Supplies and Demolition Day 1

Baby, it is cold outside but things are heating up inside for the guest bathroom renovation!! 

Randy came home with a truck load of supplies yesterday to unload into the garage. 


Saturday morning we started on getting out the stuff that could be salvaged, so the vanity top, the vanities and the toilet were loaded into the back of the truck and Randy hauled them off.

While he was gone I worked on getting the old wallpaper that was hidden behind the vanities off the walls, smoothing out rough spots and taking up the trim.


Randy said he didn’t ever remember that wall paper being in there.  It wasn’t here when we moved in and I don’t remember it from when we were dating but at one time it was up there.


Thankfully it looks like there really is luan under the first layer of vinyl flooring so removal while not simple should be easier.   That will be Sunday’s job, that and getting the rest of the tub out.


Randy said that the bathroom was basically built around the surround that was in there.  He had ‘fun’ using his multi-tool cutting the thing apart.  We are going to have to do a little bit of work to the walls as they aren’t quite up to my engineers standards.

I have to admit I am excited to finally have this project underway, we’ve been talking about bathroom renovations for years!  Those surrounds are small and really not our style at all.

Stay tuned!
