Bathroom: the slideshow

Here ’tis. I think Carolyn’s kept you all up on the details.

jQuery(‘#ngg-slideshow-38510a72fe0df884a85706bd21023ee7-20217255120-image-list’).hide().removeClass(‘ngg-slideshow-nojs’); jQuery(function($) { jQuery(‘#ngg-slideshow-38510a72fe0df884a85706bd21023ee7-20217255120’).nggShowSlideshow({ id: ‘38510a72fe0df884a85706bd21023ee7’, fx: ‘fade’, width: 600, height: 600, domain: ‘http://www.janefancher.com/HarmoniesOfTheNet/’, timeout: 8000 }); });

The little piece in the tub was actually one I added. It’s so small, the tiling guy just assumed we’d fill it in with grout, […]

leak check….


Mural grouted—check.

Paint touchups—check.

Towel bars, shelves—check.

TP dispenser leveled—check.

Curtain hung—check.

Hey…we’re almost done!

We now have a working sink, a working shower…I can get back to my real work!

We’ve still got a few things to finish up…most significantly the edge of the counter and the quarter-round baseboard, which will be pretty […]

Three overpaid plumbers…0…

Two old ladies willing to think outside the box…HOME RUN!

At least we think. We can’t actually do a pressure test until tomorrow, but (knock on wood) I think we got our tub problem solved. The big hangup was the fact that the tub’s “waste” plumbing was right over the joist. The builder cut a […]

I didn't really intend...

to replumb the tub today, but…

It started out pleasantly enough….a soaky bath in the tub admiring the tile and the pretty lights trying to warm up sore joints to tackle some of the little things…like putting up towel racks. I turned the thingamajig on the overflow that’s supposed to life the plug…and it came […]

I’ve always wanted to try grouting…

I’m now officially cured of this insane desire.

Our lads who were doing our tiling did a fantastic job…and took way longer than they anticipated when they gave us the quote, thanks to our changed design, so I said blythely… why don’t you just leave the grouting to us. I mean…how hard can it be? […]

We have floor!

Whew. The glue took forever to cure…I think the cool coming up from the basement slowed it up…but the floor is down and Carolyn’s bright idea of putting an outlet up for use on the sophet/shelf has been realized complete with a switch down where we can get at it. thanks to that I’ve got […]

The undocumented hazards of extended…


1) Your hair turns into straw from the dust.

2) Your fingernails are ground down to the quick.

3) You begin to have very strange dreams about … lumps.

I thought I was done. The tile was gone and the wall repaired, electrical boxes were moved and expanded, the too-thick mudding around the tub […]

Christmas is coming down…

We were going to leave it up and enjoy it a couple of months, but that was before we started the bathroom. It’s just become too much visual chaos, with the stuff all over the bathroom and the bathroom stuff all over my bedroom, so…it’s comin’ down.

Between empty boxes and tissue paper, Shu is […]

New Years Res:

Never get the DP a key element of a renovation project for Christmas.

Will this bathroom never be done? :face:

Seriously, if you wonder why I’ve not been posting, it’s simple: I have no words. I’ve always had a problem with nouns…but they’ve all gone away. Case in point: I went in Monday to make […]
