True. Crime. Architecture. Period. Feel. Murder. Mayhem. Progress. Congruent. Yes.
26. I am thankful for beautiful architecture. I’m fascinated by building. Not the building I have done, which is none, or might do, which is also probably none, but by the amazing structures all around me. Capturing form, light, and harnessing the marriage between use and beauty, I am constantly in awe of form, everywhere.Continue reading “Thankful Everyday – The Twenty-Sixth”

A Dip In The Pool Anyone?, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Once the inspection is done the shower liner will be drained, the next layer of cement put in over the top of the liner, the wonderboard in the shower can go up, and they are ready to tile. We’re hoping tiling will actually be ableContinue reading “A Dip In The Pool Anyone?”
Wonderboard, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. The tilers started last Wednesday. Brought all of their supplies out and put them into the bathroom so Thursday they could get started with the shower pan liner and other prep work. That also meant we could put the big window in since we no longer needed to have itContinue reading “Wonderboard”
One Sided, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Mom and Don and Kev all helped us work on the place last weekend. Kev and Don did siding, Mom, Karen and I painted.

We Have Paint, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Imagine it with white crown molding, white baseboards, and dark brown (almost black) wood doors on the right where there water heater/linen closet will be. Imagine blue/gray tile in the shower. Imagine light colored tile on the floor. It’s going to be beautiful…. or, we paint again. HaContinue reading “We Have Paint”
Karen’s Saw, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. We have to give Karen’s saw the love and honor it deserves by devoting an entire post to it. So without further ado… her saw.
The Niche, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Kev designed our bathroom addition and while he was at it he asked if we might like to have a couple of recessed areas in our bedroom for the tv and other stuff. We said heck ya. Here they are. TV and such will go in the top area,Continue reading “The Niche”
Primer, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Sheet rock got finished right before last weekend… meaning we could start slapping some paint on in the addition. Which meant we had to decide on color. The final choice…. gray. The tile in the shower will be gray/blue tile with white grout. Glass accent tiles are gray, white, andContinue reading “Primer”
Siding, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Since I’ve been somewhat remiss in posting the last week or so I thought I’d throw out a few posts on the addition project to get everyone up to date. So here we go… Kev hard at work starting the siding process. This was last weekend. Big window in theContinue reading “Siding”
With Gutters, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. The addition with gutters. No siding yet and no windows, but gutters. Every little bit makes it feel more like an actual room. Sheet rock to start tomorrow… it’s really getting cool now.
Rough In… Check, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Looking from the bay into the bathroom. Walk in closet on the left that will have a pocket door. Shower on the right with the window in it. The red and blue “pipe” are the water lines. You can see one of the cadet heaters in the closetContinue reading “Rough In… Check”
Let There Be Light, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. There are like 10 or 11 can lights or some such number in the addition. There will be loads of light. All the can lights in the bathroom itself and in the shower, two lights plus a light tunnel in the closet, and two sconces over theContinue reading “Let There Be Light”
Walk The Plank, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. I’ve heard through the grapevine that people are wanting to see recent photos of the addition. So without further ado… here are some recent photos of the addition. We just got the insulation done and favorably inspected today (no photos of that… sorry). Tomorrow the sheet rock startsContinue reading “Walk The Plank”
Fitting In, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. The last photo I’ll post in this round of here’s our new addition photos is this one, taken by Karen this evening. You can see the nice gable that’s now roofed and our nice make shift ladder into the space. It’s gonna be splendid.
Our Shower, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. This bad boy is like 6 feet something by 6 feet 9 inches and something. It’s huge. So huge we won’t have to have a door. Two separately controlled shower heads with valves right inside the door on each side so you can turn it on without getting inContinue reading “Our Shower”
Break on Through to the Other Side, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. photo by Karen This weekend was all about clean up. Well… food and drink with friends and clean up. Our place has been a mess. The construction of our master bath addition has created some of it, but seriously, we were in trouble wayContinue reading “Break on Through to the Other Side”
Forming Up, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Next step in the remodeling process… which happened yesterday, was the start of the framing. These guys have been working in this heat. Granted they are getting to our place early in the morning… like 6:30, but they are still working in it until 2:00 or so every day.Continue reading “Forming Up”
Pouring, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Then you pour the concrete. Big ol’ cement truck in our driveway with a woman driver.
Forming, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Second step… build the forms.
Pile o’ Dirt, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. We got back from camping just in time to watch our bathroom addition project get underway. First… they dug a big ol’ hole. A big ol’ hole causes a big ol’ pile of dirt.

If you’ll notice in this photo, there are many of the remodelers required elements… radio (used with the ipod it is the remodelers friend), water for when you get parched, pile o’ rags, camera bag, tape measure, light bulbs, manuals for the appliances, notepad, pens, and misc. other itemsContinue reading “Required Elements”
