Oh Yeah...


It's done!

The bath/bedroom project is officially complete! Last night was our first night back in our bedroom. It felt like we had moved into a new house. It turned out so well that I am so proud of myself I can hardly stand it! I figure I spent 28 long days (divided into weekends and days off) on the project. I can understand now why Habitat for Humanity requires the future inhabitants to work on their homes. All of a sudden I have a vested interest in my abode, and and am even more proud to be its inhabitant.

The picture above is of the bamboo floor before we started moving everything back in. At first the color variation in the wood was a tad disturbing, but as the pieces started accumulating, the overall effect was very pleasing.

Now that we have moved back into the bedroom and out of the dining room, my life should return to (somewhat) normal, and I can start posting more often again. I also plan to get back into the pastel quite heavily again. It's all a matter of priorities, and now that my shelter (one of man's 'needs') is back to normal, the rest of my life can continue as before.

Until next time!

That looks great Matt. I might have to pick your brain in the future about this. We hope to do a kitchen remodel at some point and I like the idea of bamboo. You should be very very proud sir. Thump your chest a few times, you've earned it.

Nice work, man. I'm remodeling my house too. It is so damn time consuming, and of course the work isn't easy. But I know when it is done I will have a feeling of personal satisfaction. And I know I will do a better job of taking care of it. :)
