Can it be?

Yes. The final installment of the bathroom saga.

It’s taken us about three weekends to finally completely finish the thing up. The tiling project was hugely time-consuming and I figure I glued about 275 individual tiles and did two rounds of grouting. Then there were hours and hours of removing excess grout. The end product looks great — but man, it was a lot of work. Which pretty much sums up the experience of the entire project, which we officially called at 3:00 yesterday afternoon, almost three months to the day from when we started ripping out soggy drywall. So here it is: the final chapter.

  1. Great job on the bathroom. Sorry you’re tiling experience was so time consuming ~ it must have been hard on your back bent over like that!! The end result looks worth it though.
