LIVING & WORKING IN A CONSTRUCTION ZONE

temporary outdoor facilities

The west coast Reeds are into Day 12 of a complete upstairs bathroom makeover. The project will be finished in two weeks. The family is currently using the outdoor shower (with the old bathtub/shower rigging), two water closets, and the utility sink. No complaints from the 14 year-old and 12 year-old, even after a 6:30 am shower in the cold rain.The room was 8.5 by 6.5. We’ve used half of a large closet to create space for the custom shower and steam room. We are adding new lighting, exhaust system, laundry chute, and a basin. The (original) 110 year-old bathtub remains.

Louise and I are acting as project managers. All of this done with graph paper plans and an unlicensed contractor.

  1. Like all remodeling projets, I’m betting that this one will finally be completed by our visit in the first week of December. But then, I’m often wrong and I hope I am on this one.

  2. There are complaints from the 12 year-old! Coming out of the shower at 6:30 with rain and 45 degree weather is not good living!! – Kelsey

  3. Very sweet. 90 per cent complete.

    Photos next week. Using a shower curtain, the family is now bathing indoors.

    The big ticket item, an 8.5 by 4.5 glass wall (with door and transom) will be intalled next week. Steam to follow.
