Progress! Day 10

We have some progress now, the mess from the exhaust fan is all cleaned up.  I decided I didn't like the Aqua ceiling paint, so hubby repainted it (3 coats!!!) with white.  Without too much grumbling, I might add!

The vanity and mirror cabinet are installed and lights are working.  So happy with this decision.


The upper cabinet should actually have been installed the opposite way.  However, since it is right next to a wall, the doors wouldn't open all the way.  If we install it so that the doors will open, the matching valance won't match.  Ugghhh.  What to do??? Well, my fabulous carpenter installed it like this (really upside down), turned the valance/light upside down as well and will build molding and frame it all in for me.  I think it will work out just fine.  If I didn't have Scott doing this part of the job, we wouldn't have any idea how to solve this problem.

Another fabulous idea Scott had and I know I will love, is he placed outlets inside the cabinet for us.

Bathroom Reno - Day 9

We did a big clean up of all the junk, old toilets and boxes.  The dumpster is almost full now.

It really is getting to the finish line now.  Big changes today.

I finally got to see my new cabinetry get uncrated.  Been waiting for months and hoping I made the right decision.  I did, we love how it turned out and can't wait to see it installed.

Hubby and I were strolling through Menard's, our favorite home store.  We decided we should purchase a new exhaust fan instead of re-using our old one which was the original plan.  Here is the result.

As it turned out, the old fan was never vented to the outside, so basically it was just blowing air around out attic.  They had to get into the attic and drill into the outside of the house to vent it.  Another delay and big mess, but we are happy to find out now and have it done right.

Most exciting for us is that at the end of the day today, we finally have a working shower.  Hubby won't have to leave the house anymore at 6 am to get to the gym for his shower and to get ready for work.

Bathroom Reno - Day 8 - Grouting

Tile waiting to be fed some grout.
Look at the gorgeous marble threshold!  Love it!

The job progressed today with the grouting of all the tile.  I'm very happy with our tile choices, it came out really nice with just a few items that the tile installer will need to tweak to get it perfect.

Love It!!!  In my best Oprah voice.
