The Good News, we are in 'put together mode'; Bad News, I still have rocking, then mudding and taping left. Probably won't be tiling till later in the week. But that's OK, we are committed to doing it right, not fast. The almost 100 year old house has brought its set of challenges to to the table, but we've dealt with each of them in the best way possible. I am confident that the blemishes will only add character, and only be noticed by us.
Here is a before, and current status shot of the fixture wall. See, it's coming along.
By next week, we hope to have final photos. Here's hoping.
