On the Twelfth Month of Home Renovation…(November)

November was a little slower with the bathroom work (projects always slow down in the middle). Chris worked hard putting drywall compound all over the main bathroom – and dust all over the house.

After the drywall compound was in place, he put two coats of primer everywhere.

We shopped and shopped and shopped for tile and eventually bought some online. Of course before we could make the purchase we had to come up with a design for the tile – one for the floor and one for the bathtub surround.

While we were waiting for the tile to be delivered, we installed the cement board on the floor.

Then we got to tile the floor.

We grouted the tile, decided we didn’t like it, and removed the grout the next day (not as easy as it sounds!).

We then moved on to starting the tile work in the bathtub surround. We got a pretty good portion of this done before traveling for Thanksgiving.

It was about this time that we got embarrassed by our yard and decided to clean up a bunch of leaves.

Over Thanksgiving we ate a ton of delicious food, met our new nephew, and had my baby shower. It was a busy holiday but great to see a lot of family and friends!

Right before Thanksgiving, we got to see a preview of our baby and I started to get even bigger!

And that concludes this year’s Twelve Months of Home Renovation! Hopefully next year’s will have plenty of big projects complete!
