The first-floor bathroom, before demolition
There's the heavy iron tub.
Where a sink is supposed to be.
Now, rip it down to the studs!
First, you need to have a plan.
Tore down the wall to move the door.
Lath and old plaster are crap, I tell you.
Yanked out the 526 lbs tub.
It made it out to the kitchen
and was broken up by sledge hammer.
Installed a smaller window.
Built a second wall with insulation.
I don't like cold showers.
I passed my homeowners electrical exam.
Ran some new elect wires for lights and outlets.
But the inspector told me I had to re-do some stuff.
Putting down tile takes longer than it looks.
Forget about buying spacers, I just eyeballed them.
I installed a shower and set my toilet.
I made the mistake of starting the tile
at opposite ends of the room to meet in the middle.
The expensive plumber I hired set the sink.
I started the all-metal ceiling.
Post 2008 Flood
Rachel put down some sticky-tile squares.
I put up some shelves for lots of storage.
After 6 years I finally get a medicine cabinet.
Put up prettier shelves and fashionable baskets.
