Lovely Yellow Canna and Elephant Ear

Our neglected garden is hanging in there! LOL Well to surprise us our newest yellow Canna bloomed, we've been waiting for it all season and here it is! So pretty!

Gerard's mother gave us some baby Elephant Ears and WOW is it taking off!
Hopefully with the weather cooling off soon we can get our garden in the ground!

Spa Tub is IN

Well the other tub/shower we put in when I was cleaning it I found CRACKS so it had to come out and be returned. So then we decided to get the spa tub since it was the same price and well...better! LOL
First some mortar and then 4mm plastic over the top (the manual specified to do that) to support the tub.
Proof that I was able help him get the tub in...yup it's a miracle! LOL Usually they are too heavy for me but this one was easier because it's a drop in without an apron.
It then needed more mortar to support it.
Gerard then built the last stringer. It's all hooked up now and after the cement and mortar dries we can test it and then tile.

Bathroom Renovation

Well we got that wall out, and we got a bigger door for the bathroom too since the old one was dinky.
With help from our good friend Jon (who is a plumber) we got the tub and shower surround in as well as the new shower set (don't know what it's called)! It couldn't have been done without Jon's help!!! THANK YOU!!!

Demo for Guest Bathroom!!!

Woo Hoo ripping out the wall closet that took up too much space in the bathroom!

See? Tall people would knock their knees on it!

You see that hole in the wall? Yeah you guessed it there was a cutting board mounted over it with the toilet paper roll attached...needless to say we removed it and mounted the TP in a better place!
The shower didn't work so we have to tear it out fix the plumbing...also the tub is rusted.
Hee hee all too happy to rip the silly space stealing closet out!
Yup proof of me doing some work too!
P.S. for demo that $5 pry bar is PRICELESS
