Well, as Loulee had mentioned, the stress was real high here. It's one thing to buy locally, where you can travel back and forth with in a moments notice..but 4 hours away, is a long distance to travel. Not bad, but long.
I showed Dh, why I wanted the measurements, I can now get prices on things, I haven't had to purchase before..tiles, "Pergo" flooring, maybe carpet... I had no idea what the prices could have been..and now I have a small clue.
I can also make a plan of attack on the rooms, which one first..etc.
So, I have decided, we will attack the bedrooms first, and make them ready for occupancy. Before I can though, I have to wait to get an electrician up there...sigh....so..since money is not an option for that right now, I can begin to plan the upstairs bath.
The contractor, determined, the bath upstairs isn't large enough...OK...and I need it larger why? In order to enlarge the bath, one bedroom had to be decreased in size...ummm...no? I don't want to go about changing things drastically in the house, I don't mind putting the money into it, but first things first. I think if I decide down the road to have a larger bath..it can be done..
My basics are prepping the rooms for insulation,paint, carpet...and the actual bath..I am hoping to spare the tub/sink/and toilet. They are original to the house, at least the upstairs ones are. The downstairs bath, doesn't seem so..it looks like a later addition to the house. I will keep it as a bath, but it needs some new fixtures. I think first is a new toilet..we can use the sink for a while till it's time to redo that bath, I just want to make it usable in the meantime.
Now, tiling...what style is in? (laughing) I know what I like.....probably can't afford that much to tile the room, I am thinking of the floor, and 1/2 way up the wall...
DO I choose a color? Do I keep it simple...I like white, but white isn't a good choice for me...any suggestions?
