The master bathroom that we added as part of our remodel, ahem, two years ago has finally been transformed into a for-real, useable bathroom. It is no longer a book storage facility and the world's biggest cat litter box room.
Way back when the plumbing was roughed in, the tub was installed, as was the sink cabinet and sink top. I painted the walls a nice cheery butter yellow. Then it sat there for two years taunting me as we tried to find and hire a competent tile installer. So finally, we found one that *gasp* returned phone calls, and *gasp again* actually showed up to do the work. Hurrah!
Now I'm shopping for some good new herb plants to put in the garden window above the tub so that it will be easy to take herb-scented soaks. Ahhhh, such a wonderful option.
The shower is in a corner and we're debating on whether to install a shower door or not. Not much water gets out, and where it gets out is all tiled anyways, so maybe we'll skip it.The tile we chose is a kind of barely peachy mostly tan/brownish color with a fossil leaf or ammonite imprint on the decorative tiles. I love how calm the color of the tile makes me feel. It feels really great on my bare feet too. I was really impressed with the tile dude, he did a great job and I'm so glad we didn't try to do it ourselves. If anyone reading this is local to Santa Cruz I'd definitely refer you.
The race to finish the whole remodel before the permit expires is on! There isn't much left to accomplish, but it all has to get done or we won't pass final inspection and I really really don't want to pay those permit fees again.
