    Remodeling YUK

    We are having our bathroom remodeled...3 weeks now...dust everywhere. The house is a mess and it is useless to clean. My sewing room is in the front of the house and I have to keep everything under plastic to keep clean. I know it is going to be worth it, but oh my, what a mess. I'm going to have to wipe everything in the house down, including walls, when they are done. The best thing is the cabinet maker is going to build me wall to wall..floor to ceiling cabinets in my sewing room to hold my fabric. I will post pics when its done.

    Remodeling is messy, but the results...oh, la, la. Please post pictures of those sewing room cabinets. We're going to have a lot of sewing envy on this board when those get posted! Well, I'll be envious, anyways.

    Don't give up, it is worth it in the end! I will be joining you in the building end of things shortly!! My darling hubby has agreed to build me a new playroom!! I am so excited, as soon as the paperwork for the platting the two properties gets completed, the builder gets to come back and hopefully get started. So, keep the faith, it is going to be worth the dust and the mess and all the hassles.

    Similar situation here ... remodeling the family room though. And like you, my builder is also going to be building shelves in my sewing room closet when he's done with this job. We are doing a trade ... we're trading him our 2001 Ford Pick-Up for a long list of jobs in the house!!

    I can remember a bathroom remodel when the only thing working in the bathroom was the cold water in the tub. And yes, it was the ONLY bathroom in the house!!

    Hugs, it will be over soon and you will be so glad you had it done!

    Can you also put heavy plastic over the doorway to keep out the dust in your sewing room? You are wise to cover everything with plastic.

    I am right there with you on the bathroom and the mess

    Bathroom got gutted and putting new stuff in. So far the biggest dust was the gutting, but my Contractor has been doing a great job.
    I hope this Wednesday I can enjoy the shower in my new bathroom.
    My living room, dining room, our 2 bedrooms have been draped in black plastic sheeting for almost 2 weeks now. Some of our stuff we put in plastic bins or garbage bags and are down in the basement. So hang in there and soon both us will be able to enjoy our new bathrooms

    We did a bathroom remodel about 3 years ago...it was fun as we only have one bathroom..lol. But we managed and it was well worth all the mess and inconvenience when it was finished. Hang in there

    At least you can see the end ... we gutted our bathroom many years ago, just got the toilet reinstalled - and got the phone call that my mom had died (totally unexpected). Fast forward 30 (yes it took that long) after two false starts because FIL a) got sick b) got worse... after he died we started the bathroom for the second desparately needed remodel (Think 4 teenagers endless showers!). That was two years ago - and DH still has to put in the baseboard and thr trim, install the helf over the sink and put up the towl rings and hooks.

    I think everyone hates the mess of remodeling but boy, do we love the results. You have something extra special waiting for you when it's done. Wow, new fabric storage, congratulations.
