I have not posted in a while, but this does not mean I have been idle. After finishing the oak table for my son, I built a similar table for my Dad from the same oak that came from near his childhood home - he loved it.
We are also doing a bathroom reno, so as those who have done these types of projects well know, this takes lots of time. I am doing doing most of the work myself, except the plumbing, electrical and tile, which I am subbing out.
|Phase 1 - this is the framing for the new wall which will become the new bathroom wall|
once the old one is removed. Half the work was re-working the hardwood floor pattern.
|The new door (right) and hall closet framing to make room for the bathroom wall move.|
Phase 2 - Now that the wall has been moved and the room next door finished, time to start destroying stuff in the old bath which will be a complete gut, and the wall on the right removed to reveal the new wall behind it.
|The before picture before Team Destructo showed up|
|Lots of dust as the drywall comes down, help from my two sons|
made this light duty and they had a ball destroying stuff
|I avoided the heavy lifting!!|
|Starting to clean up from a dirty day - we removed 650 kilos of|
material that got hauled to the dump.You can now see the new wall on the right
which makes the bath 15" wider.
|The drywall installed - now the fun part begins with taping and sanding.|
The recess for the mirror is roughed in.
|This end will be a full walk-in shower with a couple|
of niches and a seat - long ways to go.
|Couldn't have a project without a woodworking aspect!!|
Here's the vanity I made to replace the 20-something one.
Turned out pretty good, it's made from Teak.
Off to Cincinnati... can't wait!
