Gutting a bathroom

Funny how I wanted to start this blog to chronicle my writing career, yet I haven’t posted anything about writing yet.  Oh well.  At least I’m posting something every day, so far.

I’m so happy we’re getting back to our remodeling job.  Starting this afternoon, I plan to tear down the old plaster walls of the bathroom so we can put up drywall and get it fixed up.  I still don’t know what we’re doing for the bedroom, but man o man I have visions of this toilet closet (yeah, a sink and a toilet and you’ll have to go outside to change your mind, but still).  We have the tile flooring (bamboo motif), we’re getting the sink and faucet this weekend, and Mom’s getting the counter for us.  I have the paint color picked out, so after the demo of the existing walls, I can go get the drywall and the paint, and get this sucker done!

The room’s small enough, that the real grunt work should only take a day or two, plus all the drying time for the different layers (drywall compound, primer, paint, floor, grout).  Extreme Home Makeover speeds we are not.  “4” rooms: living room, bedroom, two bathrooms, and we’re only a little over half way done in coming up on two freaking years!

Course having a baby in the middle of all that slowed production considerably, but still.  Feels good to be working on it again.
