Daox, if that post is to long, I can break it into two if necessary.

Still to do:
  • Repaint some areas (light fixture, wall corners, after removing the shower rod node, cabinet wood strip, etc.)
  • Install new faucet
  • Install new medicine cabinet
  • Install crown moulding
  • Clean bottom of tub where it meets the floor
  • Install new shower arm face plate (old one was rusty)
  • Install new light switches
  • Blanket wrap the water heater
  • Insulate pipes (as much as I can, where it's accessible)

There's probably more!

I also have some other non-bathroom related tasks to do:
  • Insulate exterior wall light switches
  • Swap out pot lights with LEDs
  • Fix back porch awning
  • Fix bedroom A/C leakage
Again, probably more!

The A/C issue in my bedroom:

Not exactly efficient when the cooled air permeates right through the device that is cooling the air.


This is in the morning, when the room is still dark, but you can see the morning light peaking through.


I was just going to use some silicone to seal it, but what do you guys think is the best option (short of removing the unit)?
