Lake Tahoe Fixer Update November 21, 2015
While I’ve stayed in town, getting ready for Christmas Tree Lane, for Jesuit High School and Sacred Heart’s Holiday Home Tour and Botique, in the Fab 40’s, Mr. Wonderful has been working full speed ahead, with electricians, cabinet makers and texture/sheet rock guys.
Upstairs, is 95% complete, so that’s where we are spending our time, while downstairs is in the works. I am hoping downstairs will be livable, when the kids arrive for Christmas! A lot of dust will fly, between now and then!
Bob texted the following pictures to me, in progress, so here you go…
We said good bye to our 1958 kitchen. Sad but true! Behind the tile, the guys found plywood, instead of sheet rock. Sheet rock is more fire safe and a better insulator, so they upgraded the insulation and taped up the sheet rock.
You probably don’t remember the pink, downstairs bathroom. PINK bath tub, toilet, sink, tile…everything! I searched for photos, but you’ll have to use your imagination. There was a tub and shower. The shower stall was claustrophobic, so we made that into a linen closet and installed a roomy shower.
Another fine picture, but the bathroom at this point has been textured, tiled and painted. The lighted space is the bathroom closet and the shower is on the left. Mr. W., installed the new lights, which I’m really happy about.
The lower half of the walls have been covered in a matte, cream colored subway tile and the floor and shower is covered with 12 X 24″ cream colored tile. The best part of all, is the new hand built, reclaimed wood vanity, made by a local craftsman.
It was installed last night.
Our last Market was a huge success and we thank you so much for your growing support!
