We started our bathroom remodel on February 22, 2020 hoping to have it finished by the time the boys got back home from their Spring Break trip to Omaha. Well the boys didn’t go to Omaha, and we didn’t finish by March 21st. There was a lot about this project that took longer than anticipated. That is pretty typical of any home remodel project. Let alone to try to get one done in the middle of a pandemic.
I am very thankful that we have had a few friends who came over to help us along the way, before we were given our stay at home order. We couldn’t have done this without Caleb, JD, and Royce. Their help was greatly appreciated.
A big shout out to my husband, Scott, who has pushed through to see this project completed. Scott worked hard and did things he had never done before. He was scared about messing up and had to be encouraged that we are confident in his skills. Scott learned more about how he processes things and how to push through a difficult project. He was kind of forced to push through, but because of that is much more confident now.
We are still missing some things like the shower curtain, bath mat, hand towel holders, and toilet paper holder. Also, there is currently no door on the bathroom. The hardware for the new sliding barn door Scott is building will be here at some point (plus trim). We ordered these things on Amazon and right now, a toilet paper holder just doesn’t have the same priority as the actual toilet paper. Since we can’t have anyone over right now, I guess it doesn’t matter that there is no bathroom door. By the time we can have company again, we will have a door, so don’t worry about coming over and using the guest bathroom.
I tried to take pictures after every day of work, but that just didn’t happen throughout the project. I hope this gives a general idea of how the project went. I know some of these pictures may look familiar from a previous post. I wanted to have them in here so you could see the whole project from start to where “finish” is now.
It has been a long eight weeks, but I am very pleased at the whole project. There are still things to get done, but life is getting back to normal again. Well, as much as normal can get right now.
