Hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend.
Mine was a bit dusty and..... completely disgusting.
I mentioned in my last post something about a bathroom remodel.
Well.....it's happening ;)
Let me show you some before photos.
Just a standard hall bath.
When we bought this house the bathroom had
seen better days.... and I just couldn't clean it.
So we purchased a new potty and a cheap
(but cute) vanity and mirror set from Home Depot.
Telling our selves in a year or two tops we would
gut out the bathroom and completely redo it.
Well NINE years latter we are finally getting
around to it. Ha! ;) Actually we had no choice
anymore. The bathroom floor was rotten when we
bought the house, and time along with two little
tub splashers didn't help the floor any.
A few things about the bath... the toilet behind
the door, facing the sink.? Don't get the placement.
Although, convent if you had the flue. ;)
The rotting tub....... yuck!
The amount of bleach I used didn't matter anymore,
the whole place was just rotting.
Rotting from the inside out. Once we removed
the tub surround we could see why. Bad construction!
The wrong materials and cheap materials.
Green rock and particle board. Instead of
cement board and plywood. The above photo
is of the wall behind the tub surround. YUCK!
After stripping the sheetrock off the walls it was
time to remove the tub.
Can you guess what we found!?!
Yes!, PIRATE GOLD, no... no, RAT POOP!
HA HA HA....... ;)
We did look!
Can you play the eye spy game with me?
I spy with my little eye, a walnut shell,
a peanut shell, cherry pits, apple core, seeds
that started the germination process, and RAT POOP!
This is the 2x4 that our uninvited guest was
chewing on. My Hubby also found it's nest,
a pile of plastic grocery bags. YUCK!
We never new it was there, didn't hear a thing.
This is the floor under the potty.
Oh man.... yuck again. Using the potty at our house was like
playing a game of Russian Roulette. You never knew if you were
going to be the one to fall threw the floor. ;)
Well now we are knee deep in it.
Literally. No going back now. The dust is the worst part.
I'll be spending the better part of the day just vacuuming.
The worst is over everything has been removed and new
floor joists have been installed.
After all that yuckiness.... and palate cleanser for the the eyes.
I just couldn't end this post with out a little pretty.
