One Step Forward, Two Steps Back

So progress on the bathroom has been worse than slow.  We got the walls painted and tried to install the light fixture to find this:

Yes that is my electrical wires in my house going through a beam in my bathroom.

Which lead to this:

Giant hole to install an outlet box.

And Jeff helped me install the light (because I am just short enough that it wasn’t going smoothly.

Then we were installing the vanity and the measurements were a 1/2″ off (the vanity was mislabled).  So I had to remove the base board to get the vanity in only to find this:

And the floor being removed (the one thing I didn’t want to do). I did find out the floor was original to the house and not the replacement floor which I thought. So the floor was 20 years old.

A photo the princess took of me scrapping the floor.
