Good space, just full of junk, ugly tile without grout, oh and there was a giant hole under the tub that the cats used as easy basement access. Does all of this sound kind of chilling? Yep, cold actually.
First all the junk was either thrown away or relocated to another junk room. Yep, we have another junk room otherwise known as the basement. That is soon on the clean out agenda. Ted cracked up the ugly tile and tossed it into the trash.
Then a trip to Home Depot for the tub of my dreams. It not only has jets to soothe my aching back but it keeps the water warm. Oh, I may never come out.
We had to have the toilet that never ever needs plunging. I think plungers are disgusting. Shouldn't all toilets be plunger free? Ted had to have the one with the quiet closing lid.
We both agreed that our bathroom needed radiant floor heating. That was a no brainer. A thermostat that can be set to have warm toasty floors when I get up for work at o dark thirty. Soooooo necessary.
We weren't very pleased with the vanities that Home Depot carried so we went on over to Lowe's. Sink, granite top, backsplash and vanity all in one and on Clearance. YES!
Okay, now this is where we had words. I wanted slate. Ted kept reminding me just how difficult slate was to work with. I know, I know, but I waaaant slaaaate. I did start to whine a bit. It was worth it, I got slate. Now that I said that, there were times in the next few days when we were laying the slate that he did remind me that "You just had to have slate". Yes, it was a bit more work. I have never laid slate tile before. Thank you internet. Information super highway to the rescue. A whole corner of slate tile for the floor and tub surround. Boy was that heavy.
First the window had to be replaced. It now opens. Imagine that. A new concept. No more air flow. That is unless the window is actually open.
The tub looked a whole lot littler up on the wall at Home Depot. The box was hugundis. We had to take it through the dining room.....
and into the bedroom. Can you see how low the ceiling is? Oh my goodness. Is it going to fit into the
junk I mean bathroom?
The bathroom project has been going on for a few weeks. We keep working and are now seeing progress. But did the tub fit?
