We're finally coming down the home stretch with this reno.
The solid bamboo floors were totally different from what we ordered, but they still worked with the space, so we went ahead with them anyways. I really wanted to do what we could to dampen the noise for our tenants downstairs, so we installed high density rubber padding underneath the hardwood, then nailed through everything at once. In the bathrooms, we installed NuHeat heated floors, and some really nice striated porcelain tile. Thank god we went with NuHeat, our master is over part of the garage, and it is ice cold when the floor is turned off. One thing that I will do differently next time, is to pay more attention to the bathroom fixtures and cabinets that we go with.We went with some cabinets that we liked, but it created a total nightmare for my plumber. The piping had to be installed in a way where it needed to be worked through a narrow passage, which was a real problem. In the end, my cabinets probably cost twice as much as originally thought. Next week, we have the finishers finishing, the carpets going in, paint touch ups, and the glass for the shower and the mirrors to be put in.
I'll post some shots of the finished product at some point next week.
