Phase III. Family Bath.b.

Since we did more ripping apart of ye ole Humpty Dumpty House this past year (year 2!!!) than putting back together again, we are down to one bathroom for the three of us for a while. Yay.

Bustin' ass here working on getting this guy up & running b4 the Winter break...
at the same time as this guy...
and a little of this.
Ambitious? Of course.
Aim high.

We'd like to thank our friends, for allowing us the space/time to be completely head-embedded-up-ass involved with House and still be our friends. We know we've neglected you for the sing of the tile saw, flaked out for Roxul insulation installation, and out our own painting as priority instead for helping you with yours... we're selfish pricks. Thanks for being our pals anyway. <3

Next Up:
Plumbing. Plumbing also going into the Basement @ the same time (no progress pics of that folks... still looks like a Dead Zone). 

We chosen some interesting options for the bath... used to be that "interesting" yielded kickass innovative results, but confidence is shaky after 2 years non-stop snot-dripping ugly-bawling House renovations (not gonna lie, us poor saps need a capital H-holiday). 

Bath/Shower: modern style tub with side-mount faucet & shower-ring. We've done the whole shower-ring with a clawfoot thing, and despite being mildly cumbersome it's worth the vintage-feel (and style over those awful plastic surround-shower inserts any day). Will it pull-off the kickass vibe without the essential vintage element of the clawfoot tub though? We'll see...

Walls: 3/4 wainscoting. We have plotted to overrun this house with wainscoting. Will the added character make up for painting out all the original woodwork for you folk who wagged your finger @ us? Honestly... in another 5 years, when the bulk of the work is complete and the level of awesome blows your mind, let us have another little conversation about that, shal we? Mmmmmkay ;)

Lighting: Still sussing it out... but bustin' brains o'er here to do that fast (need the electrical in b4 walls go up!). Droolworthy lighting link.

Heated towel Bar: because we are little pussycats and like a warm towel in the winter. It's the little things. If it was new-build, we'd heat the floors. It gets cold way up here, folks.

So... pulling it all together? Only one way to find out. Giddyup.
