Tile is Done

The tile work in our master bathroom is finally complete! It’s actually been finished for a week now, but I’ve been traveling. Want to see it?

Since this photo was taken, we’ve installed the shower heads and hung up a curtain in order to begin using the shower.

This shower is awesome!

What’s left to do?

  • The countertop will be installed tomorrow
  • Order custom glass for the shower
  • Purchase and install a toilet
  • Paint the floor vent
  • Paint and rehang the door
  • Finish trim work on the cabinet
  • Add shelves and towel bars, etc.
  • Move in
  • Enjoy!

Our bathroom should be completely functional within the week. Cue the happy dance.

Master Bathroom is Prepped for Tile

Our master bathroom is prepped for tile! After many delays from our contractor (who is really great, by the way), he and his crew spent the majority of the day prepping for tile to begin going in tomorrow. Here’s what the bathroom looks like at this very moment:

Yay! It may not look like much today, but it really is. The final tile was selected today, so I’m finally ready to share our choices.

The first tile will be used as a mosaic in on the back shower wall. Photos do not do this tile justice as it is gorgeous in person. The second tile was chosen by our contractor. I don’t know that I would have picked it out, but I think it’s going to look great. It will go on the bathroom and shower floors. The third tile is a plain, white ceramic tile that will cover the remaining shower walls in a brick pattern. It will look something like this:

Tile work will begin tomorrow and wrap up sometime next week. We also found a solution for the countertop dilemma that I can’t wait to share!

Bathroom Update: Plumbing is roughed in!

I’ll be honest: progress has been slow on the bathroom lately. Between trips out of town and sickness for both of us, the bathroom has taken a bit of a backseat. If you’ll remember, our most-recent, ambitious to-do list looked like this:

  • Remove the sheetrock damaged by the mirror.
  • Patch all the sheetrock.
  • Remove the laminate floor.
  • Plumbing (we have a good friend who is a licensed plumber.)
  • Electrical (Travis is a licensed electrician.)
  • Prepare the wall for the medicine cabinet.
  • Call the tiler to ask a few questions and schedule tile work.

Yep, we were only able to mark three tasks off of our list. We were initially hoping to have the electrical and plumbing done in one weekend, but we’re happy now to just have the plumbing roughed in.

Travis ran into a few snags with the electrical, and #longstoryshort we removed ALL the sheetrock in the room, including the ceiling. We are also in the process of selecting a new mirror. I just wasn’t happy with the medicine cabinet options available. I need to select a new mirror this week in order for Travis to set sconces and receptacles on either side of the mirror.

Travis has the can lights and the exhaust fan set and is wiring them tonight. We should have light again soon! He will still have to set and wire the sconces and receptacles, and then electrical will be done. We have a call in with the contractor who is doing the tile work, and we’re hoping to get him to sign off on our new tile choices and let us know a date for installation.

Our to-do list for the next couple of weeks looks a little something like this:

  • Finish electrical.
  • Remove laminate floor.
  • Sheetrock walls and ceiling.
  • Have contractor build half wall and tile.

We’re hoping to have a completed bathroom by May! Fingers crossed!
