We are in the midst of a major bathroom overhaul right now! Fortunately for us, my parents own the house next door to us as rental property. It was between tenants when we first started the bathroom demolition a week ago, so we were able to use that bathroom. Let me tell you, it's pretty fun walking next door at 6:00 in the morning, underwear in hand, to get ready for work! But, we don't have to do that anymore because we now have a functioning toilet and shower!!! Would you like to see what we have been calling a bathroom for the last 7 years? Prepare yourselves......it's not pretty!
My husband took pictures after he started the demo, but you still get the idea. Knowing we were going to eventually redo the bathroom after we bought our house, we did very little to the bathroom but install the pedestal sink. Who knew it would take us 7 years!?!
As you can see from the ugly peeling wallpaper, exposed flooring and drywall, rusty lighting, and curling linoleum, we had our work cut out for us. So we thought it would be best to start from scratch. Everything got torn out down to the studs and sub floor.
We discovered the entire shower wall had to be rebuilt. It was so rotted from water damage.
That's all for now. Join me next week for Part 2 of our Bathroom Redo!
