This "Old Bathroom Part 2"

I thought if I was going through all of this!!!  Why not share it with my friends!!!!

This bathroom remodel is becoming more of a pain in the you know what!!!!

We did find the leak, and of course it was under our bathtub!!! Great!!!!!  We had to move our cast iron tub somewhere, but we couldn't get it downstairs so guess where that heavy thing is??????  It's in front of my bed!!!!  We had to move the toilet as well, and yep you guessed it is beside my side of the bed.......

Told you Justine "The Froggy Bloggy"

While we were tearing stuff down we tore down a wall to make our bathroom bigger!!!!  The lighting is not great, but those beams will be gone!!!!

This is where the tub and toilet was, and that is my outside wall!!! Yes, the previous owners blew the insulation in the walls!!! Pain in the butt to take out...  Some of the insulation went down my shirt!!! itchy, itchy, and itchy!!! 

I'm sooo glad I could share this pain I'm going through with all of my friends!!!

Note: My contractor (Steve, hubby) is getting sick!!!  

Please make sure you add my new address Life As Lori to your blog roll!! Until next time!!!!

WOW! This is a major task for you hubby! Here is to hoping that he gets well soon and can tackle this bathroom for you. At least you know you can trust this contractor to do the work!

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

Isn't that just like a contractor?? Just kidding, seriously I hope he feels better soon. This kind of job is no fun to begin with, I can't imagine trying to tackle it when you feel under the weather. Hope you have the bathroom you've always wanted - and SOON! Kathy

Holy crap, what a mess! It'll all be worth it in the end though, right? Looks like your tub needs a new coating on it. How long do you think this will take? And I hope you guys are wearing masks while taking out that insulation!

I would love to remodel my bathroom but just don't have the time or finances. Oh well. Maybe one day. Good luck! I am sure it will look great.

Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest!
