Life Update, late March

I ate another sandwich today: Chicken salad made with rotisserie chicken, mayo, mustard, relish, celery, grapes, salt and pepper, with lettuce and tomato on a ciabatta roll. And my bathroom passed the first plumbing inspection! Phew. The window install meant for today had to be postponed due to thunderstorms, but they’ll be going in Monday, so no big deal. Tomorrow the electrician is coming to update the wiring in the master bedroom and bathroom (and add a light over my table in our new dining room). There will be lights in better spots and more outlets! (Also, zero scary wires from 1960, so that’s a great thing too.) Once the wiring is done, it’ll be time for two more inspections: electrical and framing, for the room/walls/foundation in general, before the sheetrock can go up. My painter stopped by today to check things out and work up a quote for installing/repairing/updating/painting the walls in the bedroom, bathroom, and hallway, and I’m working on scheduling the tiling for the shower walls and bathroom floor. The new bed is being …

To Do: Master Bedroom & Bathroom

The master bathroom remodel is HAPPENING, and since it’s making the bedroom dusty, it’ll be updated too. (We’re camped out in the guest room for now.) I’ve got plumbing and electrical estimates, a tile plan, and a carpenter ready to help out as needed. I’m going to track things a bit more closely now that big changes will be going on (and since we’ve got a deadline), so I’ve made a list to help me keep things moving… Master Bathroom: Obtain permit from city. Demolish everything! (Almost done!) Install all new plumbing/fixtures. (Got estimate!) Update electrical & add outlets/lights. (Got estimate!) Install sheetrock & paint. Build new shower. Tile shower, walls and floor. (Tile selected!) Replace door, including new hinges & knob. Install new window. (Ordered!) Install vanity with sink & cabinet. (Delivered!) Hang mirror. (Delivered!) Install toilet paper holder. (Delivered!) Hang hooks. Add finishing touches! Master Bedroom: Order new bed. (Piper from Room & Board.) Order new mattress. (Tuft & Needle or Casper?) Install two new windows. (Ordered!) Update electrical, including new outlets by bed. Repair walls, as needed, and paint. …

Master Bedroom: Plans!

We’re wrapping up our living room re-do right now (finishing painting the new built-in bookcases & installing trim and maybe a door), and our dining room is moving along nicely, so later this week the demo on the master bathroom will start. We’re going to also fix up the connected bedroom at the same time, since everything will be dusty and we won’t be able to sleep in there for a while anyway. Here’s the barebones plan of what we’re going to do in the bedroom: We’ve got the wood floor installed and will continue the trend of white walls & trim in the bedroom. We’re going to get the electrical updated (including adding some outlets in the nightstand area and making old ones safer), move the air conditioning vent from the wall into the ceiling, and have new windows installed. One full wall of sheetrock will have to be replaced, since it connects to the bathroom and has water damage (and we might tear down some others for better insulation purposes), then we’ll have …
