Mon June 9 ~ those precious bathroom doors and other cool stuff

There was quite a rain storm tonight. I love the sound of heavy rain when indoors. And not only do I get to hear it, I have a great view of it! Through my beautiful kitchen windows of course! Even Cody exclaimed, "Mom, I LOVE it when it rains! Look at the hurricane!" as he watched lots of tree movement.

I love it too. And I also love all the new changes that took place today.

Vic and Ralph came in the AM and before I was out the door to work, 1/4 of the tile around my tub was sitting IN my tub. It was the most beautiful crashing sound I've ever heard! I've now figured out these two flat out like 'wrecking' stuff. They sure make me smile watching them together. :)

When I returned back home, I was nervous to see how much water damage was around the shower from old leaking issues. I peeked in and it was perfect. Dry, not a spec of dust to be seen.. amazing. Was Janette here?!?

So I ran downstairs because Vic really wanted to move the hardwood flooring out of the basement and in another room so we had room to paint. WOA... basement looks huge! And so clean!

Josh had been working on the gyproc again and it's looking incredible. We are getting there! By week's end, I'll be slapping around some paint me thinks...

And the plan was for Paul the plumber to come by and peek at things.. if not today, another upcoming day soon.

And YES, that silly pocket door in the ensuite that's been dragging on the floor for who knows how long is hanging on a beautiful new bracket! This is a VERY big deal around here. Cody is so use to things in limbo, he ran into that bathroom and I had to smile. I yelled after him, "Cody, you can CLOSE the door now!" "I can?!? Ohhhhhh!" Doors on a bathroom, just a great great concept.

Seems we have a dilemma with bathroom doors...

~ main bathroom door knob fell off and locked me inside. I removed the entire handle.
~ whatever I taped over that door knob hole kept falling off. See-through door! (what a waste of door)
~ bathroom downstairs has NO door - it was an ugly old brown one loaded with dog scratches and a huge hole from a previous owner so I decided to ditch it rather than live with it, forcing myself to get it replaced one day. No door is better than ugly, right?? heh..
~ ensuite had a broken door - pocket door fell off track and door was trapped inside wall (as far as I was concerned, a nearly impossible situation until the guys saved the day)

So today, pocket door was fixed, AND I put a door handle on the main bathroom door! Two down, one to go.

Never, NEVER take a bathroom door just for granted...

Thanks so much guys, for your help today. With it all.
