It was rainy, again, which worked right into my plans. I needed to get Dave's input on my ideas for the new remodeling project. I figured we take a quick trip into town to Lowe's and compare prices and contrast products for the bath redo and the floors...yes the floors are getting changed too. Actually it was only going to be the floors in the beginning, but it became a bigger more inclusive project.
We have four or five different floor coverings on the first level. I don't like any of them, and want hardwood on everything. But I want it to at least come close to our living room and kitchen yellow hearts of pine, so I am hoping to go with this creamy yellow bamboo.
I showed Dave my inexpensive fix for the shower/bath combo, but surprisingly he picked a more expensive and really much nicer tub. The doors are curved glass and the most expensive part ($399!)of the set. (I'd be just as happy with a curved shower curtain rod...)
Our contractor is coming on Friday to figure out if we can do this tub in the same space as our walk-in shower. Or if we need to try plan B or C. We would love to see if a full second bath could be added to the studio/Dave's new apartment. We'll see.
Then we looked at interior doors, and new French doors to replace the slider in the studio. We really liked the kind with the built in shade that will scroll down and block out the afternoon heat.
I kept a running total on just these items, and I still have more room in the budget! Where is this budget coming from? Remember, we SOLD the boat! ha.
I am keeping up with the jacket knitting and will be doing the shoulders and collar next. Woowoo!
I am watching George Gently on Netflix.
