Chest-deep in Reno-land

Originally uploaded by triviaqueen
So, we are on day two of bathroom renovations.... more surprises than I would have liked, but not wholly unexpected.

Almost everything in this photo is gone or going (the light fixture remains but we have a replacement and the near-useless "razor only" outlet is staying because there's no real point to remove it).

We are installing a new 6L tank toilet and a smaller basin and vanity plus a new medicine cabinet that will give us some more space in the room. We have also torn out the very ugly tile around the tub and are putting in a tub surround. Last but not least, we have torn all the crummy peel-and-stick tiles off the floor and put in ceramic tiles.

I'll show off some "after" photos when everything is done.

Of course we have both been sick, Hubby is much worse off than me, and Kiddo, who is at her Nana's while we tear apart the house, has been feverish on-and-off for a couple of days now. Ugh.

Hubby and I are off work all next week.... hopefully we can get well enough to salvage a day or two and enjoy the new bathroom.

The ony home project worse than ripping out the bathroom is ripping out the kitchen. It's all worth it in the end though. Feel better!
