Bathroom is, mostly, done!Posted: June 1, 2011
Two weeks of cabinetmaking, three days of getting everything out and new stuff in. Amber and I are both extremely thankful all are parents could come up to help. Her dad painted three rooms, ceilings and trim too – and my dad helped with all the bathroom install stuff, which got more than a little time consuming and funky at times. And a plumber friend of mine came over to change out the toilet flange in the floor. And of course the mothers and soon to be mother kept us fed and made sure we did basic things like sleep and sit down.
Being a small bathroom meant it was always pretty damp after a shower and the air had no place to go. A good part of day one was cutting a hole in the ceiling for the new fan / light / heater.
At around this time we were visited by the Lukasik family, who were in town moving their oldest son into a new apartment. Aunt Sue was sure to tell me she was an avid reader of the blog, so I promised a shout out. ‘Sup aunt Sue!!
I still have a few things to do. A big one is making the cabinet doors and drawer fronts. The vanity mirror needs a matching frame to go around it, and the new light fixture needs to get put in, as well as the electrical for the ceiling fan / light / heater. Add some small stuff like toilet paper holder and trim paint then it’s done.
