bathroom remodel: day 18

As it usually goes, we didn't get to work as much as we would've liked today, but we still managed to wrap some things up. Jacob's school had an event this morning/afternoon. When we returned from it, we started to work in the bathroom. Brian picked up a Fluidmaster wax-free bowl gasket for the toilet at Lowe's this morning. We installed it and the toilet in short order. It seems to be working. Unlike last time, there's no water running into the woodshop when we flush the toilet. However, Brian has banned us all from using the toilet until Monday night because that is the magical night when he'll be convinced the toilet is actually working. In the meantime, we're just going to flush it at random times and check for running water in the room below. I believe this is known as the Guzo Methodology of Toilet Testing. Or something like that.

After that, he installed the last of the drywall around the tub. Jacob and I then had to go to an anniversary party for one of my relatives. It didn't take a lot of arm-twisting to get Brian to stay home and work on the vanity. As I understand, all of the pieces for the base are cut to fit and ready to assemble.
