Bathroom - Fixed
The tub looks great. I am so glad we bought it. Last night (e:joe) and I took a bath in and it was plenty of space for both of us 6+ footers. It was hard to get out of the hot water but the heated floor helps.
I am also really happy with the vanity despite it being the brown one instead of the black one I thought I ordered. The brown is dark enough though and matches the rubbed bronze hardware.
They fixed all the issues I had with the shower heads. There are so many options between the hand held, the rain showers, the standard showers and the jets. Its pretty amazing now like the ones we saw in the catalogs when we first decided to build a walk in multi-person shower.
Another gratuitous (e:lilho) homage

Hi Paul, Keith tells me everything is done and looking great! If you concur, would like to collect balance owed of $6,750.00. Thanks for your business!
I would have appreciated a final walk-through. I have never had any other work done where the contractor did not have a final walk-through. Maybe they would have caught some of these glaringly obvious issues. Or maybe thats why they didn't do one because the issues existed as demonstrated by the photos below.
For example, the supposed to be rain shower that is now just a leaky cap in my ceiling and the other showerheads are leaking from the bolt where they are connected to the arm on the shower wall. Did no one test them?
These are such obvious oversights that it terrifies me to think whatever less obvious things were overlooked.
1. The door trim is over the position of the light.
2. The window does not fit in the wall and sits above it almost an inch.
3. A piece of floor board in the adjoining bedroom is missing. It was there before they started. Do your guys know where the floor board is?
4. They scratched the crap out of my branch new $1600 dresser. Its frustrating because this happened when they put debris up there and then must have tried to clean it up yesterday by wiping rock debris on the wood. i
I am checking on the repair cost of these today or tomorrow.
I will gladly pay you once you rectify these issues or if you give me a written signed letter stating these issues will be rectified.

Shower Pan and Threshold Continued
The drop is even more obvious now with the threshold in place.
You can see how far the left side (right side of picture as its taken from inside the shower)
Here is the right side which is good an normal height like the other two corners.
Here is the fucked up one. Look at the difference in height.
Just look how much shit they had to shove in there to try and cover up the drop that will definitely cause water to pool there.
They tried to use a 1/2 caulk to make this work. Well caulk and some wood and a piece of cement board. It looks insane. Instead of having concrete on stone flush like the other side there is all this other material that will surely degrade at different rates and separate causing space for mold to get trapped etc.
The threshold even overhangs by 1/2 inch on both sides which is a major tripping hazard. This is especially frustrating because the guy specifically told me to buy 6inch wide threshold which was extra cost and now not only looks like shit but is a major tripping hazzard. I would have just bought 5inch if he had told me to.
Even the ceiling fan is crooked. Its like these people have never seen a right angle before.

Nightmare Tile Scenario
As if the uneven, tile with random thickness grout and barrier corner parts wasn't bad enought, the shower pan even went downhill away from the drain which is bound to be a water nightmare in the future. It is so visually obviously that it makes me feel like I am in a crooked fun house looking at it.
Lets start out with the good side. Notice the evenness of the tile height. On this side the bottom tiles are all the same height.
Then on the other side it goes downhill on one side, like the pan concrete goes downhill, away from the drain in the front left corner. You can tell when you look at how much larger the bottom rows of white tiles go down on the left side of the picture. That side is almost a half inch lower. That is going to be a nightmare if its not fixed as the water will pool in that corner.
Before they began work I spent weeks tearing out an uneven 6" tile floor so that the new floor could be even. There was nothing left but the joists of the house. They put in a new seamingly even as plywood is floor as underlayment. The tile floor is really even around the toilet. Like this.
But then everywhere else it is this. We are talking like $3k worth of marble thats part of a $25k bathroom remodel that is potentially fucked up. I was so hoping this would be over but now I feel we are just beginning.
My other bathrooms 100 year old stone tile floor that is perfectly flat. I know from tearing up the other one that they used thick mud.

24 Linwood Bathroom Remodel Continued
Our tub has oil rubbed bronze feet but is otherwise the same.
I also got this style tub faucet with handle.
We got both kinds of showers so that we have both the regular shower head, the body jets, the rain can shower and the handle shower which makes it easy to clean the tub according to everyone I talked with about it.
The one thing is I can't stand the plasticy shower header for the regular shower while everything else is metal so I also got matching replacement oil rubbed bronze shower headers.
Looking back on it, I almost wish I went with an asian themed bathroom instead of a marble and porcelain victorian style one. Then I could have gotten this Japanese soaking tub which is currently on sale
This is the vanity we got but in brown instead of black.

New Bathroom Granite and Marble Stone
At first I thought we were going to have to wait till October because one of the stones were on backorder.
In the end we ended purchasing some awesome white granite and patterned marble floor.
It was more expensive than (e:terry) had originally wanted to spend but we signed up for a card and they threw in an extra discount giving us 25% off the total.
They also had a bottle of Tanya's favorite, discontinued soap in one of the showers. I asked if they could throw that in too and they did.
Right now I am holding an $52 marble soap dish. It seems so crazy that such and insignificant part of my existence can be so expensive.
