I finalized our plumbing fixtures today, and am quite excited. Through work at Lincoln Construction, we’ve been quite pleased with the Contrac Crista toilet, we’ve used this toilet in all our bath Reno’s and new builds the last several years with no issues. Fantastic comfort height elongated seat.. simple, as elegant as a toilet can be, but most importantly comfortable and flushes really well, especially for a 4.8 L toilet.
And I’m in love with our square lav sinks and faucets. They’re not half as high as vessel sinks, but a little bit higher profile than typical drop in sinks.. which will hopefully help with splashy messes. Faucets are the Delta Tesla line. Bill couldn’t resist the name!
But wait! Here is la Piece de Resistance!! Our Franke Manorhouse fireclay double farmhouse sink. I visited it again today in the store.. and it reinforced the decision, paired with the Delta Esque gooseneck faucet with touch technology. It’s just so very lovely…
My mom likes to tell me “You need all the toys”… I guess she’s right! I’m a bit of a germaphobe and always have messy dirty hands when I’m cooking/baking/creating so I am pretty stoked about these fixtures.
I’ll save the shower for when it’s installed and all the pieces are together.. but that’s another exciting piece of the puzzle that will make our new bathroom perfect. I showed the pieces to my BIL tonite.. and he exclaimed “you’re never going to want to leave your bathroom!” Haha.. he might be right!
When I came home I was pleased to see Cotton came a day earlier than expected, and the forms are up.
And this is inside our basement wall where the new opening is to the addition.
Just a couple last pics.. in case you’re feeling in the least sorry for us during our time out of our house while under construction.. here’s the view from our current “home away from home”
