You'd think this post would be about actually growing a Ghost Orchid but it is actually a metaphor for the 4 months it took to finally finish the Master Bathroom.
Building a new bathroom in your home can be a daunting task if you are mostly doing it yourself. It's surprisingly expensive and more surprisingly time consuming. There are layers and layers of foundational things that need to be done before you can even add water to the mix. Anyway, if you follow this blog, you know the history.
Btw, thank you to those of you who contributed to over 50,000 pageviews on our blog. We hope that you either learned something, or got a great laugh at the work we are performing on this 1898 Vic.
So it is the middle of May and we are about 97% finished with the Master Bath.
So let's get right down to the pics and the specifics:
First a pic of the demo from January,
We went with a color scheme and tile work that mimics a bygone era of the early 20th century. Apparently the "subway" look was very popular back then because of all the new subways that were operating in the western countries. The archway makes it feel like you are stepping into a subway to take a shower. Why? Why not??
