It’s been a long time coming

but, our second bathroom is finally being remodeled!

Here is what it looked like when we moved in:

You can see the tile and thin plastic-y yellow bathtub wall here. The floor was stick on tiles and was coming apart everywhere. It was also a tiny room.

This cabinet was taking a big chunk of space out of the room. The door and drawers were in the hallway and while it was a good little storage space, it didn’t work for our needs and we want the space in the bathroom.

A little work was done on it over the past 3 years, mostly when we decided that we would make it bigger and get rid of the closet in our office/school room in 2010. Here are a couple of pictures from that:

This closet wasn’t being used and we wanted that extra space in the bathroom too. I’m telling you, it was tiny!

The real work started on Black Friday though. Kody had asked his dad to come over and help him get started and it was going to be a surprise for me when he showed up, but I found out early. Still a WONDERFUL surprise! So, Friday morning they started tearing everything out (with a lot of help from 3 children. The sink and toilet had to come out first (we’re keeping those), then the ugly old cast iron tub came out. Then they removed all the tile and sheet rock from the walls and cieling. Here are some pictures from all of that:

You can’t do anything without a little help from Kameron. Taking the heavy old bathtub out.

Here is what the bathroom looked like on Saturday morning:

I’ll tell you what we did Saturday and show you some more pictures tomorrow. It’s going to be awhile before this project is done, but I am so excited that it is started and excited to think about what the finished product is going to look like!
