It is just off-putting to be put out of your comfort zone and out of your own bathroom and I have to say it’s been taking it’s toll on my mental health which is iffy to start with! I have been so antsy and uncomfortable not being able to shower in my shower or use my bedroom all day, I know I’m bug-eyed and high strung. The workers themselves have been nothing but nice it’s just their constant banging, machinery whirring and their actual occupancy in my house for 7 days running with one weekend break has been stressful.
We’re in the homestretch now and I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Thank goodness. The tiling itself is done and it now just needs to dry before it can be sealed and caulked on the tub edges. The glass man came to measure and will be back to install the door and windows. Then supposedly just the last plumbing work is left to do. That includes the shower heads, controls and the finishing of the Roman tub hardware.
I’ve learned from this project that if I ever do another project I would want drawings of all the particulars before I even start. This is the only way to go for someone like me who needs to see what my choices will look like to make the actual decision, knowing I have to live for life with these decisions and being such a perfectionist.
I’ve since heard a commercial of a Remodeling company that does just that, they come out to your home and draw your project on a computer so you can actually see everything in advance, visualize everything you are going to do. It’s hard to imagine a project when it’s just “ideas”. Whereas, if it is drawn up on a computer in a few different configurations before the fact and agreed upon by all involved I believe it will lead to less misunderstandings and give more clarity throughout the project.
Hopefully, the last few details will not take long to do. I’m waiting for a washer in the mail that the plumber dropped from the Roman tub workings then he can finish up. I’m waiting to hear about the glass-door installation and after the final sealing and caulking, I believe we need to let it dry another 5-7 days before use. So, it still sounds like almost 2 more weeks before it is actually finished, but with a minimum of actual work and stranger occupation!
I do like the tile work, what do you think?
