Last Week's Installations

I guess I forgot to post last week with our latest progress. Since it was beyond our skill, we hired the plumber to come back and put in the shower head in our master bathroom. It's a little bigger than I realized, but I love it. Sadly, we can't use it until the glass is in.
We have the quote and just need to order the glass, but the latest delay is our fault. We want to do a bit more varnishing and paint the room again, but it got hot in Portland. We suck at doing work when it's hot. I'll probably go ahead and order the shower enclosure in order to give us a deadline; that usually motivates us to get in gear.

Oh, and we got the soapstone installed in the basement bathroom now that we have a mostly functional bathroom upstairs.
We obviously still need to install the Kohler Fairfax faucet.
We had this style faucet in our last house and we liked it. I am way less fussy about having historic reproductions in our basement bathroom.


  1. I hear you about working in the heat. The shower look like a wonderful way to cool off. I don't want summer to end but I could use some sunny 70 degree weather to help get a lot of work done.

  2. What brand of shower is this setup?

    1. I'm sorry for the delay in answering; I didn't see this comment as it was in the spam folder. It is a brand called "Elizabethan Classics." It looks like the website where we originally bought has discontinued this brand but it's pretty widely available if you do a google search.
