New Tub & Plumbing!
Ding Dong The Old Tub is Gone! Plumber Done, Bathroom Re-Do Continues!
We had exciting news 2 nights ago- the plumber (a wonderful older gentleman) was available & he came today! We pulled the old tub night before last. Dave stayed home today and worked before, and after, the plumber.
Old tub, now all gone, off to the recyclers- $8.00, oh boy!
Nice and dry! Dave added more insulation for quiet between the 2 bathrooms
Ikea sink cabinet, almost done
Dave installed the new floor, patched the sheet rock, leveled the tub, etc. After more work is done we will finish up the sheet rocking edging, texturing, then I'll paint. After that it'll be flooring, then lastly the cabinet/sink. We found out the reason there was so much water damage in the corner was (I guessed it!), it wasn't LEVEL. New tub is level now, so no more leaks!
if you think this is too much work... bids were from $5,000.- $8,000. We up to $2,200. right now, doing most of it ourselves. DIYing saves big $$$!!!
