What a relief.
After 9 years of renovations in this house, and with every room being overhauled in some way, major or minor, we have just about come to the end. This is the last room (for major reno’s anyway.)
I put this job off for obvious reasons. The mess in the bedroom, being without a bathroom and shower for a period of time and just basically the length of time to complete it. When you do the majority of work yourselves the projects seem to take forever.
As I stated before, when it comes to the before pictures, well yeah, I’m embarrassed to say that I used this bathroom the way it was for 9 years. Yes, for 9 years I looked at this first thing in the morning and last thing at night. Every time I walked in this bathroom I grumbled.
So here it is in all its glory.
The dreaded before pictures.
To understand how truly awful this bathroom was, I need to show you the layout. One third of the bathroom was taken up with this tub and almost one third was taken by the shower, which left me with one very small, crammed vanity. The shower was enclosed in drywall with only a small glass shower door for ventilation. I was constantly battling mold, even with leaving the fan running and the window open.
