Time Line... WHAT TIME LINE???

BATHROOM UPDATE~ we're STILL A WORK IN PROGRESS with our bathroom renovation! Our mantra for this house is "It's taking a lot longer than we thought!" We demolished our bathroom in mid-May, and we're still not finished! We are doing a lot of special things to add charm and function to this bathroom that you'll see in the "After" pictures. (hopefully will be done to post pictures in a couple weeks)

For a sneak peak~ here's some of our "in progress" pictures.


This bathroom was a total gut job. It had 1/4" drywall that had cracked over the years of foundation shifting and from the previous post, you can see that it had many other issues.

Kirk installing the new mold & mildew resistant drywall.

We also did all new insulation, which none of the walls previously had. Can't wait to start seeing the savings in our electric bills with all the work we're doing in the areas of energy efficiency!

This is my (Teri), special project that I am single handily constructing- the custom shower stall. Well, I'm doing it all myself, except for updating the plumbing, Kirk did that part for me. I, however, framed out the entire custom shower stall, poured the pre-slope shower pan, did the membrane, then the mud floor, did all the walls, and constructed this corner bench and a couple special shower niches. Thank God for DIYnetwork and several other resources I've used to learn what do do and how to do it right.

I am currently in the process of doing a custom tile job that has been a blast to do... it's just "taking a lot longer than I thought!" As of today, I am half done and hope to be done within two weeks. We'll see!

Ahhhh.....progress! WE are talking about remodeling our TWO bathrooms at the same time as we will change the floor layout of the two rooms. Ugh! Remembering that we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us!

Wow! You are amazing! I hate remodeling... wish it could be done in a day. Since it can't, I refuse to do it at all.
