      Now I am in the phase of comparing the line items from Contractor C and D bids.



      Contractor D know what dem talking bout. They are into getting a few things up to code - the drain in the current basement shower is not up to code.

        What you can do is ask contractor C what is up to code and not and that will tell you how ready they are to go on their own. Master Carpenter is good but they also know how to take short cuts

          Week 5 of Project

          Some before and IN PROGRESS pictures


          Before: they tore down walls from previous bathroom and hobby room. Toilet just temporarily stored next to old furnace. In far corner is freezer. "Rat nest" of electrical wires dropping from ceiling.

          In Progress: Wall put up between laundry area and bathroom. (You can't see the bathroom in this photo.) Plumbing installed for washer, dryer, and utility shower. Recessed lights installed. Floor tiles and some wall tile installed.

            During this phase my 30-year old furnace died I went ahead and replaced the entire HVAC system with high efficiency furnace and AC. Also replaced water heater.

              Another before and IN PROGRESS comparison.



              Before: the basement exit door is next to laundry area. I had them tear out a wall so that explains some of the hanging electrical wiring.

              In Progress: not a good comparison picture but laundry moved to make space for a kitchenette with sink, microwave and cabinets. New exit door and new ceramic floor tiles.

                            I seriously considered tankless. But research shows I would not recover costs for a long time. So I went with an efficient 50 gallon w.h.

                              Love the blue of the bathroom. Can't wait to see the finished project.

                                Peasie just noticed you did the recessed light in the shower. Somebody looked on me strange when I said I was doing that. Absolutely love it. ..
