Bye Bye Bathroom

Yesterday Nabil and I decided to spend some quality time together, ripping things apart. I was working hard to get premium carpet gripper up off the floors around the master bedroom and taping down thick brown paper to protect our original pine floors, while Nabil was busy gutting the bathroom.

Below are some pictures of the old master bathroom. The floor is dipping big time in corner to the left of the sink. We are planning on tearing out a wall on the other side of the shower, to extend the bathroom a little more into what is now a small closet. So, the bathroom won't get any wider, but it will extend another 5 feet, roughly, making room for an additional sink and a nice walk in shower.

It may be hard to see, but that is a strip of crazy floral wallpaper that was underneath layers of drywall and newer ugly wallpaper. And check out the wall underneath the drywall, they don't make 'em like that anymore. There will be more pictures of the gutted bathroom to come, as we continue ripping it apart.

Nabil and I were laughing yesterday, because people always ask how the house is coming along, and we always say that it's coming along, and it is. But it's funny because truth is that every time we leave, it's a little bit worse than it was before. But, I guess it has to keep getting worse before it can better.
