Day 113 - Let the renovations begin!

Peg and I have had a pretty busy weekend. On Friday the gentleman from Chez Ti Pere, one of Peg's favourite places, came to take the measurements for our kitchen and bathroom. We're redoing both rooms upstairs and upgrading the downstairs bathroom with a new toilet, sink and vanity. The thing with renovations is that one job inevitably leads to another. Since Friday we've visited the ceramic store and picked out our tiles, ordered new windows for the bathroom and kitchen, and purchased the following: kitchen and bathroom faucets, bathtub, bathroom and kitchen sinks, lights for the bathroom, two toilets and a microwave with a built in fan.
Now that most of the shopping is done we have to start the demolition and make sure we book the plumber and electrician. All the jobs are quite entertwined (or braided) so we hope we're able to choreograph it all. I'll be sure to keep you posted with the process with pictures and posts containing some complaining, excitement and no doubt some blunders. Oh, by the way, this picture is of the hoses that are contacted to our new bathroom faucets.
Let the renovations begin!

Oh yeah - I love 'before and after' pics! Great close-up on the hose - I like the pattern. Good luck on all the renovations.

The process is generally not fun, but the results will be worth it - keep reminding yourselves! :) Nice shot of the coils!
