Remodeling, Again ...

Last week our little EJ was up to some no good in the bathroom ... the ONLY bathroom in our tiny little house. Well, he ended up flooding it - really, really bad. I am sure you are pondering, "Well, just how bad was it?" Well, I'm gonna tell ya ... It was so bad that we absolutely must replace the sub flooring (located under the tile) and the sink base cabinet (the entire bottom fell out of it in pieces). Our bathroom was WAY, WAY overdue for an update so, we decided to go ahead and remodel it. I found new flooring I like, new sink base and vanity, new mirror, new light fixture, new energy efficient window, new wainscoting, chair railing, base boards and paint. I did not select a new toilet or tub since I think they are in good shape.

However, JP disagrees with me. He found the following photo of the toilet he'd like us to install. Of course this will never happen as I think he already spends WAY too much time in the bathroom. (click on photo for a better view)



  1. Well, I guess that's one way to get a new bathroom :) Happy remodeling! Again!

  2. Oh wow! That is certainly a fine mess, but oh the beauty of it when it's done will be worth the mess in the meantime. How long do you suppose it might take to complete it all?

  3. ESML,

    Yes, it is a mess. But, as you said, It will be worth it. Tuesday was spent ripping everything out. Wednesday was spent repairing/replacing sub flooring and moving the sink/vanity plumbing, and intalling/moving electrical for new lighting and outlets. Today, Mr. P (yes, we've hired him again - the quality of his work is superior) is laying the new floor tiles and hopefully will make it to some of the wainscoting. I hoping it is finished by the end of this coming weekend.

    I'll post photos when it finished.

  4. I am sure that I am speaking for all of us when I say that I hope that we will be able to see pics???


  5. I have a gift for you over at my blog...

  6. All I have to say is "should we expect anything less from this God-Gifted child?" You are an amazing woman and have the patience of Job.

    I love you and can't wait to see pics, as already stated by another.

    Mr. P should be bringing you some things I sent with Mrs. P today. Look for them tomorrow when he gets there.

  7. Charmin,

    You KNOW he's just like his daddy!

    Mrs. B

    P.S. - can't wait for my goodies ...

  8. Sorry you had such a big mess, but it sounds like it will be a beautiful new bathroom really soon. The picture is too funny!
