Oh heck yes! City of Mission, KS 2008 building permit #3969.

I'd be a total hypocrite to require everyone in the jurisdiction I work for to get permits for their work and then not get one of my own in the jurisdiction I live in!!!

That looks really nice. I love what you are doing with your remodel. Great progress. Just a question. I can't tell but do you have a light in the shower? what are you using to cut your slate? did you pre-seal each piece? Love that back splash.

There's a can in the shower with a shower trim on it. Also installed a fancy dimmer on it for mood lighting. The wife rolled her eyes...I think that's a bad sign.

A wet saw is a must for cutting the slate.

I pre-washed every tile before installing. I hung all the tiles and then sealed them before grouting. Then I grouted, and will be sealing everything again.

I didn't realize you are into water and electrical conservation. BTW those comments didn't work here.

I thought you meant you were going to share the water and the lights with your wife. My wife and I used to be 'green' and share, now we are just clean.

Ahhhh, yes, we are definately going to embrace the idea of sharing.
Except, there are two shower heads, so I don't think there's a benefit...Or at least an economical/ecological benefit.

Looking great ,KC. No troubles interpreting codes,I presume? BTW,a little piped in mood music with the lighting might just put you over the top. No pun intended!

I have well over 150 hours in it. That's the problem doing work like this for a couple hours ever night (by myself)...If I could do it for 10 hours at a time I could probably knock it out a lot faster. I've been at it for about two months. I'm figuring another month and I'll have it mostly whipped. I hope so, because it is slowly sucking the life out of me!

Thanks for the compliments.

My bathroom remodel


I'm spending my July 4th building the overhead cabinets. It has proven extra challenging because neither corner that they're going into is square. I'm going to have to do lots of scribing.

In order to keep the cost down and for ease of construction I decided to not build full carcasses for them. Should work out fine, and I'm not burning up a lot of $50/sheet plywood. Everything's joined with pocket hole joinery, so it is rock solid.

They're not sanded yet.

The only challenge in building them was getting the 22-1/2* joint on the faceframe to come together. I used biscuits and made some 22-1/2* clamping blocks to draw the pieces together. I also used some harsh language, so the pieces cooperated.

My bathroom remodel


It was a productive weekend. Got the cabinets built, finished, and installed. I didn't hang the doors yet though. Didn't drill for the shelf pins yet either.

I installed a GFCI receptacle in my cabinet to plug in my razor.
