well after 11 years working on the house
i finally got the bathroom done
it started here

that didn’t last to long once i got the roof on
i cut myself a living quarters 11×19 in the house (20×40)
and made a bathroom 5’x7’ and a kitchen 6’x7’
with the rest for a bed and some cabinets for clothes and the TV

that got all torn out and became the kitchen
and this new bathroom
7’x11’ was moved to the new addition (20’x40’)
the cabinet have been here for a couple of years
but just now i got the doors and drawer faces on
baseboard heater and trimmed out floor and shower/tub italian tile
(the cheapest i could find) lol
and some throw rugs

i’m pretty happy to have something done here finally
an inspiration to keep going and finish the rest of the house
and build my shop it has been in the house all along
taking all the space and making dust everywhere
the kitchen is almost done too
and the living room just needs some more strip flooring
and trim and new paint overall coming along good

after a life of working on everyone else’s projects
it’s nice to have something comfortable
of my own

thanks for looking
have a great holidays !

You’ve come a LONG way, baby!


Yep… a huge improvement!

You’re sure an artist!

You seem to make something from virtually nothing!

That panel… awesome design… simple materials… Tile… plural… tiles just arranged…

You really have Vision!

Thank you.

Congratulation on the bathroom.
Looks quite a bit better than the spade and a sandstorm…
You sure deserve a good home.

As everyone above has stated David, great work. I am curious, is the colorful design on the cabinets an applied decal or is it individual pieces in-layed into the cabinet doors?
