The project is just about done. These pictures were taken last weekend when only the final plumbing, the last coat of paint in the bedroom and just a bit of touch up remained. I wanted to get photographs of the space while it was still empty before I put a few items in the room which were likely to scratch the stairway (another coat of paint was about to be applied before the painters leave for good).
