We live in a “ranch style” house. It has two bathrooms, a guest bathroom and then a small bathroom that connects to our bedroom. My wife (Mrs. NCN!) has decided that (after two years of saving money like crazy) that we need to SPEND a little and remodel our bathroom. We are going to paint, replace the toilet, put in a new vanity, change the door, the lighting fixtures, and replace an old window. We live in a house provided by my employer. My employer will cover the cost of some of the repairs, but we will be responsible for most of the work. So far, I’ve gotten rid of the old door. It was one of those pitiful 1970’s hollow-core doors and it’s been painted at least ten times. I’ve also removed the molding from around the old window, taken down the lighting fixtures, thrown out the old shower curtain (and rod), and removed everything else from the bathroom except for the toilet, the shower, and the old vanity. I’ll probably hire someone to do the plumbing and any electrical work, but I’ll handle the painting, drywall, tile work, and window replacement. (Do I actually KNOW how to do any of these things yet? Not really. One of the great lessons that I’ve learned over the past two years is that the only way to learn HOW to do something is to actually DO something!) I like having “projects” and this will be one of the biggest that I’ve tackled. I’ll update you as we go forward.
