Yes, we are still working on it, and no I haven’t been talking about it because I am ashamed.
Although we have taken a sort of construction hiatus during the holiday season, we did managed to assemble the room into something resembling a modern washroom before we set down our tools. In its current state it remains unusable due to a leaky fixture on the sink and the general absence of any sort of door, but the floor is down, the walls are painted, the toilet and sink are installed, the lights are on. We still have a deceptively long way to go, and some complications to rectify but I am certain all parties involved have learned a great deal, both about current construction standards, and efficient project management techniques.
Here are some photos during the painting process and the current state of affairs.
Our largest hurdle left to overcome, other than purchasing new sink and shower fixtures, is the construction of the door frame. Due largely to an abundance of inexperience, we have managed to frame the door opening without consideration of side trim pieces to cover the ends of the drywall. We have a plan to work around this issue, we just need to gather the motivation to pull the project to a close.
A visiting, and very optimistic, friend even brought us a sort of “grand opening” gift to be placed in the new bathroom upon its completion, and hand crafted soap and towel stand built from reclaimed materials.
