I am keeping my fingers crossed that we can start at the end of the month, before Spring break, so we can miss a good chunk of the demolition work. Realistically, it's probably looking more like April. C'est la vie!
The overall planning process hasn't been too painful. Jason and I are pretty decisive, and we've been able to piggyback off a lot of the hard work that Susie and Sean did planning for their kitchen and bathroom renovation (thanks, guys!). Things just take longer -- and cost more -- than you want them to.
For those who are interested ...

|Bathroom vanity design. Note: This does not reflect our tile or fixture choices. We'll have dark gray tile on the floor, white tile on the walls, and an array of chrome Kohler fixtures.|
|Linen cabinet. Oh blessed storage!|

|MY side of the closet ... even though I'm constantly paring down my wardrobe to the essentials, I'm dying about having All. This. Space!|
It's going to be crazy at our house until May with all of our master bedroom furniture crammed into the guest room and my office, cabinets and supplies stacked in boxes downstairs, and contractors coming in and out of our house for 8 weeks. But hopefully it will all be worth it!
