Bathroom Within A Hairsbreadth of Completion

Yesterday started out to be a kick back day, no one was in the mood to do the lumberjack thing and I was keen to finish up on all the small tasks which needed to be done to complete the new bathroom.  So I puttered around for awhile, did some touch up painting and then went outside to pull some weeds out of the flower garden while waiting for the paint to dry.  That ended up becoming a four and a half hour lawn mowing experience.  Yes Kitpu shack has a LOT of lawn, acres of it in fact, and it takes a long time to mow.  Even with three people working on it.  But I digress.  So last night I finally put some sealant on the grout lines and I thought that was going to be the final touch.  (But alas, things did not work out that way, we have to fix part of the wall which somehow got missed during the mudding and sanding process.  So here are a couple of pictures of the almost finished project. 

Just a reminder, this is what the room use to look like.
This is what it looks like now.
This is the new bath tub.
This is the new sink area.

So as you can see things are pretty darn close to being completed.  I still have to get a curtain, although there isn't a huge concern that the local deer population is interested in my bathroom activities, I know that any visitors may be a little more comfortable if they had some privacy.  The old door is still on the hinges, but I figured once all the rooms are done then we will replace all the doors in the house at the same time.  And I am allowing the paint to cure on the newly built cupboards before adding anything which may become a permanent attachment.  So there we go, one room within a hairsbreadth down, six more to go. 

Here is the progress on room number two.  (It was a small secondary bedroom and will continue to be a small secondary bedroom.) I know it's really back lit but such is life.  This room also had that odd window up against the wall thing going on.  So we had to pull some of the gyprock off the side of the wall as well as the back wall in order to rip out the old window, and centre the new one in the room.  The room is starting to come together pretty good already.
