Master bathroom shower update

So here is what has been happening with our shower.  We have been waiting a month now to get the enclosure done.  When we chose the company to do this they told us that it would be 7-10 days to get the glass.  Well after about one week they called and said they needed to measure again as they got one measurement wrong.  So they came out and measured again.  Another week went by with no word so my hubby called to find out what was going on and they said they would find out and call back.  That never happened.  So we waited a few days and he called them back.  We got the same answer with a personal guarantee that she would call back that day.  Still nothing.  So yesterday I called since it had been another week with no one calling us back and was told it was in and she would put us on the schedule.  Well I thought to myself yeah she will probably say that it will be about three weeks ore so since they are booked up.  But to my surprise she said they could do it this Friday. Well needless to say I will not hold my breath since they have cancelled on us before when they were coming out to give us an estimate.  So I am praying that this will all work out and we will finally be done with this shower on Friday.  So here is what the shower looks like right now.  When the glass gets installed I will post the pictures.

Once this is done all we have left to do is build and install the shelves above the cabinet, buy and hang the valances and decorate.  I am not sure when the shelves will be done since my hubby is doing that and he tends to put things off for awhile.  I would still like to have the whole bathroom done by Thanksgiving.

On a different note,  yesterday I noticed that the hot water in the shower wasn't that hot.  We have two hot water heaters so my hubby checked them out and one of them had the pilot light out.  He tried several times but it would not light so now we have to get a new water heater.  It seems like something always goes wrong around here.


  1. I hate having to wait to get things completed. I understand your frustration. It will look so beautiful when the enclosure is done. I love the rich warm colors of the tile. Can't wait to see it completed. It never to seems to fail that life has a way of throwing a monkey wrench at us all the time. Hope everything goes as planned. Have a wonderful weekend!

    1. We have been without a shower since July. We are using the one the basement for now. I still haven't heard when they will be coming today. I just hope it gets done today. At least my hubby got the hot water heater installed last night without any problems.
