…Buildling Series – Buildling a Home

Or renovating a home as we are still on our first place. The “master bath” was probably my favorite bit of construction because it was so – much – work. We knew we would be inhereting a yellow, pink or green bathroom when bying in ourneighborhood. Guess which one we got.

I fondly referred to it as mint chocolate chip. And I was happy to see it go.

Oh my! This is what you get for the money living 10 minutes from Washington, DC.

Lots of trash bags to clean up the following. Deep breath.

Oh look, there’s metal netting holding all that green on the wall. Didn’t know that before we started.

Might be my favorite picture of DH. No looking back.

And what is worse, we had to somehow get all the rubble to the street and the country to pick it up.

Ah, but we prevailed.

Travertine tile, a pedestal sink and new hardware. I have to say, it’s a bit sad because 4 short years later a bulldozer came ripping through the roof pulling out all that stone.

Is that a little chip of tile I see?

Question for Brent-the-Builder on tiling, demolition, etc? Post and he’ll answer!



  1. HA! I’ve been wondering what’s behind my baby blue and **gulp** peach tiled walls. Gotta love these post-war homes. We’re just down the parkway in Alexandria 🙂 When can I expect Brent?
