I like to call this a “studying for contractors exam procrastination technique”. So far it’s working well for me.
In fact, I’ve picked out many of the final materials for the full bath. I may still have half a twitch in my left eye over the tile for the master bath, but that’s to be expected. Also, did you know that load-bearing steel beams only have to be sitting 1-1/2″ on your foundation to support the weight of your entire house? Yeah. Having construction fun-facts running through your brain every few minutes is all kinds of awesome, but not nearly as cool as finding a use for that extra box of engineered hardwood flooring I’ve been carting around for the last five years.
Before anyone yells at me about putting hardwood in a bathroom, we expect that this shower will only see action two or three times a year.
And… you’ve never heard of someone actually being put in a straight jacket because they pulled some (smallish) clumps of hair out after looking at paint swatches for three straight hours, have you?
