i do hope that one day i’ll be able to stop saying this, but…

there’s still a good bit more to do.

however, it’s finally feeling like the list is manageable and the end is in sight. we put the river stone in under the clawfoot. but in the end we decided to remove the claws altogether and support it with other means, allowing it to seemingly ‘float’ on the stones.

i finished up the tiling (i had left a small section while waiting for more bullnose tile to come in. i ordered about 10 pieces too little. sigh…) and though I don’t have any pictures of it yet, I built the lower shelf and legs for the sink cabinet. the door is back in place and christopher’s putting the trim molding on this evening. i’ll grout the last section of tiles tonight too.

then all that’s left is putting the pine header over the entrance to the tub area (similar to the curb in front of the tub)…building a shelf unit off the fan box over the toilet…putting a piece of trim on the tile above the sink to cap it off…putting up the copper trim that will separate the pennies from subway tile along the back tub wall….finding a shower handle that fits!!…finish some last-minute patches in the porcelain in the tub…aaand i believe we’re set!

    It’s looking great Calais! You’re so clever with the pennies!
