Okay, so Dad wants to see the progress, too. Here you go, Dad. Before, the bathroom didn't have a fan and the years of too-much moisture in the bathroom had cracked the paint and plaster and it really looked terrible. So, they covered the ceiling with a new piece of drywall to make it nice and smooth.
They also put up drywall to cover the gaping hole behind the sink. There was a vanity and sink here before the gutting. I'm going to have a lot of work to do to clean up that area before I paint. To save money, I'll be painting the walls and ceiling myself. I've already picked out the paint. To look at it, it just looks white, but when you compare it to another "white," you can see it has a touch of blue in it. The only color in the new bathroom will come from towels, shower curtain and any artwork I hang. I'm pretty sure at least one shell mirror will be going up on the wall. Don't worry, I'll take pictures.
I have one more day of work and then I'm off to sunny Florida. It's been so bitterly cold here, Florida is going to feel like paradise. I can't wait!
