It's Done!

Well, there is some painting to be done still on the trim around the window and the baseboard. But it's fully functional, and Thomas has "moved in." Yeah!


Here's the before picture:



And several after pictures:




Eddie had to special order the mirror to fit the space, and then install the light above it.


Thomas loves it, and so do I!

Baseboard and Trim

Eddie bought and installed the toe kick (or whatever that piece of board is called) to cover the gap between the tall cabinet and the sink cabinet. He needed that in place before he could put the baseboard trim in place.


He picked out a faucet which I really like. It sticks out far enough into the sink that your hands aren't hitting the sink bowl when you use it--the faucet in our basement half-bath is way too short, so I think we'll be replacing it with this kind.


This is where the new toilet is going to be.


Then he put trim around the window and created a sill for it as well.


This is the shower curtain, plus you can see some baseboard trim.

I like the shower curtain hooks I found at Target--they have a hook on both the inside and outside of the tub, so the liner and curtain are hooked on separately. The hooks also aren't circles--you can just pull them off if you need to, and not slide off all the ones in front of it.


And the toilet is installed and functional! Yea, I guess we need to go get a toilet paper roll hanger, plus towel bars. But that and painting the trim is all that remains!

Door and Cabinets

Eddie installed the new door for the hall bathroom yesterday. He had to make some adjustments to the door trim because the wall was only 3 inches deep instead of the 4 inches allowed. (I think that's what he said.) And on the inside, the trim had to be cut down because the door was too close to the corner. It all looks good--just needs to be painted.


The new hall closet still needs to have sheetrock hung. View is from the hallway.


The handles need to be installed on the cabinets.




This is the hallway-side of the door.

Latest Work in the Bathroom

Sheetrock for the ceiling.

Eddie had to add pieces of lumber in the corners to be able to install the sheetrock.

This is where the linen closet was in the bathroom before, and now it will be opening into the hallway instead.

First coat of mud.

More Work on the Bathroom

We kept working all weekend, and here are some of the pictures to show what was involved. First, the cabinet, sink and toilet were removed. Then the tile on the walls came down.


More tile in the shower.

The wall boards were removed, exposing plumbing and wiring.



Then the floor tiles had to come up. I got assigned most of this job. I don't know why I can't get the picture to rotate and stay that way!

The tub was removed, not very heavy considering it was iron with enamel.

A look at the tub plumbing.

Eddie had removed the flooring that the tile was mortared to, and replaced it with new subfloor.

There was a wall here between the tub and closet. We took it and the frame for the doorway out, so we'd be able to bring in a new-construction, one-piece fiberglass tub/shower.

And there it is, temporarily in place to check measurements for the wall to be replaced.
