With the new closet in place, we’re ready for the big job. And what a job! Here are the major problems we look to solve with this part of the project:
– Lower the boxed up floor to gain ceiling height
– Swap the position of the vanity and the loo
– Update everything and get rid of moldy rotting walls
So, we start with before. This room needs a root canal.
As luck would have it, we had the hottest weekend of the year to tear everything out.
All secrets were revealed as the walls and floors came out, and there were definitely a few surprises in there. Most significant was the lack of any sort of support beneath the prior location of the toilet, and the vent stack. That essentially shattered as soon as the walls holding them up came out.
After some initial stress struggling with the hired help, the plumbing was run.
Lauren and Tanya tiled the surround. Hooray!
The floor went in, the stuff went in. Hammery hammery, grouty grouty, painty painty, bada bing! A new bathroom!
