Among other things we did weekend, we spent a lot of time and money at Lowe’s and Home Depot. Back when my mom was diagnosed with brain cancer and was in the hospital, it was decided that we would move my parents out to out home and take care of them. Well, a lot has changed. My mom has recovered to the point that my parents will not yet be moving in with us. At least for now.
Before her recovery, we all agreed that we needed to update our primary bathroom for my parents and put in a shower and remove the tub. Well, we have removed EVERYTHING out of the bathroom and now we are moving forward on the renovation.
Sidenote: Just found out we still have to chip up the tile on the floor.
- Cents To Save was included in “The Zombie Edition Carnival” at 101 Centavos
Shopping for new the new stuff was fairly easy. We went with the same tile that we put in our other bathroom at the rental. T
After picking up all the items for the bathroom re-model we went ahead and picked up a new water heater too. The water heater in the house is the original one, (19 years old) and we would rather be safe than sorry. Not shown is the water heater timer my husband is also installing. This way, you can set the time for the times you will actually need hot water and this will save on electrical costs. Oh…. and we picked up a ” insulating blanket” for the water heater too. The blanket is suppose to help with saving energy too.
