Day 25

The bathroom is 75% finished. I can't believe how beautiful it looks. Today, the carpenter reversed the door so it won't bang into the washer.

He put up the mermaid and King Neptune towel hooks.

And the toilet paper roll holder. A no brainer as to how to put the toilet roll on the holder. Though The Young One pointed out, they most likely won't replace a roll out of sheer laziness.

The contractor is working hard to have the bathroom pretty much ready for my dad's 90th birthday party on Sunday. The plumber will connect the sink tomorrow and the electrician will do his magic on Saturday!
Having the sink in the bathroom connected will be convenient. Otherwise, there's a pump of Purel on the vanity or guests can wash their hands in the kitchen sink. Having the electricity connected will be a nicety though at this point not necessary. The party will be in the afternoon so there will be plenty of light. We've been using my battery powered Ott Lite at night which has worked out quite nicely.

A working toilet and a functioning toilet paper roll holder make the room company ready. Looks like I might be taking a trip to Bed, Bath and Beyond tomorrow night to get a couple of fancy hand towels.


  1. Yay for progress! It looks beautiful, and wow, an electrician who works on Saturday? You're blessed!

  2. So much for not looking... I'm obsessed with status updates! :)
