Catching up. Kitchen & Bathroom Renvoations 2016-2017

Could it really be 4 1/2 years since my last post?! 
So much has happened, particularly between 2016-2017. 
We Hosting two family weddings and that had really stepped up our game.
We finished the kitchen in 2016 and finished the 2nd floor (main) bathroom in 2017. 
Ninety nine percent of those big jobs were accomplished by yours truly, Julie and James.
Both the kitchen and the bathroom were herculean tasks for just the two of us
 - from the demo: tearing out the walls, ceilings and floors...including replacing
massive rotted floor joists - to running new electrical,
a dandy new Manabloc manifold PEX plumbing system
and of course all the pretty new tile, large format (shower) and subway tile,
 flooring and plank ceiling to both rooms.
