Halfway there!

We're starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Yesterday was the longest day yet. We really needed to get the bathtub up and running so had to get the tiling done in the shower stall. It was a lot of cuts and took longer than we thought but at the end of the day, I think it turned out great. Just the way I wanted it to look. At midnight David got up to wipe the haze off of the tile while Winnie and I were out like a light. We woke up to this nice surprise! He also installed the frame of the shower doors that will go in later.

The mini tiles are little carrera marble subway tiles that you can buy on sheets at Home Depot. I think they look cute and break up the white and grey walls. 

The shower wall also got drywalled. I was worried that it might close in the already very small space but it doesn't. It's actually nice to have the separation from the toilet.

And speaking of toilets...yesterday was also a big day because the plumber came back and installed our new toilet! Probably isn't very exciting to most, but again...when you live in a one bathroom house, things like this are big excitement! Here's a closeup in all its' Kohler beauty.

We'll either finish the floors late tonight after fire works or tomorrow. Then will start again this weekend to install the sink and work on all of the walls. Should be all done by days for the renovation was the goal.

Happy 4th of July!

(Update!) In case we forget why we love our house, especially while's another can see the town fire work show from our yard.
