    Its been a while since I have posted pictures and updates. Project is been moving slowly as I have been preoccupied by school and busy with other matters. With that said, this is what has been going on behind the pictures, I have finalized the plumber, webtruss's are built and will be dropped off shortly. I have ordered my tile for the floors and shower. Picked out my counter tops, as well as the plumbing fixtures. Still need to pick out lighting fixtures, paint colors, and have my cabinet maker out for one final measurement before he starts building the cabinets. Unfortunately I am off to Chicago for the summer and will have a project manager handling everything for me here. I have instructed him to take good pictures, so I know whats going on, and to share with you all. Basically the next few steps are to remove the existing plumbing, install the web-trusses, put new plumbing in, get electric put in, than insulation, drywall, put down the tile, then install cabinets, put the counter tops on. Not sure on the exact competition date, looking for no later than July 1st, and I should be able to pop in for a second to get some pictures myself and inspect the progress.

    Update:
    The framing is done, plumbing is done and has the rough in inspection tomorrow, electrical is being worked on (a lot is happening with the electrical, the meter is switching to the other side of the house, the panel was moved to a different location, and the wiring for the kitchen is complex)

    Will post pictures later today, need to compress them down.

    Nice with cast iron drops. Do you do fiberglass shower pans there?

    The upstairs bathroom is a porcelain tub and the downstairs is a custom tile shower which will have a liner under the tile.

    Yes. I was talking about the liner. Fiberglass has become a very popular choice where I am for the pan. (the hidden part under the tile since tile isn't waterproof.)

    I couldn't say, I'll have to ask the contractor tomorrow. The shower is irregular size, can you get a pan for irregular sizes or do they only come in specific sizes? Would you recommend using one if possible?
