Bathroom update (Saturday)

9 Mar

I guess this is day eight — they started last Friday, but had a couple of days off this past week. So the new target completion date is this coming Friday (3/15).

I took it upon myself to finish skim coating the kitchen wall (just to get it done so I could clean the kitchen). I just need to give it a quick sand and can paint it tomorrow.

I’m hoping they’ll be taking care of the butler’s pantry wall tomorrow.

They look to have made a lot of progress in the bathroom today — the sub-floor is in around the toilet and tub and the framing is in for the new wall in front of the vent pipe and around the toilet — I couldn’t really get a photo of the toilet cubby (nowhere to stand), but it looks really neat!

The guys weren’t here when I came home, so I don’t know what’s next on the agenda, but it’s great to see so much progress today.

In bathroom related news, I went to Ventfort Hall in Lenox today — one of my favorite house museums — and took a tour that brought us into a ground floor bathroom (bathrooms on the mind, me) that included (as did all the bathrooms in this house) a tiny recessed light powered by METHANE gas that the architects/planners/homeowners (Sarah Morgan, sister to JP) had installed to recycle the methane gas and provide a little eternal flame. What???? So weird, so cool, so needed in my house.

Here are the latest snapshots:
