Addition update - week 16

Week 16
Mon: Tile was applied to the back wall of shower and 2 corner tile shelves were installed. There are 4 different sizes of tile: 6x6 squares, 3x6 rectangles, 1x1 glass mosaics, and 2x2 squares on the floor. We thought multiple sizes in a complimentary color palette would give texture without making the look too 'busy'.
The pocket door (on the toilet closet) was installed and trimmed out.
The 3 windows inside the dormer were trimmed out.

Tues: Tile was applied to right wall of the shower.
More trim work (ie: trim installation and filling of nail holes) was done inside and out.

Wed: Tile was applied to the left wall of the shower. (Corner shelves are better seen here.)
An apron was constructed around the 2 sides of the tub that do not butt again a wall.
More trim work done inside and out.

Thurs: Tile was installed on the slanted part of the ceiling...
and on the floor. The storage/display shelf was installed.
Beadboard panels were built that will attach to the tub apron and look like cabinet doors. They will be removable in the event of a need for tub motor maintenance. The shelf behind the tub was covered in plywood in preparation for tile. (Sorry the lightening wasn't good.)

Fri: Much of the trim was sanded, primed, and painted.

We tested some stains for the beadboard wainscoting that will be applied later.

When the addition is complete, you're going to invite me to come live with you, right?

The Crush du Jour is not very good looking, but you know how much I love ugly men, so all I gotta say is "Woof!!"

I LOVE the tile in the shower! I've been excited about that shower for weeks now. It looks so good now that it's really coming together - the whole thing, not just the shower.
