Remodeling sucks

Just under a year ago we moved here and we were able to buy at a crazy low price because things were messed up. Some things we have been able to fix ourselves but others we needed to hire someone. The worst area of the house was the master bathroom so for the last few weeks its been in progress. Its definitely nice to be able to have things customized just how i like it but its also tedious making all these decisions and watching the bill go up and up and UP!

The shower that was there was falling a apart, it didn’t look all that old but it wasn’t installed or sealed correctly so over time it ruined its durability. So I decided i wanted a different type of shower installed and a wall built to separate the shower and tub rather than have a gap in between. luckily the tub was fine it just needed to have the enclosure fixed and cut back. There also was only one plug and since the vanity i am putting in is 94 inches long i felt like it should have 3 so he added 2 more for me (gotta have enough for the clairsonic, straighteners, dryers, maybe my phone lol). There was no vent so i am having him put one in. I actually found a super cool one that has bluetooth and can play music which i thought was kind of awesome! There were no working lights so I had to get a new set of vanity lights and a regular light. One of the windows was placed weird so that had to be moved. There was no storage so i am going to be getting a linen cabinet to make room for towels and various other things.

 

Here is what the bathroom looked the first time I saw the house. Its a mess, but other than a good scrubbing it stayed this way for almost a year… we used the tub as the sink lol…
