|After moving in on September
6th, Jayden was the first person to take a bath in the farm house!
can finally see the installed sink in the Main Bathroom. Once we work
out the problem with a leak in the cold water line to the sink, and
install the faucet & shower on the bathtub, this room will be
completed! Above right, the Bathroom door was installed and the
lock replaced with a new plate from The Rebuilding Center.
Locking the door was important for this room. :)
It's been installed for a while now but we haven't ever taken a picture of the toilet in the main bathroom. :)
can see the base for the pedalstal sink we've begun installing, as well
as the ceiling light Rick installed on March 6th.
|Left Fred trims the copper line
to put on the faucet for the bathtub. Above, Rick, Rick Close and
his friend Brian Shanniack move the tub from the Spare Room into the
Rick & Brian plan the best way to upright the tub and get it into
place without damaging floor tiles. Below the end result!

emphasize the light fixture over the medicine cabinet that is WORKING!
(woo hoo electricity!)
The ceiling vent fan works great too, very quiet! Kass is in the shadows here finishing up the paint on the molding.
Right is a clearer picture of the new light fixture.
|The Bathroom is now ready for
finish! Kass finished painting the bead board and the trim, now
need to install the plumbing shutoff valves, the toilet, tub and sink
and we are ready to go!
took an extra day off to work on the house.
With the help of her dad, they were able to complete the bead-board, put on the base shoe molding, and trim out the windows and door. Next is primer and paint!
(The floor is sloped on purpose; we installed a floor drain to help with any water spillage.)
|Only the first coat, but finally
a touch of color in the Bathroom!

the same leg after Kassandra's Paint Shop Therapy!
|Bob the Handyman did a little
more grouting and then sealed most of the Bathroom floor there
are a couple more places to seal and then we can finish the drywall.
|Handyman for Hire Bob finished
off the sloping of the floor, and put down a coat of sealer to protect
the Bathroom floor on October 30th.
||Then on November 2nd, Bob laid
down the hexagon tile we picked out for the floor!
Handyman for Hire Bob has been working on the Bathroom floor for us. He has been sloping the floor so that water spilled from the clawfoot bathtub will slope down into the floor drain we have put in. (6 year old boy, water, it will hit the floor)
I do believe this is the cleanest the bathtub has been since we first saw it! At least it appears to be in pretty good condition and does not need to be resurfaced or anything majorly repaired. Just a REALLY good sanitizing once we get it back into the Bathroom and hooked up to the water & drain! :)
the Bathroom after Father's Day weekend 2007! We finished
the ceiling and two walls of sheetrock, mostly green board, but
can't do the other two walls until the plumbing passes
inspection. The skylight really brings in a lot of light, and
almost feels like there's a light on when we are in there!
Fred and Kassandra installed a Sonitube skylight in the Bathroom on June 3rd, 2007. I tried to take a picture from the outside to show how it's not so protusive but from the ground outside I couldn't get a picture of it, it's so low! What's funny is now it feels like we are leaving a light on in the bathroom the way it shines in there now!
Here you can see the wiring installed for the Bathroom along with the drain lines. One last piece of trim above the siding and the wall will be enclosed at last!
On the weekend of 3-4-2007, Kass & Rick finished up the siding on the wall and installed the new window, finally closing off the Bathroom! :)
|With our visit from the Sashman
(See Bedroom 3) he brought us the new window for the Bathroom! He
was able to take the broken glass out of the window in Alex's Room and
use a smaller piece of it to complete this window!

the new Bathroom wall, header and window frame from Bedroom 2 through
wall between them.
from inside the Bathroom came out a little dark. Honey, could you
pull down the curtain? :)
of the window framing. Still need to work on the floor in here,
but big improvement!
2005, we replaced the wall between the Bathroom and Bedroom 2.
Removed most of the ceiling too.
of the new wall. We think the flooring should be done
professionally so we are leaving it unfinished for now.
|Here is the
original (?) clawfoot bathtub. It will need some restoring, but
it should be usable, by the shorter people in the family. ;)
cabinet will be re-located. I dont think it will stay in the
Bathroom, most likely we'll re-use it in the Basement.
the bathroom, 9-26-04. Replaced floor joists underneath & removed
old pipes and sink.
||The window literally fell apart when we took it out of the rotten wall.|
|Clawfoot bathtub still intact. Oddly enough the toilet is missing.||Working
cabinet and some of the ceiling damage back before we started restoring.
