Sometimes you don’t foresee things that should have been done the first round and we have learned from our mistakes.

No one needs two bathtubs. Let’s repeat that: 2 bathtubs aren’t necessary. When we have friends stay over, we are using my office as a second bedroom. This means the bathroom in that room turns into the guest bathroom where some washing will happen. We realized that the tub is pretty useless and a shower would get much more use. So the time has come to renovate!

Along with the upstairs bathroom, our second bathroom downstairs has had some problems. For about a year now the tub has been unusable. The thermostatic valve started seizing up and we didn’t think much of it. Well, it turns out that there was no way to fix the build up of water gunk that was happening in the pipes. On a plumbers advice, the only way to fix it would be to rip out the wall. Well, why not do a full bathroom gut at the same time?

So we took the plunge and we are starting renovations. As of February 24, we are officially having the contractors begin and our new bathrooms will materialize.

This is the downstairs bathroom. This will still have tub.

This bathroom is upstairs and we will NOT have a tub anymore, it will be converted into a shower.


Demotion Completed!

The demolition has been completed and the two bathrooms have been completely gutted. Now the fun begins and they begin rebuilding!


Bathroom Update

The work has continued and things are looking amazing. Some delays may be on the horizon, but we'll see!

This is the tile behind the bathroom wall. Love love love. The design is created by the diamond shaped tiles.

This is the upstairs shower tile. 

Renovation Update May 16

It’s been a while since I have posted an update for the renovation. Unfortunately with the shutdown of industry due to COVID-19, it also meant that we were delayed do to logistical issues. Our downstairs bathroom is almost done. The bath and shower (minus) glass can now be used and I am taking baths. We are waiting on the sink to be installed and vanity lights to be delivered.

The upstairs bathroom is delayed due to the delivery of the vanity. We are waiting for that. We do have all our toilets working and our master bathroom has not been touched so we haven’t been inconvenienced at all.

We are also waiting for some lights, some woodwork and a new kitchen faucet. All of these things will be done as they get delivered.

The last step will be to get a new couch. It will be great to have a couch I find comfortable to lie on... and as of last night soy sauce also splashed across one of the cushions.
