Is there any renovation project that doesn’t spill into the entire house? Not in my experience.
Though the bathrooms on which I’m currently working are on the second floor, I had to tear out the back wall of the pantry to get to the plumbing and run new electric. So most of the crap that was in the pantry is now on the dining room table, around which will be gathered 10 or so friends on Thanksgiving.
There’s no sense in re-building the pantry over the weekend; it’s going to become a small powder room when I get around to renovating the kitchen. And the current first-floor bath will turn back into its original form – a butler’s pantry.
That first floor bath is the one with a leaky tub – but it can hold a few boxes, and flats of soda, right? (I’ll simply re-hang the shower curtain to hide the mess.)
But I really should hang the door on the new guest bath…soon. Or at least hang a curtain.
