HOME IMPROVEMENT! Yep, that's right. We have long been wanting to update our place and now thanks to wedding money and our tax refund we've begun. First up--the upstairs bathroom.
With both of our busy schedules, it's taken us a couple of weeks to get everything ready and demo-ed. Demolition has got to be the best part--cleaning up, not so much. I had so much fun wacking out that backerboard, it was theraputic that's for sure. And who knew gardening gloves could serve such a dual purpose? What did we find? UGH--terrible things. Seems that the builders did not do a "great job", no moisture barrier and the insulation (one of the walls is an outside wall) had molded--crap! That added a bit of expense to the plan, but hey, I want it done right. So needless to say, down came that insulation.
We also decided that we wanted to change out the fixture and that is going to take a bit of plumbing work... I picked out the new handle and it's going to look great.
