Incredible thread... So much work!.
I'd like to add, if it's not too late something that may save your life.

Please purchase Smoke Detectors that are DUAL SENSOR.
They NEED to be Photoelectric AND Ionization. Please do not purchase one or thr either as they are for very different types of fires.

The difference,

http://www.nfpa.org/safety-informati...-photoelectric

And a video showing the difference in real time.

Final electrical walk through. Another sticker added to the box!! Passed with flying colors. Next is building inspector. I still need to build the banister this weekend. After that we should be good to go! Fingers crossed.

Just noticed this thread and scrolled through all the pictures. That original tub that sat at an angle looks very unique. Is there a name for that style of tub? Is it cast iron. Also, what happened to the concrete double sink. I've heard you can get a pretty good price for those.

I have no idea about that old tube. It was really weird. It was cast iron. Sledgehammered...
As for the sink it was in rough shape. Sledgehammered...

That style of tub is called a Cinderella tub.

Love the Elkay sink. Special order of course, since it's not made in China.
