We continue with our downsizing plan by preparing to sell our large house in middle Tennessee. In 2012, we gutted and remodeled our master bathroom. Although the bathroom finishes and fixtures were not over the top, it was a significant investment.

At least we are getting to enjoy the new and improved master bath for a time before we sell. We are about to begin phase II of the remodel.
