Plumbing resurrection (partial)

shower_fixtures.jpg

Somehow I’ve gotten a day late on noting reconstruction milestones. One of the plumbers installed fixtures yesterday. There were several snags, including that the new toilet tank leaked (drip, drip), and so he took it away with him. He did have the shower fixtures, so that when I step in there now it feels closer to normal—absent the door, of course!

Please note: the shower head looked relatively normal-sized in the manufacturer’s photos (both on web and in print catalogue), although in real life it seems, well, outsized. HOWEVER, I can’t wait to enjoy the whole new shower experience.

And I love the new built-in shelving that The Tile Guy made using pieces of bullnose. (The brown paper is protection installed by the painter and obviously will be removed—sometime soon.)
