It’s almost a year since I last updated you guys on House17. All the major renovations are done but I took longer than expected to settle in and get my rhythm going.
It’s 10 months now, since I moved in. The first few nights were challenging — I hardly sleep a wink. I would be jolted from my sleep by the “noises” of the house, then I’ll strain to listen, wondering whether I’ve been broken into. Paranoid, I guess.
But it’s all good now. I’ve gotten used to the groaning of the house as it settles in for the night, not unlike the snores of a sleeping partner.
So today, I’ll reveal the Main Bathroom Remodel! Finally.
First a brief recap of what I had to work with.
Main Bathroom remodel – before
It was a long and narrow master ensuite. (Which makes it really hard to get good photos). I gutted the whole thing, because I hated the row of stones set in cement with a vengeance.
Placement wise, I swapped the toilet and sink around to make better use of the space. I reused the large basin but got rid of the hefty wooden cabinet, which was showing signs of wear and tear plus water damage.
