Monthly Round-up: April Showers Bring…

April. Oh April. You let me down. Snow, check. Heat still pumping away, check. Sticking it where the sun don’t shine, check. Life in the Mitten – just chalk it up. But the good news with our crap-tastic April weather, was that we got a whole lotta house renovating done. 😉 A bit easier to stay motivated when going outside is that rough. He he. Well, here is the round-up for ya!

Making Plans

We started out by making some long-term plans, and re-thinking some renovation strategies. Final conclusions still pending, but we are leaning toward keeping the house footprint as is, and converting our screened-in porch to a rockin’ sunroom. Stay tuned!

Bathroom Built-In

We started the bathroom built-in, best decision eva!! Can’t say it wasn’t with it’s trials and tribulations, but this little guy is definitely going to be a serious asset in the storage category.

I came, we searched, we conquered. Found some hardware to start and finish out the water room. The orange tabby is pretty happy to be reunited with his faucet. The guy likes his water. Like a fish. I think he may grow scales.

While we had the tile saw out, we thought we would get crackin’ on the basement bathroom. Helped that each tile was one square foot, and the bathroom is all of 20 square feet, didn’t take too long to get this room looking in tip top shape.
