It looks great. Your comment about grouting the corner's has me concerned. You should silicone the corners and grout the flat. If or when it starts to crack then dig it out and caulk it. I used a cake icing bag to grout hard areas around my stones. Keep up the good work. dorf dude...

I think I'll try latex caulk in the corners next time. The silicone attracts a lot of dirt and is hard to clean. But grout is definately not a good idea.

ChuckBlack!

What did you say?!? - "...It totally out-classes the rest of the house.".
I know what you'll be doing with all your "vacations", for a long, long time!!
Bringing the "class" of the rest of the house - up to the class of the
bathroom!!
(At least, you have a good target to shoot at!)
Nice!!

-Thanks, will do! The bathroom was one of the rooms without any cracks, I hope that keeps up.

rossfingal
-You know it!

-Well, the shower arm came in today. Thank god such a thing exists. My first though was that I was going to have to rip that tile out and build it all up. Wasn't looking forward to that. I also started on the pot lights. Man, time consuming. I got two in so far. I tested it all out after I had one pot light in, everything worked, sweet!

Little update here. It's coming along, the lights are all in. What a total pain crawling around in an insulated attic installing these things but well worth the effort. The lights add so much to the look of the room, highly recommended.

I'm also starting on the vanity, hope to have that done soon, need to make another quick trip to the hardware store...

Later!

-Hehe, yep! Crazy how that works eh? The walls are just drywall coated with glossy paint. I cheaped out on the rollers and have lint in my paint, not as smooth as the pictures show. Lesson learnt...

-Vanity is all screwed to the wall and the top is caulked! Tomorrow get that sink working I hope...

Later!

Looks great, man. I've been following along, really impressed. I've slowly been saving the money to do ours. Just finished a new storm door and two windows. My main helper looks to be about the same age as yours is :-)

I was also curious at the beginning of this thread to see how far you'd get in a week. That is awfullly ambitious. Stiil you are making impressive progress for a DIY project. It took me almost a year to finish my bathroom and am still working on finishing my kitchen- haven't posted on that project thread in so long it's probably on page 3.

I hope to get busy on the kitchen floor this week. I find the devil is in the details like the trim, finish mudding on the drywall and painting.

Wow! I can't believe you did that! It looked so outdated (and yes your toilet was definitely too close to the tub before haha), but now it looks very modern! I could never do the remodel myself and had to hire a contractor to remodel my bathroom. I went for a country style feel with a light blue, but I like your red too!
