When we cut in half the metal shed that stoerd the milled lumber from out trees,(now that it’s all used up), one section went to storing firewood and the other half went to storing Dozy. But now Dozy (our little bulldozer), has to share the space with a small but usable shop space.
We added a partial wall and a door and window (all salvaged) to keep the elements at bay.I’m trying to figure out a way to make a door large enought for Dozy to get through so for now, a tarp will do. The LED lights you see in the first picture are powered by a battery charged by the solar panel on the roof. For now, Dozy has to stay outside as we have set up a workspace to build the concrete bathroom vanity counter. More on that later.
One of the great features of our master bathroom is under floor heating. We are using the Schluter Dietra Heat system. This consists of an uncoupling membrane (The orange dimpled mat). The dimples hold in the electric heating wires while protecting them from damage.
And then comes the tile.
Opps, I guess I got myself stuck into a corner.:-)These beautiful large format tiles will continue up the wall behind the toilet and vanity. There will also be a line of small river rock going across the wall.
Looks like we are getting a few days of nice weather so finally the stucco guys can finish up. With all the windows and doors protected the spraying fun began. It is quite a transformation.
We are very pleased with the color and so glad that it is finally done. It was beginning to look like our house might have to be surrounded by scaffolding until next summer. This break in the weather is just what we needed. I think you will agree, the result is pretty spectacular.
We have this interesting niche space between the pantry and the water heater housing, lots of neat curves, shapes and shadows. With the built-in bookshelf there is space for our cookbooks. Then with the $20 Habitat ReStore 3 drawer cabinet installed, we now have a place to keep paperwork and charge phones (notice the integrated charger and outlet), and of course the requisite junk drawer. We also installed this cool LED wall sconce to light up the space.
