Bathroom Remodel: The End Is Near!

The shower area was finished (except for grouting) today:

These are the walls and the border/accent.

Bathroom Remodel: Day I've Lost Track: Tile!

Miguel built us little cubbies for shampoo and stuff.

This is the shower pan. We went with something that had browns in it to draw from the browns in the tile and to break up the, well, grayness.

Note how Miguel did the tile work there. Grout line dead center meeting a 16″ piece of tile. And then those intricate little pieces moving out to the edges. He thinks about this stuff all the time. We sits around at 3:00 am and draws out designs.

He started putting the tile on the floor today, too, and actually got about half the room done.

Notice how the tiles aren’t complete along the wall. They’ve been cut. That’s because Miguel couldn’t figure out a way to have the room be symmetrical without making crazy, intricate cuts like this. And so the other side of the room (where I’m standing) will have identical cuts along that wall.

The end is in sight. I’ll buy a vanity tomorrow or Wednesday, and it and the toilet will go in super-fast.
