This grasp rest room venture has been within the works for a really very long time, however I actually am sliding downhill in direction of the end line. Now that the water closet (rest room room) is nearly full, it solely leaves me with about three large tasks, and some ending particulars.
Once I really feel like I am not making good progress on a venture, it may be useful to look again and see how a lot I’ve achieved. Again on April 22, I made a listing of issues that also must be achieved within the rest room, and I got here throughout the checklist final weekend. I used to be stunned at how a lot has been achieved on that checklist!
Here is the April 22 checklist with all of the issues I’ve achieved crossed out.

Once I made the checklist on April 22, the lavatory seemed like this…
No bathtub, no faucet, no tiles across the high of the bathe, no progress within the water closet. Many of the trim is put in, however none is completed (wooden stuffed, sanded, polished, painted).
So whereas the lavatory progress is not what I anticipated by the top of July (I am hoping to be achieved with the bathe and not less than engaged on the house fitness center, if not the studio at this level), I am really tremendous with progress because it’s about 4 weeks out of three. the final month centered on our new van and getting Matt out of the home and discovering life outdoors our partitions. It’s very price pushing aside rest room and all different house tasks for some time (or making progress at a snail’s tempo for these 4 weeks).
So I’ve made fairly a little bit of progress, and I solely have a couple of tasks left. The end line is definitely beginning to present, and that is fairly fascinating.
On the similar time, I have been shifting from one venture to the subsequent, and as per my MO requirements I do not take the time to scrub up and separate between tasks, so issues have spiraled uncontrolled a bit.
So within the spirit of full disclosure, this is a take a look at the lavatory and residential fitness center aspect by aspect this morning…
Every of my main bed room renovations ultimately reaches this level, after which I’ve to cease and regroup earlier than I can transfer on and really end these ultimate tasks. And each time, I often have a couple of individuals freaking out at me. “What in regards to the flooring!?” “What in regards to the mud?!” Nicely, all I can say is that that is how I function, and by some means all of it works out in the long run each time.
The lavatory mess has spilled over to the house fitness center, as a result of that is the place I’ve to retailer every part for the lavatory, together with the bathroom, all of the wooden and trim, sink, faucet, paint, paint curler, and so forth.
So I will end the water closet immediately, and I will present you the way it seems tomorrow (with the cupboard and bathroom lights put in), after which I’ve to take a couple of days to type this mess out and rearrange every part so I can have loads of flooring house for construct dressers and cupboards.
I’ve typically dreamed of being a kind of neat, tidy individuals who do away with issues and clear up my workspace on the finish of the day, however I did not. That is the “actual” me, and I am not going to fake to be another person. I do know my tendency to make large messes is driving some individuals downright loopy, however I’ve simply come to just accept that I can by no means be a wonderfully organized particular person after I’m engaged on large tasks. I made my messes, and so they lastly acquired cleaned up, and every part labored out in the long run. A minimum of I realized to be extra organized in my every day life outdoors of my DIY tasks! So not less than there’s an enchancment there. However my DIY venture life will at all times collapse. That is simply my MO, so long as issues preserve going in the long run, I am tremendous with the mess within the center.
