Condo Renovations: Part 2

Thought it was time for a condo renovation update! We have made some progress in the past couple of weeks, not as much as we would have liked to,  but right now with our work schedule, we are limited to just the weekends’ free time to be able to work on it. (and that is, if we even have a free weekend!)  but regardless, we have made progress. 🙂 All recent works have been done to the master bedroom. Shawn installed a new outlet, hardwired some electricity so that the fan can be turned on by a switch rather than plugging it into the wall – that project was a bit of a challenge since the bedroom has vaulted ceilings. He had to drop a wire down the wall and out the wall switch; it was harder than we thought because we discovered that behind the wall was a sheet of concrete that blocked the path where we wanted to run the wire.  My smart cookie hubby figured out a way to get past it, which involved cutting a hole in the bathroom wall! (which is next to the bedroom) By doing this, he was able to access the concrete wall and cut a little hole for the wire to go through. The electricity is now completed and all we have to do now is buy a fan.  The other project was the closet, there was some water damage on the sheet-rock in there, so we tore it all down and replaced it with cedar.  Plus installed recessed lights, as well as rewired some of the electricity in there, and added an outlet. That’s is almost complete!  This weekend the plan is to finish the closet, buy a fan, begin tiling the closet, and possibly paint the walls.
