Done, just in time for Thanksgiving

Done, just in time for Thanksgiving
Old Bathroom
We finally have our home back.  Several weeks ago, we redid our guest bathroom.  This was mostly done in a week, but we had to wait for a few finishing touches.  While we waited, the guest bedroom was a mess with all the bathroom stuff strewn about.
During the bathroom redo, the main water shut-off valve broke.  It took an hour for the township to shut the water off from the street.  In the meantime, there was a bucket brigade from the blown valve to a sump pump on the other side of the basement.  The bucket brigade saved any major damage, but the carpet was toast, and it took a week of fans and dehumidification to dry out the basement.
While we were waiting for the basement to dry out, and for new carpeting, and for a few bathroom finishing touches, the Townhouse Association decided it was time for our unit to get a new roof and gutters.  Because of the pounding on the roof, we were warned to take down all pictures and take breakables off any shelves.  For the next few weeks, we had pictures and tchotchkes off the wall and on the floor, a guest bedroom strewn with bathroom stuff, an unusable guest bathroom, and a musty basement waiting to dry out and get new carpet. During this time we had people on the roof and around the upstairs windows, carpet installers (apparently carpeters is not a word...it should be) in the basement, and contractors in the guest bathroom.
Finally, just in time for our Thanksgiving feast on the Sunday before Thanksgiving, the roof and gutters were done, new carpet was in the basement (and much of our upstairs while we were at it), the guest bathroom completed, pictures and tchotchkes were back in place, and the guest bedroom cleared of bathroom stuff.   We had a boatload of friends and relatives for the annual feast and the house was finished and back to normal just in time.
Carpets are boring, a roof and gutters are just a roof and gutters, but here is the bathroom upgrade.

  5. I love everything chosen! Was your old floor a linoleum that's meant to look like tile or was it actual tile? We have two bathrooms here with similar floors and I'm wondering how hard it would be for us to tear it out ourselves and replace.

  8. Very nicely done. I know the pain of the comings and goings of all the workers. I so remember when we had our master bath redone in granite. Took forever, but it was beautiful when they were finally done.

    Have a fabulous day. ☺

  9. It's always a pain but the finished product looks great. I'll bet you're glad to have all those workmen out of your life.

  10. Sounds like a nightmare while it was going on. Phew but it sure was worth it and was finished in time for the gathering.
    I love those bowl sinks.

  11. I have to agree, it looks beautiful! Glad it all got done in time for Thanksgiving. Now don't get any ideas about remodeling the kitchen just before Christmas...it'll never work out!

    I'm curious about the new bathroom floor - is it wood, tile, laminate, vinyl planks?

  13. Very nice. Remodeling can be brutal. It's remarkable there wasn't bloodshed.

  14. That is quite a change! I think I like the floor part best. Who cleans the sink?

  15. It looks great! What a nightmare though. But it must feel pretty good now.

  16. Very nice! We had a new microwave installed last Wednesday. I suffered the same "hurry up and get out of my house" anxiety even though total time elapsed was under an hour!

  17. Looks good! Kinda of good to get everything done at same time between roof and remodel. Now hopefully peace and quiet for a bit.
