Renovation Realities

So progress has been made! Here is what the bathroom looks like now! You can see the plan here, and the material selection here. While the cabinets, sink and painting still need to be completed..the shower works! A working shower is kind of a deal breaker for me. A makeshift shower was in use prior to our arrival and well, I wasn’t to keen on trying that out. I’m a little spoiled, what can I say?

I’m thrilled with the way its turned out so far and can’t wait until the bathroom is finished!

The tile work is completed and the cabinets come in next week! On Friday, we went shopping for curtain fabric. I will be making curtains for both bathrooms while I’m here and I’m excited to get my sewing machine fired up.

I just love the new shower fixtures! The large rain shower-head is awesome and so relaxing! There was seriously two water temperature settings prior to the renovation, scalding and cold. Now that we have this new thermostatic shower mixer, we can preset the temperature we want and then turn on the water. I recommend a thermostatic mixer, especially with kids because you will never have to worry that they turn the water on too hot. Another convenience, a built in shower niche for shampoo and soap.

So this is the fabric for the curtains and the paint selected. Making progress…choosing is always the easy part. Back to work!
