More Work on the Bathroom

We kept working all weekend, and here are some of the pictures to show what was involved. First, the cabinet, sink and toilet were removed. Then the tile on the walls came down.

More tile in the shower.

The wall boards were removed, exposing plumbing and wiring.

Then the floor tiles had to come up. I got assigned most of this job. I don't know why I can't get the picture to rotate and stay that way!

The tub was removed, not very heavy considering it was iron with enamel.

A look at the tub plumbing.

Eddie had removed the flooring that the tile was mortared to, and replaced it with new subfloor.

There was a wall here between the tub and closet. We took it and the frame for the doorway out, so we'd be able to bring in a new-construction, one-piece fiberglass tub/shower.

And there it is, temporarily in place to check measurements for the wall to be replaced.

That looks like a lot of work! Are you replacing everything completely? Btw that looks like a pretty big bathroom there. Good luck on this project!

Yes, everything that can reasonably be removed. :) Thanks for stopping by! I should update with some more pictures soon.
