Don't you just love remodeling?  The way it takes over your whole house, makes everything dusty and dirty, sometimes making your husband a little grumpy?  Don't you LOVE it?  {insert sarcasm here}

Our upstairs hallway has looked like this since AUGUST!

And we are only remodeling a bathroom!!  I know....seems like a long time for a bathroom doesn't it?  You should probably know that we live in a 100 year old house.  That explains a lot, doesn't it?? No?

We have learned through our 15 years of owning this home, that no project, big or small, goes as planned.  What always seems like a simple, straightforward project always ends up being something completely different.

With this bathroom...imagine our surprise at finding a 3 inch thick concrete floor that all of our plumbing pipes ran through.   That's right, not under, not over, but through concrete.  We were already going to replace the plumbling from the basement all the way to the 2nd floor, but this made things extremely complicated.  Add to that uncovering a brick chimney under one wall.

So it was stripped down to the studs, new wiring, new plumbing, new walls, new concrete board, new floor, and new bathtub, sink, and toilet. Whew!  And we aren't done yet!

We are getting close!  We painted this weekend, and got the new floor in.  Now Husband is working on trim, then on to the fixtures.

Can't wait to show you the finished room.  Hopefully we'll be done soon!  Until then, we'll just keep living amongst the tools and dust!
