Shortly after buying our home we has realized that the previous owner had put in a one piece tub/shower piece… covering up the window. Now I’m a big window fan and so when my father made a reference to our bathroom being as dark as the black hole of Calcutta I egged it on. Until I can home from a late night to see our shower having been torn out.
Now… I love a good reno project, last year we did the garage, the living room, laundry room and kitchen and most of the backyard. so I’m not afraid of getting dirty and getting it done. I am however not a fan of fixing up part of a room to leave it half old – especially if it’s not going to work. So… We are completely re-doing the bathroom… in a three day weekend – did I mention we have One bathroom?
So day one – tub and floor is out. We went to Home Depot and Kent and 1800$ later we had a new tub (on sale – march is improvement month! Who knew!), new vanity, the one we had in there was all water soaked pressboard – not to mention ugly. New subfloor, grout, sealer, mortar, floor tiles, wall tiles and extras like the faucets, drain, new plumbing, caulking, etc… A bathroom is not cheap.
