The radio silence around here was due to the fact that we had a snafu in the renovation. First the City of Portland made us stop work due to a rogue inspector who thought we had taken down a load bearing wall. Then Christmas was a bit busier than usual for us this year. We took a trip with the whole family to Sunriver, Oregon about a week before Christmas, and then Ben's family came to visit us for a week and a half. So fun!
First a few photos from the family visit.

Spent the last couple days doing demo on our existing bathroom. It was awesome to take out our old, nasty vanity, and the cast iron tub. Tiling starts in a couple days. I can't wait! We are replacing the tub with a walk in shower.

|Done! At least it's spacious!|

We're making progress on the 2nd bath addition. For such a tiny bathroom, it's been a big headache. A lot of planning goes into such a tiny space. I agonized for weeks over the placement of the bathroom, and then where all the fixtures will go. But it's going to be worth it!
|Outside looking in. It's hard to get a good photo of such a small space!|
|Ben hard at work. I wasn't allowed to do much for a few weeks after my surgery, so I was in charge of photography and handing Ben tools. It was horrible!|
We've borrowed most of the tilling tools from the North East Portland Tool Library (NEPTL for the win), and we're doing the tiling ourselves, so we've been able to keep the cost manageable.

Not long after I made the bed this morning, I went to check on the dogs, Brian had buried himself under the covers.
