It's been a LONG weekend!

View to the left of the door where the
Jacuzzi tub will be...
View to the middle, you can see we framed in the potty room! To the right is where the custom over sized shower will be built.
For this view you will need to imagine a vanity in place of the pile of tools on the right wall near the door.
So this weekend we finished plumbing (THANK GOD!), we re-installed the floor and framed in the potty room all in three days time! If you scroll down past Lance's birthday photos, you can see what the room looked like Friday night before we started this weekends madness!!

Lance's Birthday

I realize I am out of order but here are photos of Lance's birthday from Wednesday the 23rd.
Joy made the cake... man it was good!!!Here's Chef Lance preparing the bacon wrapped tri-tip steak!
Mmmm I'm getting hungry all over again.

Opening presents. I got him a new air hose, it was the wrong one of course :)
The family and friends singing Happy Birthday!
All in all it was a good evening!
I'll post some more house progress soon!

Progress Update for Friday Night

We've made quite a mess tearing down sheet rock and ripping up the floor. Lance has his work cut out for him! Plumbing, oh the joy!Here's the room now that I loaded up all the trash. Yes you can see the dirt under our house! Lance was working on a test wall with some new concrete that is made to go vertical!
That's all for now but we took Monday off work to have 3 full days to work on it. I'll try to update again tomorrow!

Sunday's Progress

Today Lance's dad Bill, came over to help for a while.We cut out the sheet rock that will be in the bathroom so we can replace it with green board.
This is the wall all framed that will separate the bathroom and closet.
Hi Morial!
Here's the wall sheet rocked!

Wednesday is Lance's birthday so I am not sure how much we will get done before the weekend but I'll keep you posted!

We're at it again...

Here is our Master Bedroom pre-appraisal 2005. That door goes to the small bathroom and yes, the plant is sitting in a drinking fountain.Here is the same view of our Master Bedroom a few days ago.
Let the demolition begin... You'll notice the wall missing. Look again at the picture before, the closet hasn't moved... We are opening it up for the Master Bathroom! Gotta love the trash heap... going to the dump is always such a pleasure. LOL!
So this side will be the Master walk-in Closet!!
You can see the frame to the pocket door,
we are trying to save space.
And this side will be the Master Bathroom, we have more than doubled the size of the bathroom so we can have a Jacuzzi tub, over sized 2-person corner shower, a single sink antique hardwood style vanity we bought at Costco almost 4 years ago (yes this August marks 4 years for us in this house) and we will also have a built in linen closet. We also plan to have a separate room built in for the toilet, little privacy is always good!

That's all for now, I'll keep you posted!!
