We are still in the midst of remodel madness, but everything is really starting to take shape. A little visible progress is what gives us hope in the midst of the dust, the noise, the disruption.
The tile is all done for the shower. It looks beautiful. The MR splurged on a special drain that simply disappears into the wall with a “V” center section. It’s pretty slick.
So now we need the showerhead and controls to be installed, and then the glass surround would be nice.
Our new counter is in. It’s similar in shape and size to the last one, but we’ve traded one drawer for five drawers plus two large end cupboards.
In here, we need countertops, sinks, faucets, a mirror, two pendants, and lovely tile to the ceiling.
On the other wall, we’ve have one tall and deep cabinet. We’re still needing a decorative light, a shelf, a heated towel rack, and a bathtub in the corner.
Now shall we move to the other end of the house? The laundry room has all the cabinetry installed. It looks gigantic; I’m going to need a really tall stepstool.
What’s left to do you say? They’re going to build a box for the washer and dryer to sit on to make room for the dryer venting. In this way, the appliances can be moved back in line with the cabinets. We have a sink and counters to be installed, and then my days at the laundromat will be over.
The butler’s pantry looks amazing. I really like the dark wood. It may be the closest to being finished.
The wine fridge and extra fridge are on back order. We need a brighter light, a countertop, sinks, and some tile, and we’re done.
Speaking of done, the workers have finished their work in the kitchen. Yes, in the kitchen; I know you’re surprised. We replaced the backsplash with some mosaic tile. We’ve gone from plain to color, texture, and beauty. Sometimes it’s fun to have a little sparkle. It looked a little busy at first, but when you add in all the everyday stuff it’s like it’s always been there.
Big things are in the mix. I’m looking forward to the finishing line.
As I write, we have guys installing a new door in the laundry room, someone measuring for the shower glass, another guy servicing the boiler, and the cleaning lady whisking away the dusk. We are a veritable hive of activity.
Spring is in the air; things are looking up. Hope they are for you, too.
