The Bathroom Takes Shape

Aaron spent the past few weeks running the pipes for the plumbing, making sure the sink fit perfectly in it’s spot, cutting & attaching the vinyl panels on the bath tub walls & creating shelves for bathroom storage. They were all done as separate projects, but the day he built the toilet, it all came together.

If you look closely, you will see that the toilet is a box with a seat on it. Once in use, it will be furnished with a bucket and fresh sawdust. Yes, it will be our very own litter box….(eek!) I’ll let him tell you about future septic solutions which include a machinist friend whose interested in making black & gray-water tanks to be attached underneath the house. In the meantime, I’m becoming ever-more grateful for modern-day plumbing.

Since weight is an issue, the shelves were designed with holes in them as a way to lighten the load of unnecessary material. After Aaron made all the cut-outs, I sanded and primed the shelves. We choose ‘Brook Trout’ for the accent color in the bathroom – a dark gray-ish brown. The shelves will be that color in the next couple of weeks. I love the shelves. They are spacious & appear to be quite practical without taking up too much visual or personal space. And they undulate. That was my favorite word in Art History. Undulate. This was one of the descriptions for the surrealist architecture found in Antoni Gaudi’s Casa Mila Barcelona in Spain. I was always pleasantly surprised when that slide showed up on the test!

The shelves also remind me of the Flintstones for some reason, but I’m not quite sure why. Maybe I should catch up on this blast from the past and find out what specifically it is… ‘Flintstones, Meet the Flintstones….’

So now that the bathroom is complete (for the most part) we are officially able to focus on the design & implementation of the kitchen. Stove, fridge, sink & cabinetry… YabaDabaDoo!
