Addition update - week 17

Week 17
Mon: The last pieces of shower tile were set, and the new storage door got a coat of paint.

The beadboard that will become wainscoting was measured, cut, and stained to match the vanity.

Tues: The beadboard wainscoting was installed in both sections of the bathroom (but not in the closet or toilet room) to unify the 'old' and the 'new' parts.

The beadboard wainscoting is complete.
The tile trim around the shower opening was set.
Wed: The top coat of paint was applied in the bathroom, toilet room, and closet/dressing room. The tub panels were stained. They will be fixed to the tub apron, built last week.
Thurs: A top coat of paint was applied to the exterior siding and trim. The tile grid was 'snapped' onto the bathroom floor with chalk string. (No photos.)

Fri: The radiant heating system was installed, and the setting of the floor tile was started.
Unfortunately the radiant heating 'wire' was too short so it had to be pulled back up. A longer 'wire' was purchased and installed. This prevented them from finishing the floor tile setting this week.
Interior 'finish' painting took place on the foyer ceiling, the powder room ceiling and wall, around new door into garage, and upstairs where a window used to be.
This used to be a window that looked onto the porch. Now its a door into the garage.

Nice to see how this has been coming along. The radiant heating under the bathroom floor will be comfy-cozy this winter season!

I didn't notice a deadbolt lock on that door that leads to the garage. :-(
