Honey... this doesn't look good.
Nope that would be termites.
After carefully examing our options we could A drill the floor B get rid of the shower.
Oh yes you see that towel?? That's where the light switches are.
SWEET a pedestal sink in 5x8 bathroom? idiots.
Thankfully tear out was a breeze thanks to the extra help.
Yum termite lunch
Why yes your drop box has got to go.
I know what this bathroom needs.. A pocket door!
Pocket door installed:
I moved the shower wall out 8 inchs and relocated the plumbing for a bigger shower. The builder used a pre-fab pan and a false wall.
Tile up and waiting on the shower valve cause Delta packaged the wrong one in the box fail :(
Did you notice the popcorn ceiling in the first 2 photos? That is gone too. All new ceiling, with orange peel texture and 4 4" can lights.
Shower door was installed today.
oooh look storage. Something a small bathroom desperately needs. I also added an eletrical outlet to the medicine cabinet to keep stuff of the counter.
All told we did the following:
Remove old shower
Remove door and install pocket door
Relocate electrical to the wall on the right as you enter the bathroom
Install medicine cabinet
Expand shower and relocate plumbing
