Oh yeah, destroying my house.
When last we left I had intentionally knocked a section of a wall out for the purpose of removing a shower enclosure without destroying it. It also helped that much of the wall was moldy and rotten anyway. I'm trying to look at the bright side here. Some see mold and rot. I see the opportunity to save a shower enclosure.
I did manage to disconnect everything and pull out the shower. What did I find?
|Yeah, look at that wallpaper. Remember, this thing was built in 1994|
|This is the wallpaper that all the hip grannies wanted way back in '94.|
|There may have been some minor water leaks.|
|They may have been raw sewage.|
Oh well. Everything must go. We kind of knew that going in. Time to get to it.
|Pulling out big chunks is fun.|
|Our ever growing trash pile. What does that sticker say?|
|Well, I think we have performed our sub-surface inspection now.|
|Yeah, this isn't even the highest staple density area.|
|Class D-3? I mean I didn't expect 1-A or anything, but at least C-2 or something.|
OK, so I don't really know what D-3 means.
I do know what particle board is and I know it doesn't do well with water.
This is what we are left with.
|The decor is much improved.|
|Of course, I still have to rip out the ceiling.|
|Good thing we performed a sub-surface inspection!|
|Believe it or not, this is a toilet flange. Really. It may need replacing.|
All of this work will be put aside for a little while. My mom left for home and my sister is arriving tonight. There will be adventuring.
Oh yeah, and while the weather is good, and there is still money in the budget for assistance, there is another project to do.
|Like the siding.|
|Or this hot mess.|
Fun time is over. Back to business.
