    Default The new bathroom.

    The new bathroom is finally finished. We had to complete it in order to sell the house. Here are the pics.

    Nice cabinets and tile.

    I went with the same style of cabinets (just a lighter in color) in my kitchen and same tile for the backsplash.

    I just have one more bathroom to finish (75% done), and my 45 y.o house will be new on the inside.

    Faggy - adjective for anything a man might use that is both ugly and excessively feminine. Often confused with something the man's grandmother might have chosen.

    e.g. Wall paper with embossed pink roses (as installed by the previous owners in 2005).

    Ahhh,,,, you're the first one to notice there are no fixtures on the walls. Right now, the roll is in the most convenient cabinet drawer.

    I'm used to the Loseranna rates. Usually 2X the materials. ..cause I do it myself... ...then redo it... ...kinda like my mechanic work.

    Your hot tub encloser... did you draw it up yourself or buy plans? I have something simular in mind, but opening to a sunroon (currently patio) for the entrance.

    I assume you're talking about this.

    I don't draw. I just understand the concept in my head and then measure / cut / install. The roof angle was chosen by eye to match the roofline of the house. The rest of it was discussed over dinner. Ed elected to keep the roof off because he wanted more of a sense of being outside. The walls and blinders were required because of the location of the house and neighbors. Seattle doesn't have the bug problem you have in Dallas, so there was no need to make the whole thing completely enclosed.

    We also had the issue of the deck and the tub's location when we got the house. If I find the pics, I'll post one here.

    My Seattle rate is $60/hr cash.

    Brad's talking about the nice wiring job the previous owners did across the lofted ceiling. Mind you, this is a REAL beam, not a modern mock-up.



    And this is what the bathroom looked like when Brad and Tim were here.

    How did you make the blinders? Dowels?

    The blinders are fixed in position. Since the houses next to ours don't move, the blinders don't need to pivot. The reality in most commercial gazebos is that the blinder angle is adjusted once by the end user and never touched again.

    I just used my eyeball, found an angle that would block direct viewing, cut ONE angled piece and installed it. The rest of the slats are spaced parallel to the first by using regular straight sided pieces of wood.

    It's a completely custom install that only works in this location. You can't see it in the pics, but there's a short bridge that passes between the tub and the deck. The bridge has to be removable because the pumps and controls for the tub are there. I also had to cut out the deck railings.

    Lemme see if I can find the pic of what we started with.
