Stencil questions

We found this stencil under the bathroom walls. 

It ran around the border of the bathroom and the hall area, including the old window in the bathroom space. This stencil, coupled with the linoleum floor makes me wonder if the space had once been a kitchen.

Demo progress

The elevated floor and most of the walls in the bathroom have been removed. We found that there was a continuous piece of linoleum under the entire space, and the bathroom was just added on top.  This is good news, since we can now build the bathroom level with the rest of the hall area. The bad news is that we have to do some additional demo to rip out more floor.

Floor/Ceiling fixes

Its never good when you arrive home and your contractor meets you in the driveway to prepare you for the fact they had to build a temporary retaining wall in the kitchen so the ceiling didn't fall in when fixing the joists in the bathroom above...

Some day this house will be finished, right?

Interior rainforest

We are moving forward with the bathroom renovation and decisions. The latest decision is about the shower.
We decided on this kind of showering extravaganza.

Its more luxurious than I originally wanted. Rainfall shower, 2 body sprays, a regular shower head and a hand-held. Its a lot of water, and I think if one were to shower with all the faucets turned on they would get a glorious shower for about 5 minutes until the hot-water ran out. I was iffy on it, but when the woman in the showroom told me that I could just shower with the body sprays on the day when I don't want to wash my hair, I was sold.

We chose the chrome finish to save money... ha! like a Diet Coke with your Big Mac...

I'm going to finalize that order today, we're right at the line of No Return, but we're getting ready to jump over it.
