photoblog365 - Looking Up

by Bob Rosenberg April. 05, 2019 144 views

I'm going a different way with this one. Instead of focusing skyward, I decided to focus on improvement - as in, "Things are looking up". We have a few months long remodel going on - both bathrooms, master bedroom, and laundry room. After weeks of tear down, underfloor plumbing, and inside wall electrical, the project is finally entering the "installation" stage.

Master bedroom.  We went from a flat ceiling to a vaulted one.

One HUGE benefit:  We have a shower right outside the garage.  And with the only source of running water in the house being the kitchen sink, this is a life saver.  :)

That is a huge "looking up" project, especially changing the master bedroom ceiling. Don't forget we will need to see the after photos as well :)

Thanks Camellia, will do.  Likely not to be finished until the end of May.  The last step is the most inconvenient one - moving all the furniture out of the house for a week so they can resurface the hardwood floors throughout the whole place (new stuff being installed needs to be matched to all the existing stuff).  Luckily, we'll be out of town at about that time.  Hoping the schedule all comes together . . .

Good luck Bob, I've been there. Sometimes it feels like eternity before life can back to normal. But I do know that once it's all completed there is nothing better than that feeling. It almost feels like having bought a new home without the extra headaches that goes along with the purchase of a new home.

Thanks Camellia.  Photos of the completed project will come once this is done.  So far, it really hasn't been bad.  We have one working toilet in the house, and a shower in the RV out front, and our guest bedroom will go untouched, so we have a place to sleep.

The camper is a real life saver, I'm sure! Best wishes for a successful completion!

Thanks Sherry.  We had all the "common rooms" in the house done a couple of years ago and loved the work they did, so we brought them back for the rest of the house.  Also, we belong to a horse camping club and, after deciding we have too much "life experience" to sleep in a tent, we bought the RV.     grinning
