Bathroom Finished

Technically it’s not finished, I still need to put a door on it.  Meh, to be honest I like it with no door.  I might not even put the door on it.   Tomorrow I am going to start moving tools into the garage, so as far as I am concerned, that means “done”.   I thought I would just have pictures, but I do have some commentary, as usually.  But first.  The before pictures.
