Stage one is the stage where you remove everything from the bathroom that isn’t nailed down. Actually, everything that is nailed down, but not plumbed in. Stage one point five is where you remove the plumbed in stuff as well. That’s pretty much where we are right now.
On Sunday I removed all the extras from the bathroom – the medicine cabinet, the towel rails, hooks etc. Then this morning the bathroom looked like this as I got ready to remove the faux tile sheets. I’d already begun removing the window frame before I remembered to get the camera.
Nice bathroom. Yep. Especially the space between the vanity and the shower cubicle. You’d never guess, but there used to be a bathtub along the far wall. Great layout for a small bathroom! First thing I did when we bought the place was to remove the tub so we could towel off after a shower.
I removed the door and window trims, the cornices and skirting boards and the faux tile sheets off one wall before the plumber got here this morning.
Together we ripped out everything but the shower.
We left the shower in so we could get clean tonight, but we have a plan. The shower comes out first thing tomorrow. Then work starts on the floor and walls…
And we all know plans go perfectly, don’t we? We’ll have a working bathroom in a couple of days!
