As you can imagine, in my profession I am riddled with questions about bathroom remodeling. Thus, I feel that a journey through the innards of our humble "project" should sufficiently address any questions you might have about our bathroom.

This first picture shows you the state of the bathroom when we bought the house...can you imagine people lived this way? Maybe I made some slight modifications, including ripping out the walls.  Posted by Picasa

Hindsight is 20/20. This is me soldering the fatal copper joint that will later reenter our lives. Durk looks on. Posted by Picasa

All done, forever. Posted by Picasa

The "Mitten".

The plaster.

The new look, still needs grout. And Durk looks on. Posted by Picasa

We here at Smiling Hill are pleased to announce our first blogsite. We hope that family and friends will enjoy our array of family "pics" and selected adventures. In the spirit of Smiling Hill, we hope that every blog is full of ridiculous sunshine.

For those interested in SH lore, the title "Smiling Hill" was the name of a family farm nestled in the rolling hills of yesteryear (sigh). Although closed years ago, may the spirit of SH open your hearts and capture your imaginations, literally.

We're so happy you've visited our blog!
