Remodel Part II


OK, I just had to come on here and let you know how interesting these past 4 days have been.  You saw how the guest bath looked after deconstruction of all the old cabinets and most of the linoleum being gone.  Here it is with the new cabinets put in and all linoleum gone.

Please excuse the mess on top of the temporary counter and sink.  We were just thrilled we have a bathroom with a sink at this point.  The orange things are so we can open the drawers and doors.  We have knobs on order and they should be here today.  They will be installed after the countertops get installed.

Speaking of counter tops.  Our guy doing all this work asked us if we were set on the counter tops we had picked out.  We told him we would be opened to something else if he knew of someone.  He gave us a name and number to call.  When I called and talked to the owner of the business, he informed me he could be out next week to measure and then 5 days later to install!  This is a blessing as the company we originally were going with said it would be 2 weeks before a measure and then 4-6 weeks before installation.  So, I took a little trip to the other side of our metroplex (100 miles round trip), picked out some gorgeous quartz, paid for it and was thrilled that it was even a bit cheaper overall than the original company.  I also went to the original place and got a refund for what we had paid for countertops there.  So, this means our bathrooms will be ready for flooring by the end of this month.  I am so happy.

Then, there is the Master Bath.

The cabinets are all installed and the carpet has been ripped back and waiting for the new flooring.  BTW, we have the flooring for both bathrooms.  We just need to schedule the person to lay it for us.  I have no idea why carpeting was thought to be a grand idea to be put in a bathroom/vanity area.  This is not the first home we have lived in that has done this.  I have pulled it out of every one of those homes too.  Little boys and carpeted bathrooms do not mix!!!  Enough said.

Now, many of you are thinking.....Why all the angst?  This is why.

All that 'stuff; on the floor is out of the master bath.  In fact, there are 4 more baskets behind the vanity chair, you can not see.  All the stuff from the guest bath is residing in my craft room.  I do not like disorder.  The older I get the more it bothers me.  This is why the change in counter top companies has me happy.

I talked to the counter top company this morning and asked if the sink cut outs could be finished off so I could use them for trivets or charcuterie 'boards'.  He was more than happy to do that for me.  The original company does not allow you to have any of the scraps.  So another win-win for us.

While all this construction has been going on, I have been the one running all the errands and go back and forth to Home Depot for various reasons.  I have not done one lick of laundry this entire week.  I bet you can guess what my weekend will consist of, right?  I have managed to fix dinner nightly though and today I even made dog food for Luna.  (poor old girl)  

Come back on Sunday and see what has happened in my knitting/crocheting/cross stitching world.

Until next time...........................................


  1. Yay for great service and for finding even better deals and policies.

  2. I have to say, Marsha... after the year I had the second half of 2020 and the first half of 2021, your little piles of stuff in your craft room look extremely tame to me. lol I know it's all a matter of perspective, though. It's exciting seeing your bathrooms be dismantled and then brought together again. And yay for you for thinking of asking for the cut out material from the quartz - and they will finish them off for you, too? Wonderful! Makes me wonder what other companies do with their "waste".


Thanks for stopping by. Please let me know you were here by leaving me a comment or a question. Even a quick hello makes my day and lets me know I am not all alone here.
