Progress- November 13, 2007

Here is the progress in our downstairs bathroom as of yesterday afternoon. Although it looks like a wreck, I am greatly encouraged! Chris has really been getting some things done in there. I am so proud of him, as he works so hard to take care of me. As you can see, the old cabinet is gone, he has built part of the box out (chase?) around the return-air, and get this...

HOUSTON, WE HAVE A LIGHT!!! Yes that's right, no more trying to use the restroom in the dark, or relying on a desk lamp. Oh no, my friend, we have actual hard-wired electricity with a switch and everything. Like I said in my last post, we are so blessed.

When we were in the heat of remodeling last fall/winter, Chris and I agreed that the comfort-necessities to live in a home were as follows in no particular order: (1) Flushing Toilets, (2) Running water- preferably with the option of hot water, (3) Heat, (4) At least some walls.

Everything else is gravy. Trust me, it's really true. But how sweet that gravy can be!

Last night Chris' dad came over and helped. Plumbing work, I think. Thank you so much! So- here's to the gravy of having a second functional bathroom. Just makes me happy...
