rotten wooden shelving in the basement.
See you next week.
