The new bathroom

It’d been 30 years without a touch. Let me just say it needed to be updated pretty darned bad. You can use some of these original pictures as a guide to help you determine whether or not the overhaul was warranted:

So, Greg decided to plan everything out, and Jill and I joined him for a fun-filled 5 days of overhaul.  Let me say it wasn’t the funnest 5 days I’ve ever had, but in the end the result was worth the work.  So here we go, the demo:

With the demo completed, it was now time to start putting everything back together.  Considering demo only took 4 hours, we were on a good schedule.  Unfortunately, the vast majority of the work encompassed putting things back together….  🙂

First, the plumbing, electrical, framing, drywall and painting.

Next comes the tile:

And then the finishing touches with the floor tile, toilet and sink base cabinets.

And the final product, apples and oranges compared to the original:
