Moving Fast Now!

The plumbing and lighting is nearly complete. The motor for the Jacuzzi is getting wired in tomorrow. It is really looking great now.

We should be in the bathroom by Saturday. Check it out: Almost Done!

Living At Home Is Such A Drag

We are in full swing on the Master bath project. There are holes in the wall and ceilings. The electrician needed to run a circuit for the Jacuzzi tub motor. As with every utility in this house the connection (electric box) is on the opposite side of the house from the appliance! They fished and snaked and finally got the power to the bath room.

Everything is covered with plastic to avoid getting dusty.

Taking Shape

The master bath project is passing the destruction phase and entering the taking shape phase. The demolition is done. The new circuit for the tub motor is in. The plumbing is nearly complete. Some drywall has gone up and repairs to the rest of the house (to damage done running the circuit) is getting fixed.

I am particularly happy with the new openess of the space. It is a narrow room and much of the space was wasted in dead zones. The new layout has a wider look and utilizes open space for passage while cramming feature into the bath.

The body jets in the shower are set. The tub fill is cut into the ceiling. We are getting the skeleton done.

Yes, I said tub fill and ceiling. Take a look.

Master Bath Project Begins

We contacted Expo and made an appointment with their designer to update the master bath.


Tiling Is Done

The master bath project has hit a great milestone. The tile work is done. We should be in the bathroom by Saturday. Check it out: Tile!


Finally Finished the Master Bath and moved back in the downstairs bedroom.

Tile and Finish

The walls were up, electricity run, plumbing places and now the tile work was dragging on and on.

The Master Bath Project was in full build mode. Living at home was such a drag. Spending our lives upstairs without being back in the East was weird.

The Melchers cleared out and demolition began in earnest! We are on our way to a new spa style bath.

Master Bath

Since we seem to be settling in to Sharon Drive it was time to update one important room. It was still the builder stock bathroom and had the "cultured marble" to prove it. We gutted the master bath and completely changed it to be more like the spa and Sandals bathrooms we love.
