inch by inch

The bathroom is finally ready to put the sheet rock back up. There is a new sub-floor and a new bath tub. There is a ceiling light and fan now too after hours in an attic with less than two feet of head room. The shower is going to get the new mold resistant yellow board and the rest of the room gets the regular green board. It seems like so much else has happened but it was mostly prep work and trying to track down the electrical wires. That involved putting a new hatch into the attic. The old one was no where near anything that needed to be accessed in the attic and in the middle of a bedroom. The new one is in the laundry room and near the wiring, the swamp cooler, even the heater flue. The tile I want for the bathroom floor has been hard to find. It looks like I'll have to order it off of the internet. White hexagon tile with black highlight tiles seems to be a restoration specialty that the blue and orange box stores or the tiles stores don't carry anymore.

Only 6 weeks left until I need to be living there. Ack!
