Bath Beginnings

She Says:

Our next major project: the bath!

Here's what we're starting with:

He Says:

What you can't see in this photo is a toilet that rocked back and forth 4-5 inches.

She Says:

That toilet is a rollicking good time!

Linoleum flooring, teal tile accents, and the world's smallest tub.

Oh, and a bare bulb light fixture- awesome!

And a very sad little vanity.

He Says:

What you can't see in this photo is the incredible low quality of this particle board vanity, and the fact that it is bulging from having absorbed so much water over the years.  It has to go!  Also, you can't see the nonfunctional plumbing lurking beneath that will have to be replaced.

She Says:

As you can see, it's very small- only about 50 square feet.

So, we're stripping this baby down to the studs and starting over.  Plans include:

  • Tile floor
  • Walk in shower
  • Vanity with lots of storage
  • A window

He Says:

Even if this bathroom didn't look and smell terrible, everything needs to be replaced because of water damage anyway.  The vent is also nonfunctional and has to be replaced and routed outside, instead of into the attic...

She Says:

Looks like we've got our work cut out for us... let's get to work!

  1. ah bathrooms! This one will be fun to watch - just make sure that you take turns working in there - we found out the hard way that in a small space only one human being is allowed at a time - esp. if one of them has a sawzall...
