So far, the remodeling is proceeding without too much trauma. The structural problems I mentioned in the last post on the subject have been repaired (while we were on vacation, so we didn't have to watch). Other potential problems that arose turned out not to be as bad as we thought.
We bought fixtures for the bathroom - sink, toilet, shower doors - and ordered our bathroom tile, which will be a combination of white and pale green that we are very happy with. The kitchen cabinets arrived, and are piled in the dining room awaiting installation. The plumber and the electrician have done their thing - everything's all piped and wired as it should be and the inspectors have signed off on their work.
It's been a little over three weeks but it's hard to believe that I ever had a kitchen or a master bathroom.
Here are a few pictures of the current state of things.
The framing and some of the wiring in the bathroom - the black square in the middle is the fan, and there's a can for a light inside the shower. There's also a coil of wire ready for the vanity light over the medicine cabinet.
Here's a look at the plumbing for the shower.
Here is the cute little radiator they've installed in the bathroom - it's so small!
Here is the plumbing and electrical hookup for our new washer-dryer. The washer-dryer used to be in the butler's pantry that is now integrated into the kitchen; the new hookup is in the second bathroom, the one that (otherwise) is not under renovation.
Here is some of the wiring in the kitchen - cans for floodlights in the ceiling.
And finally, the plumbing hookup for the kitchen sink; there's also electricity for the garbage disposal and dishwasher.
Perhaps next time I can show you the kitchen with some cabinets installed.
