Almost finished with the bathroom.
Monday I had told the boss I wanted it done this week. After all he told me it was a day and a half job. Would of helped it they hadn't started last Wed. and didn't return until Tues.
The color is more grey but this is another room where the camera can't capture the color we see.
The painters are brothers and I must say very nice people and they work well together. At least from what I saw.
Still last night I couldn't shower as paint needed some time to set. Humidity has been so high and the AC was off until they left last night.
Today the electrician is due in after a staff meeting to place a new plug and wire the light on the mirror wall. Then possibly today or tomorrow the mirror will get mounted.
I decided it will be my job not theirs to wipe down the tub surround. I'd like Wil to bring in a ladder so I can check up near the ceiling as well. I have cared for this 'fake' marble since 1994 and I doubt they really know how to clean and dry it. Every time we have showered we wipe down the walls. When the surround first went in they told us to use auto polish and that was applied making it easier to buff.
This time when they sprayed the texture on the wall some did land on the counter top and I will see if I can remove it with my plastic scraper. If I can't I will ask them what to use.
Wil saw a tiny bit of paint on the floor. That they will have to get as bending is out for me. I notice Wil having more back problems. I can tell, he gets grouchy.
I sure appreciated Tony was doing our yard yesterday so I could borrow his keys and go over and use their bathroom a couple times.
Some adjustment will have to be done on our bill as the painters did not have to lift the toilet to get behind it. I guess the big boss didn't know that. Plus we bought the towel bars. I probably should of had them move the one closer to the light switch as the door does hit it. That would of thrown the balance off though.
I certainly hope we never have to do another job in there. When we first moved in the house Wil and Scott worked on it, then the big huge gut job that almost drove us into divorce court, so hopefully we are now done.
Do you know the Habitat ReStores won't take a mirror unless it is framed? So now I have a 42 inch by 48 inch mirror sitting in the garage. Hopefully the electrician does know someone who will take it. Stands to reason as bathrooms with large mirrors are out of style now. We may end up having to set it in the yard with a big 'Free' sign on it.
