Bathroom renos

I haven't been doing a lot of scrapbooking lately because we've been busy redoing our upstairs bathroom.  Right from scratch.  Rick gutted the room including pulling down the ceiling and replacing the 40 year old insulation. I should have taken pictures then, but didn't.
Here it is after the gyprock(sp?) had been put back up, taped and mudded.  Rick has already put a couple of coats of a grey/tan colour on the walls.

Our medicine cabinets are going to be set into the walls so the mirror will lie flat or almost flat with the walls.

Rick put down some of the plywood base floor so we could at least have the second toilet in use.  Five people trying to get ready in the morning with only one bathroom is not fun.

There used to be a 3' x 3' approx. closet in this corner. When we emptied it we filled a couple of garbage bags with junk that had made it's way to the back of the deep shelves and hadn't seen the light of day for years.  Rick tore the closet completely out.  The small jutted in piece left houses the chimney from the furnace, but where he's left the hole was just wasted space.  I want him to build me a narrower shelving unit there for the towels and bath stuff. We're debating on wether or not to make a door for it or leave it open.

The ceiling is 'brocade' with a semigloss white paint.

We installed a ceiling fan and heatlamp while we were at it.  I just hope our wiring can handle the extra load.  Breanna's hairdryer blows our breaker most mornings.

So for now we have a tub in our living room, medicine cabinets in the hallway, and faucets in the bedroom. Hopefully they'll all be in the bathroom where they belong shortly.
