Custom Home ...SOLD!!!

I know the economy is pretty bad across the country right now. But really! Is this what it's coming to?

Ty was driving through one of the local newly constructed neighborhoods and this is what he found.

This beautiful, blue custom home; complete with landscaped front yard. I hope the new homeowners got a good price! AND some air freshener!!!

Water Closet. Potty. Bathroom. Restroom.

What ever you call yours, ours is coming along nicely.

Here are a couple of "pre" in-progress photos. It's a little room that seems to be taking a big amount of time to get done.

Like the rest of the house, it was in desperate need of a facelift. It's been used and abused by the boys for four + years AND by the previous owners and their residents for who knows how long before that.

The light fixture and fiberglass tub/surround is definately 100% 1970's. The toilet, sink and flooring had been updated at some point - probably right before we bought it - you know, to get it sold. The only thing that will be left when we are done is the flooring and the tub/surround (at least until we move the shower into the adjacent bedroom). That's a whole other adventure on the back-burner.

Anyways, we got a new toilet that is shorter, a new pedestal sink that is taller, new sink faucet, a new light fixture, new outlets and switches, new shower curtains, new curtain rod, patched wall holes, fresh primer, multiple paint colors, and some re-purposed/re-finished accessories. What a fresh change!!!

We're getting closer to completion. I'll post photos by the end of the week!!!
