I began off the week robust with getting stuff completed on the grasp rest room, however then the week form of ended weak. I don’t work on Wednesdays, after which yesterday, I needed to go to the attention physician and get my eyes dilated so she may do an intensive examination. Since I had by no means had my eyes dilated earlier than, she mentioned she wouldn’t order extra contacts for me till she may do this examination. So I received there vivid and early, had my eyes dilated, received the examination (every little thing seemed good), after which it took actually the remainder of the day (till about 6:00pm) for my eyes to get again to regular and the blurriness to go away. My eyes had been so blurry all day that I couldn’t see my pc. I couldn’t see to measure and lower trim for the lavatory. I couldn’t do something that required me to see element up shut. So I didn’t get something accomplished yesterday, both!! Ugh! So irritating.
So I’ll offer you a toilet standing report as we head into the weekend. I’m actually hoping to get fairly a bit accomplished this weekend, so we’ll see how that goes.
The partitions within the water closet are nonetheless underway, and nonetheless on the identical stage the place I left them on Tuesday night time. That is the place my focus will likely be this weekend, as I hope to get the remainder of the trim put in, after which get every little thing sanded, caulked, and hopefully painted.
As soon as the partitions are accomplished in there, I can begin constructing the cupboard (which will likely be a separate, freestanding piece of furnishings) that can go towards that again wall.
I haven’t made any extra progress on the bubble gentle. Whereas the additional bubbles (ornaments) that I ordered did are available in, I additionally determined to order a ceiling medallion for the sunshine.
That is one which was really useful by a commenter on the final bubble gentle publish, and I completely beloved it at first sight. It’s like a whimsical solar medallion, and it’s from Wafair. I can’t wait to get it, nevertheless it gained’t be right here till subsequent week. So the sunshine is on maintain till then.
The entire trim and the door on the outside wall are painted, however the glass on the door nonetheless must be cleaned, and I would like to put in the brand new door knob and deadbolt on the door. These will likely be black, similar to on all the opposite doorways in the home.
I’m nonetheless ready on trim to reach in order that I can begin constructing the vanities and the dresser that can go between them. I discovered a spot on-line that sells every kind of trim in many various species of wooden (together with the walnut that I would like), in order that’s coming from Canada, and it’ll most likely be one other week earlier than it arrives. Technically, I may go forward and construct the vanities earlier than the trim arrives, and simply add the trim afterwards. However for the dresser, due to the design, I would like that order to return in first earlier than I can begin constructing.
The bathe appears similar to it seemed the opposite day once I confirmed the completed bathe to you. The bathe curtain nonetheless must be hemmed, and till I get that accomplished (or simply take away it till it’s accomplished), the bathe is again to an unusable state.
After which on the opposite wall, the door main into the house fitness center, in addition to the casing round it, are nonetheless unfinished. The entire nail holes have been wooden crammed, however I nonetheless must sand, caulk, after which paint. As soon as that’s accomplished, I can lower away the plastic that’s presently overlaying the glass panes. (The white that you just see on the glass is primer overlaying the plastic that protects the panes. The producer covers the panes with plastic, after which sprays the primer, in order that’s how the doorways arrive.)
So the progress has been gradual this week, however no less than there was progress! And no less than I now have a route for the water closet partitions. My purpose continues to be to have this room accomplished by the top of June, however I higher step up the tempo if I’m going to make that purpose!
