Bathroom Remodeling Project


Some of you who read this blog have seen our home in East Grand Rapids. For those who have not been to our house, it is an unusual property for this city as it has a very deep backyard. Most of the homes near us have much smaller yards than ours. The land upon which our home sits is what gives the property its value. The two bathrooms in the house are 1960s vintage and they have been telling us since we moved in almost 7 years ago that they needed a facelift. Well, things have finally settled down enough for us to move ahead with Phase One, the remodeling of the main bathroom. We settled on a contractor and found out after we started negotiations with them that the owner is a former Navy Supply Corps Officer! I suppose that it is not surprising that we liked this company. We signed a contract a few weeks ago and today we went to the design center and selected the hardware for the cabinets. The production manager told us that they expect to start the demolition of the current bathroom on 6 December. He is hoping to complete the project in about two weeks. They also gave us a discount for letting them do the work in December, which is usually a slow month for work for them. Dee and Samson and I are not going anywhere for the month so it was a logical fit to "let" them do the work and take the discount. Look for more updates and photos from the demolition and construction on this blog.
