new white tub
Over the weekend, we got out the crowbar and sledge hammer and continued destroying the bathroom. It was awesome. I took a hammer and crowbar to the walls, and Jason sledged out the tub.
We He also removed the toilet and vanity, and I pulled out the linoleum flooring. Luckily, our walls and subfloor are in really great shape and shouldn’t require too much repair. Yay for the previous owners using quality (albeit ugly) materials!
Yesterday, our plumber and contractor came out to install the tub and replace much of the in-the-walls plumbing. It took 4 men to get the 350 lb cast iron tub that we purchased up the stairs, but I think it was worth it – this tub will last forever (or until the next owner takes a sledge hammer to it).
Our plumber had to raise the height of the shower and move some of the sink pipes to accommodate a new sink. Tomorrow, we’ll have the light fixture raised about a foot (I think the previous owners must have been really short), and a few electrical outlets installed (there are none currently in the bathroom). Then, it will be time to rebuild!
