Demolition Derby

Hallelujah, the upstairs bath no longer exists. The second floor was once just a plain, old attic. Then it seems the homeowners were inspired to expand and haphazardly divided it into a three bedroom, one bath space. Describing the work as shoddy is being kind. Our minuscule corner shower that could barely fit an average size female was discovered to have a wall held up with just one stud and nail. Also, due to a leak we were not able to use it for over five years. Good times all around.

I have documented the demise of this poor excuse of a bathroom.

The mounted the toilet on a pedestal. Yup. 


View from the hallway

The tight, small shower.



Did I mention there is absolutely no insulation in the walls? Wasn't a concern back in 1920. 


We are expanding the wall out and will have a sliding barn door. In the spot where the toilet was is where the sink shall go and the shower next to that. The Toilet will be next to the big window which will have frosted/stained glass.



And I would like to end this post with a semi-farewell song. Good bye crappily put together bathroom, it's been fun.





Cheers!

  1. You're far, far ahead of us on bathroom renovations; shortly after we began we found cast iron pipes, cracked cast iron pipes. They have to be taken out and replaced before we can proceed any further.

  2. The cast iron pipes are insane in this house. We have copper too, but the prior owners, who owned this place for 40 years, did NOT do any repairs right. It's crazy.
