Bathroom Rebuild

So you saw the first look at our bathroom remodeling project when we posted some pictures of the demolition on Monday. Now the walls are up, the window has been filled in, the tub is in place and the tile is on the floor. Here is the view from the stairwell. It’s looking down to the basement, but more importantly it is looking at what used to be a silicone sealed window to our bathroom!

I’ll be honest, we had problems with mildew and moisture in the bathroom. I have a feeling that the vent fan, the removal of the window and the installation of the g-board instead of tiled walls and ceilings will fix that problem. Not to mention this whole project is solving our collapsing tile problem.

Our remodel man, Mike was also able to remove the lowered ceiling over the shower. I’m not really sure what the purpose of that was, but maybe it had something to do with the lovely shower doors we had when we moved in.

We’ve also upgraded from 8,000 little 1″ x 1″ pink tiles to maybe 50 12 x 12 tiles. I can’t wait to put my feet on something solid every time I get out of the shower instead of something that feels like a jigsaw puzzle.

Huge thanks to Mike from Hammertime Home Remodeling. If you’re in NJ and you need a new bathroom, he’s your guy. This afternoon, the sink and toilet went in. This weekend we will start painting! Keep an eye out for some updates on our progress within the next 48 hours.
