So the bathroom is finally complete and of course other projects jump into place. I'm finishing up adding recessed lights in the living room. Originally when we bought the house, the living room didn't have a light at all. I installed a new light on it's own circuit and put a 3 way switch to turn on the light from two points. After a few years, my wife felt it was too dark so I decided on installing some recessed lighting in the room. 6 to be exact plus the one in the center. I still have to buy the trim and add a new center light (since a dance party caused it to break..) but the hard part is done. I went with remodel can lights since they required less destruction to the ceiling and were easy to install. The new construction, recessed lights were installed in the bathroom.
Here are the lights installed minus the trim and center light. (Only 3 shown but 6 were installed)
Here is the trim installed. We went a basic reflector trim and LED lights.
I still have a few things left like matching the drain and toilet handle with the other faucets, door trim and window tile trim as well as the vent. The pedestal sink really helped open the space up a bit more and it feels a bit roomier now.
It took me about 3 days, 12 hours for 2 days and 10 hours for the 3rd. This is almost straight through with little break! Going to grout, finish the plumbing and install the toilet next. We are still trying to figure out the exact sink so that might take a little longer.
We plan on getting wood patterned flooring designed in a herring bone pattern. I'm excited to see this finally coming together! A lot of the work happened behind the walls but once the boards went up, it started to look like a bathroom. I didn't take a picture of the vapor barrier installation but all of that stuff is done too.
