Update on the bathroom

Okay, redoing this ugly bathroom is taking much longer than expected! Thank goodness I have the help from my best friend, since my husband is swamped at work!

Anyway, I learned why the contractor (we were originally considered for this job) didn't want to pull up the floor. I was amazed that pulling up the vinyl flooring and the paneling was actually quite quick and easy. Repairing the sub-floor, took a little time and creativity. I guess the contractor and all the home depot and Lowes staff were right, "You never know what to expect until you clean out (or demolish) your bathroom".

So, know we are onto putting up drywall on uneven, non-plumb walls.
...So far...so good.

Yeah!!! Looks good. When we ripped apart our bathroom it was completely disgusting. It was so moldy everywhere under everything surprised there weren't any mushrooms growing in our walls & floors. I am almost totally done with the laundry room but my mom is coming by this weekend to help me with the floor. They are only peal and stick tiles BUT I have to go around and under the furnace and water heater. Can you believe that we lived without a toilet for a week when we remodeled our bathroom? Keep up the good work!

Yeah, the green drywall and newsprint-covered instillation make a beautiful decor!

Val, we thought we would have more mold then we did (the main reason we started this who venture). The bathroom shower leaked into our kitchen downstairs, through the plastic tile.
I don't know how you did it without a toilet for a week!
