Demolition Day

When we bought this house we knew there were a few home-improvement projects that needed attention ASAP. Well, here we are a year and a half later and we are finally getting to the first major one on our list - the master bathroom. And frankly, we needed to do this project long before now. There had been some leaking and major water damage had been done to the floor and wall. We knew we pretty much needed to put in a whole new bathroom. So, yesterday kind of on a whim, Wes decided to pull up the linoleum and survey the damage. One thing lead to another and we just decided that he might as well do as much of the demolition as possible - it would save us from paying someone else to do it!

He took apart the shower and ripped off all of the tile. Come to find out that the previous owner had laid tile on top of tile in the shower. Kinda wierd....



Here he is wondering how in the world he is going to haul all of the debris out.




Then he gets a great idea!


Here is the room after it's cleared out. Gross. The remodel will begin next week. More updates to come.

That is very exciting news! Be sure to get a Toto toilet. You're going to love your new bathroom.

Whoa! I wish I had Wes around to do that to MY bathroom! (and kitchen . . .) I can't wait to see your progress!

Should I say congratulations? Actually, it will all be worth it after the final product gets in. Just an aside, when we did our bathroom remodel I spent a lot of time on the gardenweb's home forums (you can find the link on my page). There is a never ending supply of recommendations, opinions, and discussion about materials. I don't know what I would have done without it as I was pretty clueless going into the whole thing when it came to stuff involved in the nitty-gritty.
