The one week mark

It’s now a week since the bathroom construction started. It would’ve been done by now if BathFitter had ordered the right bath tub, or realized they made the mistake because they had weeks to do so.

The contractor seems to be making good progress. Unfortunately for him, he can’t finish up until the bath tub is installed. But he’s doing other stuff.

He set up electric. Now, by the door, there are two switches for two lights: one above the vanity, and one between the shower and bath tub.

He recessed another switch that’s behind the door for the fan, heat, etc. Before, it was sticking out and you could see where the wires were going up to the ceiling.

He lowered the separator, which will be at the foot of the bath tub (when it arrives).

He cut the wainscot, which will be the bottom half of the walls. It should go up tomorrow. The top half will be painted light blue.

And he cut, patched, cleaned and sealed all of the sheetrock on the walls and ceiling. Everything needs to dry overnight. That’s why there are fans on.

Onto better things:

Yeti enjoyed celebrating Hanukkah. This was her wrapping up the holiday last night. She wore a yarmulke because she’s liberal.

And this is her behind-the-scenes grooming. Casey wasn’t so interested in celebrating. Very disappointing.

Instead, this morning, Casey went for his annual physical and got a good report. He tried to be brave.

I’m also going to try to be brave, hoping this whole bathroom brouhaha is over and done with this week.

Something to add? Disagree? Let us all know!
