Bathroom update: close ups

There are of course many things for which I am thankful this Thanksgiving, but one particular thing is the bathroom project that has kept me happily puttering away in the basement, sawing, hammering, plastering, plumbing and playing at being a mason.

The room is now completely enclosed, making wide shots pretty difficult, so I thought I would post a series of close up photographs. These could carry the title "Materials" as each one focuses on a different type of building material.

Tile and mortar:

Gypsum, paper, copper and lead: (technically "lead free solder" but that doesn't sound quite as romantic)

Gypsum and paper:

Pine and steel:

And one attempt at a wide shot.

This is the entrance to the bathroom, taken from my shop. The shower is just behind the door, the toilet and sink will be to the right as you enter the room. Still to come- door trim, several coats more of mud on the walls, paint, grout for the vertical tiles, and the last step will be installing the toilet, sink, and shower door. And those will all have to wait until we return from Atlanta, where we join the Claspy clan for a southern Thanksgiving!
