Besides being outdated, our bathroom was in dire need of a redo. Who knows how old it was, probably as old as me.  The shower tile was cracked and tired, the caulking gross, the toilet seal had leaked and the sink old fashion. There was no insulation in the outside wall or floor. We decided to totally gut the room.

Before pictures…

You served us well, rest in peace.

Tearing out….is nasty!

In with the new…

We insulated the walls, floor and duct work under that area, hung new sheetrock and did a total redo of the shower.  We decided to remove the tub and just go with a shower.  New vinyl, vanity, toilet, shower fan & light combo, fixtures, mirror, heater and light complete the makeover.

I was even able to recycle some of the old. The toilet went to a friend, the sink to Goodwill and the tub to Bermuda to scald pigs in a butcher shop.

Now, I have this problem; I keep going to the bathroom…. well, just to look!!!  It feels so clean, bright, pretty and inviting.

Cousin Joe Hertzler, you did an awesome job! Thank you.
