The Long-Promised Construction Pictures

I'm having a little Open House tomorrow, and I've put together a little slideshow of some of the construction. It's mostly "before" pictures and a few "durings" -- I haven't got the "afters" done yet. (After all, the people who will be seeing the slideshow will actually be standing in the house.) But still... here's what it looked like when I bought it ... and when the contractors were tearing it up and putting it back together again.

Here's the bathroom when it started....





Then the contractors came, and ripped it all out, down to the studs. (And that wall there to the left of the shower door? Gone.)





Actually, I didn't quite understand why they put the toilet in the bedroom, as they knew I'd bought a new toilet to be installed in the bathroom. But they put the toilet and sink in the bedroom anyway -- I think that's some sort of rule about bathrom remodels.

And then, they put in a new shower!



And a new shower floor!



And then, I'd bought this tiny little sink cabinet thing



And I found -- actually "stumbled upon" is more accurate, as I was kinda sleep deprived at the time -- granite tiles for the floor that exactly match the top of that thing. Sweet!



And it all came together in a bathroom ... which I'll take a picture of tomorrow, when it's all nice and clean. :)

Hey that is starting to look good. i see you had those hideous tap handles that hurt your hand AND look ugly at the same time. It was quite a design achievement I always thought!

Yeah the dunny has to go in the bedroom or they cannot work properly. It is the rules.
