Well, we have an elliptical now. I took my time (3 hours), greased everything that needed grease, and had assembled and running by the time my wife finished work. Here's hoping my fat a$$ doesn't break it.

Congratulations - I think? Are you going to do Zwift on it? You need at least a 90" curved screen for "maximum immersion." ;-)

My wife wants one too but I'm resisting because there is just no room right now. I'd rather have a resistance trainer that I can hook my bike up to. I don't care for ellipticals personally. YMMV.

I got the toilet hooked up and started putting the door trim back up. The color palette is starting to grow on me.



Here's a better overall look of the grout color. Notice that she tied into the color of the adjoining master bedroom:

Looks good. I like the dresser style vanity (has feet). We did those on the last house.

Yeah, it's surprisingly sturdy - and heavy! She ordered it off Wayfair. the one I put in the other bathroom is not nearly as nice.

The challenge is going to be hooking up the plumbing. The water lines come up through the floor so I have to cut some holes and maybe the lines themselves so that I don't kill myself lifting it.



The countertop she ordered is pure white stone - I think it's quartz. It's nicer than what we have in the kitchen. I have to install the recessed sinks myself.

Looks good. Is that a heat bulb over the shower?

Thanks. Yes, it's a heat bulb. We rarely use it. My wife prefers to have a portable space heater that up until now had to be placed on the countertop.

I cleaned out the garage and stuffed the dumpster bag full. I should've rented a full size dumpster.

I have never seen one of those heat bulbs that high up in a bathroom and even more so on a vaulted ceiling over a wet location. Heat rises.
