That old house #11: Yes, this IS the final installment

01-11-2013 05:57 AM by BillyJ | 30 comments »

Now for the details of the remodeling. Original budget: $14k. Final budget: to be determined (right now we are double the original amount). True, I am finished with the kitchen, and I believe she does not have any further plans for the kitchen, but the “house” now became the former kitchen. I think she has enough for me to do for the rest of my life. EVERYTHING was upgraded during this remodel. From the 1/2 dozen different door knobs I bought, to hinges, slides, lights, etc....

Okay, just started this project today. The bathroom was still as we decorated it when we moved in 10 years ago. The paint was peeling, caulk was dried and had some mold, the faucet was never quite tight, and some of the fixtures were rusting. I fixed the faucet first.
