It was a late Saturday afternoon, just after Christmas when we found ourselves driving home from the cabin. The kiddos were snoozing in the back seat and we had an unexpected moment of peace to discuss the house. We are sure our lender will have numerous projects they want completed before we can close on the house so we best get started!
We decided that the upstairs half bath would be a small, quick and cheap job to ease our way into home renovations. The bathroom hasn't been functional since before we moved in. The toilet leaked and the sink hardware was broken so water to the bathroom had been long ago shut off. By the time we arrived home we were motivated to break ground on our very first soon-to-be-our-home project!!
To make things easy we decided Tom would head out to home depot that very evening and purchase a new toilet and hardware for the existing sink so we could have the bathroom up and functional in a day or two. As soon as we unloaded the car Tom headed up to do some measuring and I grabbed the camera so we could document our first project.
Here are the ugly before pictures.
I almost forgot to mention that the light didn't work either, which is why that little lamp with the bendy head is in the picture.
