Guess what happened over the weekend at our house? We finally installed the insulation and hardy backer in the shower in our master bathroom. The bathroom renovation is in full swing! Yay!!
We are SO excited! After many, many months of demolition, delays and simply not enough time to get things done, we are making some wonderful progress on our bathroom! I am so thankful my husband is so handy. He did all of the work on the bathroom renovation except the plumbing thus far. Even though it has taken a long time, we’ve saved an incredible amount of money by doing it ourselves. We are finally are able to see how the bathroom is going to look when it is finished! I am loving it already.
Previously the old soaker tub and surround took up the majority of the bathroom. Not only was it enormous and plastic, it was unattractive and unused. It was very labor intensive to remove it all, but I’m so glad we did. (See how big it was?)
Now the bathroom feels so much larger and the new tub will be smaller and prettier. We took the opportunity to make the shower larger while we were at it. The plumber came back last week to finish the rough in and set the shower pan. (I think it was his fourth trip.)
The Tile-Redi shower pan and niche system is terrific! (You can visit their website www.tileredi.com for more information and product line.) The pan is very light weight and you can adhere the tile directly to the pan. Once the pan was set in concrete, my husband attached the flashing making it ready for the next step. Below you can see the shower pan in place and the newly constructed half wall.
We added a half wall to separate the shower from the tub area and included a niche to house shampoo and soap out of the way as well as a small corner bench. When the bathroom is complete the first thing you see when you walk in the bathroom will be the beautiful tub, shower and chrome fixtures.
The new fixtures are polished chrome. We decided on Carrera Marble for the flooring and I think it will all tie in nicely together. This week we are getting quotes for the tile. Once the tile is complete the plumber will return and set the tub and fixtures into place. Slowly but surely we are getting there! Meanwhile we can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Can you see it?
I absolutely love your website.. Excellent colors & theme.
Did you develop this site yourself? Please reply back as
I’m hoping to create my own site and would love to know where you got this from or exactly what
the theme is named. Thank you! http://www.yahoo.net
Happy to help. Send me a personal email at firstname.lastname@example.org with some info on your idea and I will shoot you back a few pointers that could help.
I’m really impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your weblog.
Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Anyway keep up the nice quality writing,
it is rare to see a nice blog like this one nowadays.
Without the equipment, it could appear to be a wise
wing chair with a contemporary black look.

Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog
(well, almost…HaHa!) Great job. I really loved what you had to
say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!

It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much
more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to
create your theme? Excellent work!
Thank you so much for your kind words! My son and one of his business partners designed my blog for me. I think they did a great job too!
Admiring the commitment you put into your blog and in depth information you offer.
It’s nice to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same
old rehashed information. Excellent read! I’ve bookmarked your site and I’m including your RSS feeds to my Google account.
Thank you for your kind words Marbella and so glad you are following along! Much appreciated!

find things to improve my web site!I suppose its ok to use a
few of your ideas!!
Hi, thank you for commenting on my blog! Can you send me the name and information of your blog or website? Also, if you use any of my content and/or pictures I would kindly request full credit and a link back to dellsdailydish. Thank you!
Hi would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?
I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having
a tough time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
The reason I ask is because your layout seems
different then most blogs and I’m looking
for something completely unique. P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had
to ask! https://e27.co/jamesarocha
Hi! I use WordPress. Good luck starting your blog! Best, Dell

Hi! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog.
Is it very difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very
techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any
ideas or suggestions? Thanks
Hi, there! Thanks for your question. I am a bit technology challenged myself so my son actually set up my blog for me. So, my suggestion would be to get in touch with someone who knows their way around Word Press and a hosting site for more information. There are also several blogs out there that give tutorials on how to set up your own blog. I hope this helps a little! Good luck! Dell
Hey very nice blog!
Thank you so much!
Hi there, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar
one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam
comments? If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything you can suggest?
I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so any support is very much appreciated.
Hi, there! Thank you for taking time to read my blog! And yes, I do get lots of spam comments as well. I’m currently working on how to remedy the problem. If I find a solution, I’ll be sure to share. Best of luck to you! Dell
I am impressed with this website, really I am a fan.
Thank you for your kind words! And thank you for following along! xo Dell
Excellent blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?
I’m hoping to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a
paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely overwhelmed ..
Any tips? Bless you!
Thank you so much for your nice words! My son actually helped me set up my blog because I’m not that computer savvy. If you are interested in starting your own blog, I would definitely encourage you to get started as soon as possible! I really enjoy the WordPress format so you may even want to contact them directly to help you get started. Some bloggers even have step by step instructions on how to start a blog. Best of luck to you! xo Dell
Your style is really unique compared to other people I’ve read stuff from.
I appreciate you for posting when you’ve got the opportunity, Guess I’ll just book mark this
