That looks really good, Josh! :

But you're going to be neater in painting your crown molding blue. That's needs a little touch up, eh?

Looks like just a handful of details left to address, Josh, pretty rewarding when it all finally comes together, 'eh? I'm a big fan of too much lighting, and lighting options. Can always dim them if necessary.

What a massive difference between then and now. Well done.
If I recall correctly my memory is excellent, but my ability to access it is intermittent.

Really nice color combination. I like the lighter grout color with the darker tile.

Question: I got a plumber to raise my shower head about 6 inches from original when I was doing my remodeling. The water pressure works perfect and everything.

The other day on our buildinglink email someone posted that they were having water issues. This unit is 3 units down the hall from mine. We are both on the 4th floor. I would say from my unit to hers is about 30 yards.

Specifically the email said,

Hi neighbors - Is anyone else having issues with their water? My sinks and toilets are spurting water and making odd sounds. Anyone?

I was wondering, would raising a shower head a few inches cause this?

I’m getting nervous. Hopefully it has nothing to do with this.

I talked to my plumber and other remodeler friend and they said each unit is separate and ties into the main line. It's a mainline issue and has nothing to do with me raising the shower pipe 6 inches. Just want to make sure I'm not missing anything.

Although plumbers are more capable of collateral damage than most other building trades when it comes to remodeling work, Josh, I can't imagine even a plumber being able to cause any effect on adjacent, especially twice removed adjacent, dwelling units by extending a shower head riser half a foot.

Could he manage to cause your ceiling to crack or your dog to die? Yeah, probably, but what he did was likely too simple for even that sort of damage.

I would recommend your remaining silent on the issue of your neighbor's problem.

My opinion; worth price charged.

Only thing I could think of is a plumbing venting issue. Like if you made a wet vent where there was none before???
