Hey Guys! It has been anything but uneventful around here lately! My father in law is coming next week, and we’ve been busy getting ready for him. I know this isn’t news to any of you who’ve been long time readers, but Michael is originally from Germany and his parents still live there. Needless to say, he doesn’t get to pop in and visit with them whenever he feels like it. So, when they come to visit, they stay with us for a few weeks, and we get ready by rearranging our office to be more guest friendly – making room for a bed, and cleaning shelf space for clothes.
Some day, I plan to redesign it to work double duty year-round, but there are more pressing projects to finish first! More than likely once all these projects are done, I’ll look for home Interior Design companies to plan and carry out the redesign for us, so a little break can be had!
And speaking of more pressing projects, next on the list is our master bathroom! Gah, you guys. I’m super excited. This has been a project that’s been a long time in the making. The plumbing’s been done, the room framed, the floor tile installed for – you ready for this? As excited that I am that this project is finally getting underway, it didn’t feel like this for a while. It just seemed to take us a long time to get these jobs completed, especially because we didn’t realize how much work needed to be done. Surprisingly, after we found a plumbing company that was similar to Silverwater Plumbing, (https://www.silverwaterplumbing.com.au/plumber-seven-hills/), this job actually didn’t take us that long. In fact, it took us longer to find a plumber in our area to start with. Even though it took us a while to get this project underway, at least we know that everything has been sorted so that it is safe for us to proceed with everything else. It has definitely been a long time coming. Even though I’m elated to see everything clicking together, renovating a bathroom is incredibly stressful, especially doing it by yourself. However, outsourcing a contractor for help to redo your bathroom takes away a lot of this stress and allows you to feel excitement for your new design!
I can’t even believe we’ve been here that long, but that’s the truth. That room has been roughed in and ready to be finished since we moved into the house. But you know what, finishing it up wasn’t ever super important to me. I wanted the spaces that we all live in and share together to be finished and decorated before we shelled out the rest of the money to finish the bathroom, so that we could look to make it special in its own right. Right now we’re considering options for the shower portion, perhaps a custom glass shower door? Oh, but what kind of bathtub should we get? We’ve had plenty of time to give it all a lot of thought, but the choice is still yet to be made final!
