We’re nearing the finish line!

Sun, 19 Jul by melodykilbank

No matter how organized you are and even if you have a project plan, there is always things in a renovation which are unique and can set things back on the time line.

This project there have been 2 concerns which took longer to resolve than hoped. One was the bath tub and the tub wall surround. A mistaken purchase on Kijiji, because I didn’t know much about surrounds, a replacement tub which was 59.5 inches and didn’t come with a wall surround, and a mistaken purchase for a new surround which didn’t fit because it was 60″ and finally….the right solution. The tub it in and walled!! Pictures to follow next week!!!

The second concern has been repairing the gypcrete flooring surface. There had been some spots where there was some erosion which we had to fill in before flooring. My contractor and I did some research through concrete companies and gypcrete companies. We finally have the answers to using the right product to fill the spots! The floor is patched properly.

That being said there has been significant progress this week! So exciting!

The flooring is in!!! That means as of now every surface of the unit has been redone! What a difference!

The cabinets are in their final resting place and secured!

Next week we hope to have final pictures for you before we stage it!!!

Stay tuned!

Nothing like a coat of paint to…..

>>>……┬ámake a place feel like it is your own. I love the smell of a freshly painted room. It make you feel like everything is really clean! The odors from the many years of cooking, smoking and living are GONE!! Also, there’s such noticeable progress in a project once the paint is on the walls!

So this past week the unit is completely painted and the bathroom vanity and kitchen cabinets are installed. The swing doors are installed and the baseboards and casings are painted and ready too!

The delays this week have been trying to find a tub wall surround to fit and after 2 attempts, the 3rd one is going to work!!! What a learning process that was!!

All in all we are a little behind schedule, but every obstacle has had a reasonable solution!

Still aiming for August 1st!

Making a List and Checking it Twice

Wed, 01 Jul by melodykilbank

This is REALLY happening!

As soon as the demos begin, it becomes all-too-real. Out with the old and out-dated, making way and space for the new/ newer up-graded (and income producing)!


I’ve included a photo ofour contractor and plumber, onsite. Can I just say what difference in our peace-of-mind having these trusted professionals in from the ground floor is making- even at this early stage! Again, my husband is still heaving that huge sigh of relief, and in turn my life on the home front continues, mostly, as usual…except for balancing project expense sheets, and taking photos and checking in with the progress, each day- it actually feels fun…making my daily lists and feeling the satisfaction of checking off each item, one, by one…I love to see things coming together!
