Roundabout San Diego

with Beverley and Alex

At work in the bathroom
We have come to the end of our latest remodel and I couldn't be happier.

It was a long job but we were lucky to get the help of Klaus a few times.

Boo really enjoyed going beneath the house whenever possible, especially when the big light was used which she turned into her personal tanning booth.

Klaus was around to help Alex install the new pocket door after yours truly painted it.

Check out the new shiny copper pipes - who knew we would end up having 'bling' under the floor boards?
image

Here's Boo again - I think she might be overdoing it a bit. Maybe we should change her name to Boo Hamilton?
image image

This photo shows the top part of the solatube which Klaus helped install. The solatube gives the bathroom a lot of light without having to turn on the electric lights.

Our brand new floor boards - wonder if Alex accidentally boarded in Boo.
image

All I had to do each night was pour these guys a beer and serve a plate of food. Not a bad exchange for a new bathroom.
image

Here the sub floor is going down.
image image

I guess Boo wasn't boarded in after all. Here she is distracting Alex from whatever he should be doing.

The shower unit is really beginning to take shape now. The shower pan has been set in concrete and the moisture barrier tacked up followed by the cement board.
image image

The dry wall is now up and ready for mudding.
image

Once again, Boo wants to be in the thick of it. Here she is helping prime the walls.

Since these photos were taken we've installed a new toilet, towel warmer, and mirror. Alex tiled the shower walls and floor, grouted, and sealed it all. I will post the final photos soon.
