Welcome to my next renovation. This time around my goal is to renovate my 2nd floor bathroom in a similar style to my basement bathroom. Thrown into the mix I’m also renovating the hallway on that floor.

The problem: Out of date and cheaply done bathroom with a leak somewhere around the tub drain (seems to be mostly from the overflow) The floor is unlevel and ugly. Reason enough to do the renovation. The door to the bathroom was nicely done with a 6’ high opening, hung with a hollow core door mounted upside down including the hinges. That had to be fixed, and I also wanted to add absent doors to the 3rd floor and one of the bedrooms. The hall floor was peal and stick tiles and undersized burnt, and not glued vinyl sheet. The hall and dressing room floors were done in teak hardwood a while back.

Here’s the starting point.

I striped it down and replaced some door casings.

Next I hung some doors and put on some plywood panels and pine trim.

As always the canine supervisors have to inspect everything I do to the house.

Pictures are worth more than words, so I’ll leave it as that. If you want to know more of what’s going on, just ask.

I adore your enthusiasm and use of photographs. You are correct “pictures are worth a thousand words”. Where did that world wide saying originate? I wonder? I have renovated,or rather partner renovated, I supervised three homes over a 10 year period. We never tire of living in a state of unsettled mess! The enjoyment of locating a wonderful piece to include in the “renos” is such a fulfilling experience as is viewing the finished work. All that hard labour and countless hours of your time. Ooh I want to do my fourth!!!!!! For me it is the planning, the dreaming of how the finished house will look. How my friends, who are always in shock with the state of the properties we purchase will react when we have finally bought all the new second hand furnishings to fit the new look house.
