Contractor has been busy
The contractor and his helpers (can vary from 1 to 2 extra guys/day) have been busy: hallway and Master bedroom trim is primed, as is the trim for the 2 bathrooms.
More demo had to happen in the Master bath
with replacement sheetrock added
Various holes from defunt outlets and switches were patches and spackled over as was the original vent over the range in the kitchen. Whomever "remodeled" this house in 2011, simply put up the microwave over the range and didn't bother to seal up the old vent, now properly sealed. @@
You can see the new water lines for the Master sink as well as the return of the pink wall tiles. Some will have to be cut out where it's rusted from the cleat of the wall mounted sink. There are extras on hand to accomplish this with ease. A large, 48 inch vanity will be installed over this area anyway, so if some need to be "stolen" from behind, it's not an issue.
The new seat for the Master shower was built and water proofed, and awaits delivery of tile to start to rebuild it.
