We have been so busy that there just wasn't time or energy to attack that room in the evenings.
So, today we are back at it.
HOLY COW PIES! ....what a job.
We finally got the toilet, sink, and flooring up, down to the sub-floor.We are going to have to replace all the cross boards, but we are hoping that the joist are pest free and sturdy. Our next step is to call an exterminator to see just how bad the damage is. We are pretty sure we are going to have to tent the house. We might just need a tent and camp in the back yard during the tenting....not really but it might be fun for a few days. I hear stay-cations are what people are doing lately.
Here is what is going on with the demo:
Jerry perfecting his plumbers crack being a plumber.
He is removing the sink and toilet.
Next we need to finish removing the tiles and the plywood flooring.
I can't tell you how thankful I am to our son, son in law, and grandson for coming over to take the tile from the walls today! My body was not willing to do a repeat of yesterday. They finished taking all the tile and cement backer board off the walls.
Matt hard at work.
Ryan hard at work.
more of the same, maybe we will be able to fit all this in the barrels next week.
In June of this year we will have lived in our home for 25 years. One of the many things we did when we first moved in was to completely gut and remodel the 3/4 bathroom. This bath is looking a little out dated. I have dreamed of how I would like it to look, but just didn't want to part with the money it would cost to attain that dream....but the time is now.
Maybe I should say we are forced to renovate. I have been noticing that the tile grout in our small bath is falling out. There was another clue, the tile on the shower pan curb was ready to fall off. So last night we decided to look a little deeper.
Boy oh boy are we in for some demo work!
Darn those subterranean termites!
They have been FEASTING!
On the up side, this is a very small 3/4 bath that I am excited to give a fresh look.
