DIY Network: I’m Floored! And Some Other Things…

A girl really grows tired of storing 4’x8′ underlayment boards against the wall in the dining room. If you’ve ever renovated any part of your home, you’ll appreciate that the whole house sort of gets flipped inside out in the process. I’m getting more and more eager to return to a place of normalcy, getting the toilet off the workbench in the basement, removing the tall stack of floor tiles from the guest bed, and exploring/assembling the vanity that’s still stored in the attic.

And don’t get me started on the number of tool bags, cans, and garbage bins that are dispersed through the office and upstairs landing… it’s a home improvement war zone.

One thing at a time. On Day 10, we came a whole leap closer to being able to have a finished bathroom floor once again (and we’re thisclose away from being able to shower again too).

See the whole update right here on DIY Network’s blog, The Pegboard.

Underlayment happiness.

If you missed the beginning of this bathroom renovation series, catch up for yourself by perusing these posts:

  1. A little video introduction and tour!
  2. An overview of the materials I’ve been purchasing! Because what DIY-crazed girl wouldn’t love tile shopping?
  3. And getting down and dirty with demolition!
  4. Training a beginner to repair a drain pipe and install a bathtub!
  5. Building custom shower shelving, and learning how to install HardiBacker.
  6. And learning more than I ever thought I’d know about shower valves and PEX.
  7. Four days of tiling. No exaggeration.
  8. And then we grouted our little hearts out.
