I’ve been mentioning “bathroom remodel” here a little bit in passing but spared you the month’s worth of back and forth after I realized my plans to upgrade the master bathroom just weren’t going to work (short version: most things would have been a compromise for budget, so I’m just going to wait).
Lest you think I’m a badass who can rip out floors, my role is similar to Toby’s here: inspect and be very interested, but hide under the bed during the actual work (not literally, but I didn’t plan to take time off to help Dad, which I now regret).
And the only reason I can make any of this fit my “budget” is because I am forcing my dad to do hard labor for free. So thanks, Dad. Toby thinks all your work is top-notch and I do too.
