Masterbath reno started yesterday!
I started a thread earlier with a question about whether my choices were going to be too bland and everyone was such a help that I feel very confident that the outcome of this reno is going to really suit me. Here's the link to my previous post. I ended up getting granite for the countertop because the travertine was sold and they couldn't get another. So I went somewhere else and found a beautiful granite.
They started yesterday and took out over 2.5 tons of debris . Very small bathroom but lots of tile, mud beds, cabinets, etc. Sure did add up. Today they completed clearing the area and raising the ceiling in the shower. They said the electrician comes tomorrow to start work on the rewiring.
The time quote is 4 weeks and we'll see how it goes. I don't think the work will take that long and all of the finish items are ordered and waiting at their warehouse. But the township I live in is very strict so the inspection process could really cause a delay. They've been known to make a contractor take apart and move a screw/nail that was 1/8" too far apart in nailing wallboard to a stud.
I think overall the hardest decision was picking the wall paint color! Ended up with BM Frappe.
At some point I'll try to put some photos up as the process goes forward.
They have been working so clean, I'm amazed. They basically covered everything in the bedroom with plastic sheeting. Looked like a scene from Dexter! Then they have a plastic zippered door leading to the bathroom from the bedroom so it's contained.
