This Old House II

Well this the second part in my series. If you want to catch it from the begining stop by here And for a good laugh about this old house and how dumb we are check out here.
Today we will talk about our glorious contractors did last week. We asked them to put up a vanity light fixture for us because this is what the house came with. It was too high for me to use and to low for Jason to use. And to top it off, it was crazy ugly. It had to go.

We had more pretty wallpaper under it. I am thinking about striping the paint off the walls so we can go back to this for the whole bathroom.

This is what it looked like when they were done. Well, not exactly. They ended up having to cut a huge hole in the wall behind the mirror to fish the wiring through. There was sheetrock dust all over the whole bathroom. They don't do clean up. So this is what it looked like after we spend an hour in there cleaning.

They are also replacing a bunch of the windows. The panes in the old ones a popped and fill with condensation. The condesation dries and leaves behind dirt. Again they had to go.

And here we are. I think they look really nice. Far more energy efficent too. We are just going to put some caulk around the outside and we will be good to go.

Have a great day!!

Very nice job on the windows - those lines give it a wonderful graphic quality.
