I've spent the past month keeping up with the garden and running about like one of those animals at the zoo that hold still for a moment and then take off with a burst of speed. Nope, can't remember the name.
Anyway, the backyard looks pretty much the same, just a bit more grown in. It's actually taken quite a bit of work and lots of added plants, but the main area is still rather a dirt pit.
However, there's been a bit of a focus change - the upstairs bathroom decided to begin leaking into the downstairs bathroom, so the renovation timeline for that got moved up. I had it demo'ed on Monday, and just ordered all the fixtures. Hopefully the reconstruction will begin next week, plumber willing...
We had originally thought that we would turn the bath/toilet 180 degrees and make the upstairs little nook room into the bathroom (it has a window!) and make the current bathroom the closet. The first estimate I got to move the plumbing was ridiculously expensive though, so we nixed that option. I'm waiting for the second plumber, but in gutting the current bathroom we gained a ton of height and a wide skylight (why do people drop ceilings???) so it's already looking more spacious. Stay tuned for more updates as the project actually progresses!
