Bucket List - Item #10 - Remodel my Own Bathroom
.... without calling any of my Contractor Friends to Bail me out.
Let the process begin. This is slow and steady, like the Turtle, but always wins the race.
"You can do anything you put your mind to doing" Famous quote from my parents. It was more about doing my homework on time, practicing my violin or just outright obeying them.
Yes, I may have a leg up on people considering my Father was a custom home builder. But I didn't take an interest or start buying my own power tools until I decided I WANTED to be the CREATOR of stuff!
My house is a 1960's Ranch, leaning more towards a california ranch. So, therefore, more with a Mid-Century Vibe. I moved into it in 2001. Yep, gave every room a facelift, or 2 or 3 or more, plus had the kitchen remodeled.
But uggggg.. the confession. Are you familiar with the story of the Cobbler and his Children? Well that was me. The bathrooms looked horrible. I'm on a slab, so if I wanted to change the layout, it would mean jack-hammering the floor. No thank you! As I was gutting my TWO(2), YES, 2, bathrooms, a cousin-contractor came over and took a look- the Electrical Panel had been in a closet in the Master Bathroom. I didn't want the Closet in there any more. He took a look and pleasantly informed me that I had one of the most dangerous Electrical Panels and I needed to get it changed out. So I put that bathroom on hold until that could be remedied.
Because my house is on a slap, the layout is not changing, just adding some interesting elements. Sit back and Watch the action unfold....very slowly......
Because, in the meantime, I am traveling a lot with clients who have downsized and moved south! My LIFE IS SOOO good! Plus, my daughter has moved to Texas. Just be notified, this is going slow. And, all the wonderful clients I work with every week.
