It looks better already!
Once everything was bought and delivered, Jeff, our builder, came to the rescue and ripped out the bathroom’s insides - bye bye tiles, walls, ceiling, floor. Bye-bye showers also - we’re living here during the renovation without a shower which isn’t great, but has to be done. Luckily, the in-laws are not far away… Banging, crashing, dust everywhere - it’s not the quietest place to live, but Zak doesn’t seem to mind. He finds it all hilarious and spends a lot of his day craning his neck from his floor mat, trying to check out the progress. By the end of the day, we have an empty shell with a gaping hole in the wall (barely covered with a piece of plywood). I’m a little nervous about the wind picking up again (it’s a whole two days after the major June storms), but the plywood sticks through the night and rain stays away. Phew.
