Step Away From Food: Bathroom Remodel, Weeks 3 & 4

Week 3 of our bathroom remodel (yes, that's right. The job they told us would be 3-4 days, has come to this point) was really not newsworthy.

Tallying it up later, I concluded that I only actually had contractors in my house for 6 hours, the entire week 3. SIX HOURS. That's not even a full day of work.

We complained to the contractor -- who got attitude and told us "he was trying to finish it".

bull. pucky. BULLPUCKY!!! If you were trying to finish it -- you'd have guys here for more than 6 hours in a week.

Unfortunately, said contractor is still holding most of our stuff for the bathroom hostage...so firing them isn't really an option.

Week 4 actually made some progress (noted in the images below). I got a painted ceiling, painted walls, and beadboard put up.

Note there is no:
- flooring
- vanity, vanity top, sink, or faucets
- outlets
- lights
- shower head
- toilet
- baseboard or chair rail
- also note that my stupid-expensive-bathtub is FULL of construction supplies. nice. real nice.


Contractor claims his guys will be back on Wednesday of week 5, to install flooring. What I'd like to know is why we can't install lighting, chair rail, and shower heads while we're waiting on the flooring to arrive. :P

This is easily going to be a 6 week project, if not longer. *sigh*

I miss my bathroom, guys.

I love beadboard - great choice Kelly! I can't wait to see the finished project (I'm sure you can't either)
