Well, let's try one.
Take your time.
|Did you guess a box of contractor bags?|
Now, back to our horror show.
When last we left, the back bathroom looked like this...
|Yeah, gross, but better than it was.|
First, we had to deal with the water supply lines.
|Note the conspicuous lack of shutoff valves.|
|Since we are wrecking things...|
Sawed off the hoses and cleaned them up with the utility knife. Then it was time for...
|That's better. I'm going to use pex tubing up to the fixtures.|
We got to work and pulled off all the trim around the shower. We saved it to put back on if we so choose. Then we started pulling out the screws holding the shower in place. It was weird because some of the screws were square drive and some were bolt head and I had to have a ratchet. And, several of the screws were driven into the drywall alone and wouldn't back out. I found a neat way to get those out.
|The flat pry bar wouldn't just pull them out, but it gave enough pressure to use the screwdriver.|
We finally got all the finishing nails and screws out and everything was nice and loose.
All we had to do was yank it out, right?
Take a look and see if you can figure out the problem.
We thought about getting the sawzall and just carving it into small enough chunks to carry out. We thought about that a lot. I must admit, I smiled a little at that idea, but no. I just hate destroying something that could still be useful to us or someone else if we don't have to. There had to be a way.
What could it be?
My mom helped with this next bit.
|Sarah's spirit animal is rage.|
|Not bad really.|
I didn't feel like going to the hardware store again, so that was the end of that project for the day. Luckily, there are other projects. Perhaps I'll tell you more about those another day.
Oh yeah, for the record: One more opportunity to flood the house and I didn't.
