Vacation - Remodel Continued

Today was another long day, and it looks like tomorrow will be the same or longer.  Started the day at 8am, finally back to the hotel at 12:30am - with showers and whatnot, it'll be close to 2am before we hit the sack.  Tomorrow - or later today, if you want to think of it that way - starts by leaving the hotel at 7:30am...
We got a lot accomplished today.  Painting is a chore, but I'm really liking the way it's coming together.  The blue wall took 5 coats of paint, and the yellow took two.  We're mostly done with the white (it's actually a really, really light blue) in the living room, hallway, and stairwell - just a second coat in some areas to finish tomorrow.  Rolling doesn't take much time - it's the taping and cutting in that take the longest and have the least amount of show for the work done.
I didn't get pictures on my camera of the progress in the bathroom - but it's coming right along.  The sub-sub floor has been repaired and sub-flooring put in place.  The tub and sheetrock are in - we put down more leveling compound on the floors in preparation for the work tomorrow when we lay all the flooring - dining room/kitchen, bathroom, and landing.  Also have to finish the painting, install the bathroom components (toilet, counter, linen closet, etc.), install some lights and the doorbell... among other things.
It's coming together...  Everyone's been working hard, otherwise we'd never be able to make this happen, but we're all looking forward to the completion.  One more day...
