Bathroom Update

Progress on the bathroom: As per Christine's request the walls are now painted a light green.
This is the corner where the sink will be, as well as a medicine cabinet and mirror. The vanity light is mounted, but the glass shades are at my moms house getting a custom mosaic job done.

The chandelier and crown molding is also installed. The color combo wasn't exactly what I was expecting, but it doesn't look too bad. When everything is done, the colors in the floor tiles will help tie everything together.

The most recent addition (today) is the subfloor. It took about 250 screws, but it is now firmly installed and ready for the next several steps:
1. Primer.
2. Heating cables.
3. Plastic diamond mesh.
4. Primer. (again)
5. Self Leveling Cement.
6. Thinset.
7. Tile.
Its going to be a lot of work, but in the end it will be a really nice floor that should last a long time.

Attic Floor

Now that the holidays are behind us once again, its a good time to start rolling on some of the projects around the house. It seems like the "stuff" that we store mysteriously multiplies overnight. I think if I had a hidden camera I could catch our Christmas decorations, Halloween decorations, you name it, cloning itself and doubling in volume. I decided I better try and combat the problem to free up some room so I can actually get some work done. I started installing flooring up in the attic so the "stuff" has a nice new place to live.

I have been getting some work done in the bathroom as well. The walls are all primed and waiting for paint. While I'm waiting for some money to fall out of the sky so I can wrap this project up. As close as it is, I still have to dump a decent chunk of money into paint, flooring, doors, trim, vanity light and a medicine cabinet. Here is how the wall niche/shelf is looking:

And in this corner is where the pedestal sink will be mounted. Above it will be a corner medicine cabinet and the vanity light.
And the bedroom ceiling is patiently awaiting the stained glass dome. You can see the light box is complete, just needs a coat of paint.
