It's a rainy cold day here in Iowa. They are talking about snow tomorrow...WHAT? I thought we were done with all that white stuff. Hopefully it won't stick around very long if it does.
I have a few pics to share of our bathroom in the beginning stages of demo. It's not a pretty sight.
See that monster size hole in the wall? That was the first unexpected surprise and they kept coming. My darling pulled up the flooring to discover that the sub floor was wet in the area surrounding the toilet. It would have to be replaced.
I did my best to get photos of him as he prepared to tear this out while staying out of the way too! It's an extremely small space and this floor issue took up much of the time he had expected to spend elsewhere. He is a good man and I am so thankful he was willing to roll up his sleeves and do this himself instead of hiring it out.
This is the tile that was under the carpet. Hmmm...not sure why they covered it up. It definitely had the 50s look just like the tile.
In the upper left corner you can see where the subfloor is coming out.
The best way for this gal to help was giving lots of encouragement, iced tea breaks and helping with the removal of anything that had to go to the garage or dumpster.
I am also in charge of cleaning up some of the old hardware that we are planning to reuse. I am pretty handy with steel wool and paint :)
With some of the obstacles we have encountered this job that had a
two week time table is now looking to run us another week or two more. My darling is back at work so our weekends will be spent with this bathroom remodel until it is finished. Thank goodness we have another full bath. I will be back to share more of our progress soon.
Happy Wednesday :)
