Mudding, Part II

The mudding is pretty much done now.  These pictures are from Wednesday.  Dennis came yesterday (Thursday) to finish off sanding.  We're excited to paint, although we know that once the project is handed over to us, we have a lot of work to do before we can move upstairs.  We are also waiting for the plumber to finish plumbing the shower and bathub.

Yesterday the gang was back to start on taping and mudding the upstairs.  (Alistair was excited to see Chris, Brian, and Dennis and to give Conrad a dog biscuit.)  Above is the bathroom.  You can see the two circles for the scones that will be on either side of the vanity mirror.

Above and below are photos of the master bedroom.  You can see in the photo above where the old kitchen cabinets and the two recessed lights were .  Below you can see the old wall around the laundry room and square where the light fixture was.

Below is the new family room that used to be the living room.

Bathtub Installed

Shawn and Chris installed the Kohler Archer bathtub.  We decided to splurge a little and buy a whirlpool.  We're looking forward to having a relaxing bath after all this work is done.

While we were in Chicago for a few days, Shawn finished plumbing the bathroom and Chris hung the drywall in the old living room, the bathroom, and our bedroom.  Now that there are proper wall, we really have a sense for what the space will be like.  The bathroom is definitely bright.  Even with the blue board, it is super bright.  The back ordered drain kit arrived today, so Shawn is planning on installing the tub tomorrow.
