Finally, the Big Bathroom Renovation!

Our plan was to start the Big Bathroom Renovation last summer. It was the first big project we were going to attempt married. But then....

A leak around the chimney forced us to work on the living room instead of the bathroom. Sigh. We try to keep winter projects small, in case of weather issues, so the Big Bathroom Renovation had to be pushed to this summer.

But thankfully, it happened this year, and it. is. awesome. Here's what we started with. Dated, like the rest of the house.

Ugh, I do not miss that shower!

We decided, since we know we'll sell this house sometime in the not-too-distant-future, to replace the old fixtures, rather than try to fix them up. So we very nearly gutted the room.

My wonderful father-in-law came down and stayed for a weekend to help pull out the old tub and get the new one in. We discovered that the old one had literally been built into the room. They had to tear out so much of the walls to get it out! And of course, it was cast iron and weighed an insane amount. And since it's our only tub/shower, it was a weekend with no bathing for any of glad it's over!

Next time, I'll show you more of the process, and hopefully at the end of the week I can reveal the finished project!
