bathroom remodel: day 20

Yesterday, Brian installed our new exhaust fan/light combination unit in the bathroom, so check that one off the list! He did some other wiring as well. His dad also stopped by and installed a GFCI breaker in our circuit box. This is required by code since we put the fan/light in the ceiling over the shower. And, it’s not a bad idea either way to have all of the electrical work in the bathroom protected by a GFCI.

I mostly played “gopher” yesterday and got stuff for Brian as he was working. It was a long day for him, but at least a few things got wrapped up. There is still a bit of electrical work to do, though. Namely, our new wall sconces need to be installed and unfortunately for Brian, they are not going in the same location as our current lights. And we also need to put in an additional wall outlet. This will probably be easier to do, but both projects will involve cutting holes in the wall and running wires through them. Ugh. Not sure when all of this is going to get done. It was nice having last week off of the project, but I think we’re going to need to work in there a bit this coming week.
