We'd been talking about redesigning the bathroom
since we moved into this space in Fall 1991.

My friend Piero and I worked on this project
for six months.

In November 1994
we found the right people to do the job.

We started construction
on January 5, 1995.

I stayed at home almost every day
between January 14 and February 10.

As plumbers, electricians and woodworkers
were building the thing...

I was designing Web stuff
and working on my dissertation proposal.

My stretching exercise was to go check the progress.
Being right there helped me avoid mistakes
and make last minute changes.
