Well, friends, today is your lucky day. A belly shot is nothing if not a progress photograph. And since I have taken over 1,000 photos of our future home (so far), I can do progress.
The bathroom is Ryan’s baby right now. He’s working hard to get it into working order.
Here’s the belly/progress shots of the bathroom over the first 27 weeks:
The tub is in and the main walls are complete. (The walls around the shower need cement board and tile, but that will come later.)
Ryan rebuilt the right wall for a cleaner line by the shower. It’s not ideal to have the ceiling slope in the shower. But it will still turn out well, I think.
Ryan’s also got the dining room ready to paint.
So now I have a lots of rooms to wipe down and paint. I’m way behind in the painting department. But, I hope to make some progress soon – I hope the dining room, kitchen, bathroom and upstairs hall by the end of the month.
In other renovation/marriage news… Ryan has this really
annoying interesting habit of telling me that he’ll need something for the house THE DAY BEFORE HE NEEDS IT. Usually, they are things of which I know exactly what I want. So it’s not that it is hard to decide what I want. But, even though I try to ask what important items he’ll need next, he usually doesn’t actually tell me to get something until he needs it THE NEXT DAY.
Examples – light fixtures, faucets, siding color… and TILE! Which is totally fine except sometimes the items need to be ordered. And special orders can take weeks.
I love my husband – he’s wonderful and hard-working and smart. But he really doesn’t think about how horribly
annoying interesting this is. Even though I try to make it clear. But this time – with the tile – I nearly lost it.
You and I both know that I’ve been very clear about what kind of tile we’ll be going with. Black and white hex tile.
