I've been reminded it's been over a month since I've posted... Seriously I don't know how you guys keep up with this whole blogging thing! Life is certainly keeping me busy! Not only is there Ribbon Jar (yes I'm making sure the orders are filled every day!), there's also the Renovation, making sure our home is running smoothly (my honey still gets a nice meal most evenings, cooking is actually the relaxing part of the day) and I try to squeeze as much time in for family and friends as possible! I certainly hope they don't feel I love them any less because that simply isn't true!
After tearing out the wall between the master bath and the sleeping porch the room felt much bigger but ceiling is low and electrical hangs in the center of room.
The floors had to be torn up to make room for plumbing and the old fir floor would eventually come out of the sleeping porch side.
Then there was the issue of a leaky roof and something they call dry rot... anything but dry and definitely a hassel during our rainy wet winter! That area was in the hall bath; right next to master bath and actually the only bad part in the roof. Brent came up with a brilliant solution to solve roof issue (we can discuss that later)!
New wall between master and hall baths and raised ceilings!
The higher ceilings give the room a much better feel (even for a short person like myself)!
New lighting.... Yippee!
Wall Sconces and plugs go here!!!
The following photos taken with my iphone:
Insulation between bathrooms... New tub in hall bath, electrical and new plumbing!
Sheetrock in Masterbath... I will take real photos soon!
Typically I'm one of those people that adds layer upon lay of wallpaper to a wall... So much easier than stripping it! But with this renovation I wanted to do it right! So I bought myself an inexpensive wallpaper stripper and went to town.
Although there were three layer of paper it came off quite easily.
As I moved around the room at quite a reasonable pace, I was quite smug in my thinking... Why does everyone say this is such an aweful job? They must be doing something wrong ; )!
Seriously... This was no big deal!
All I can say is thank goodness I started with the two rooms I did! The third room was hideous!!! It came off in little tiny bits... My frustration mounted! So much so that I never did get my camera out to share the bits on the floor! No, I just kept plugging along and day two... I had my honey work on the project!
