We just finished our bathroom remodel! It was a lot of work so we thought we would show and tell. Since it is hard to get a good picture we figured we would throw in a substitute. Our bathroom looks a lot like this one except ours is mostly white and six by seven feet.
We worked hard! Since we moved each of the fixtures to new locations we had to put in new supply and waste lines. The crawl space is so cramped that we could show professional contortionists new moves.
I am pretty handy. I knew it would be a challenge but I supposed it would go faster. Why is it that so many jobs take 3.8389 times more time and energy to complete than you calculate?
This was a baptism to undergo. There were moments where the exasperations came in spasms, mostly in the legs. I deliberately took breaks to go to the hardware store four times a day just to visit with compassionate people and expend some useless cash.
At one point as I was in the crawl space with my left knee behind my neck and back pressed again nails coming down from the floor. Things were not coming together. I cried out to the Lord for His mercy! At that moment I turned toward the foundation and saw something I hadn’t seen before. One of the builders had drawn a cross in mortar on the foundation wall. They used a finger to make little lines like rays of light around the cross.
Talk about a revelation of grace! God had sent that man especially to build our house. His act of worship four decades previous was a consolation. I am glad to report, that thanks to the grace of God, no acts of reckless bath-rage unsettled our community and the project was satisfactorily completed.
I hope you get the picture.
