If you ever have to jump in it to use as an instant bomb shelter like in the movies the steel won't do you any good!!! Only cast iron tubs are good for that.

Or a tornado .

Poor hubby. He was up all night getting the space ready for the tub today. And already he's back to work, running here and there.... It's not even 7 am. So much for a day off. Trade off keeping toddlers out of his hair.... And a BJ tonight . Yeah, its transactional sex.... But its his bathroom too.

How do you add pics from mobile? Hubby set the tub and laid the floor yesterday. It looks better than I thought it would with the size of the tub... But it actually fits pretty perfect with plenty of open space to move around. Now I have to find my H's off switch as we can't afford to move any further on this yet. Faucets, tile surround, plumbing, electrical... Even though the services are free, material cost money. It's coming along

Okay so now we're on a break from completing the bathroom ($). Next up is designing my counter/vanity in there. At first I thought I wanted a normal vanity, one of the dresser looking ones. Changed my mind and actually going a bit on the less expensive side with H building our counter. A few options... black slate tiled floating counter top, at least where the sink is going (vessel), or raw walnut slab. I really like the slab idea and trying to go with both actually - it's a 50 inch wall and I want to make it about 40 inches across... So perhaps the tiled portion in the center and two slabs on either side.

Decisions decisions.

2nd time - I got the slate tile. Bamboo is already laid though. Believe it or not, my mother had about a pallet of the very slate I wanted. I knew she had it a few years ago, but she told me it was gone. I find it yesterday...lol. And we got a few small cedar trees were going to have milled for our counter tops. Sooooo.. cost of tub/shower surround = 0 dollars, cost of cedar countertops = $40 for milling.. this is turning out to be a fairly in expensive addition of a bathroom. Yay for me.

We did think about that... for a minute. Do you know how hard it is to get a wood floor up? There's probably a million very large staples to rip out. Okay not quite a million, but enough to make it a painful process

they should be nails.
not hard, especially for something as small as a bathroom.
i will come and do it for you, just so the floor can be done right the first time.

well, second time :/

Hah... He most certainly has worked down there... In fact, that's where he's scheduled this week coming up . You do electrical? Hmmmm... I might want to see what you would charge for this job... Our other guy is dragging his feet, and we are getting close to wanting to get that done.
