Basement Bathroom : Reveal!

Sorry for disappearing the last two weeks. I had a very thorough and detailed plan to get the bathroom completed, and this post was supposed to be making its debut much much sooner. That was until our house was ravaged by some ungodly disease that made gross stuff happen to your body (aka Norovirus). Let’s just say, that new toilet bowl and I have gotten to know each other pretty well, and I’m thankful it was brand new and clean and not grossing me out as much as the old one would have been.

More “Art” in the Basement

Recently one of my most favorite places in the world closed. I spent 10 years of my life behind the take out counter at the Green Mill restaurant in uptown Mpls, MN. I managed half hearted drivers and organized take out orders chocked full of sub par food. Although we were not known for it, we excelled at having the same regular drunks at the same bar stools everyday single day, while also making possibly the world's greatest chicken wings that nobody really knew about. The Green Mill was not READ MORE

Basement Bathroom : Week 11

Welp, here we are, week 11. I've worked a few hours nearly every day trying to get to a point where I could call the tile installation officially complete.

The holidays threw a wrench in my plans so we will just ignore them, and not even count them as part of my timeline. We'll just skip right over Christmastime and begin week 7 right after the New Year. Can I just say again that I am soooooo looking forward to wrapping this up! At the start of week 7, I was still waiting for the floor tiles to be delivered from READ MORE

Decking Out the Bathroom

Yes, I'm still working on the bathroom. It was hard to get back into the swing of things after the holidays, but I'm getting there. Just yesterday the dark blue cement floor tiles arrived, and they are amazing! I'm letting them acclimate for a few days before I go ahead with the install, in the mean time I'll be watching every youtube vid I can find until I feel totally confident that I'm not going to screw this up. Computer time has been rare these days. Our hot water heater and boiler READ MORE
