Good bye 1988 bathroom.
My house was built in 1940.
The downstairs bath is seven by eight feet.
The demo begins.
Jim, in the red shirt.
He's bailed us out of the problems of earlier substandard contractors.
Mike, his young helper, on the right.
My old bathroom, in a dump truck.
More for the dump truck.
More to come down.
The Plan B problem.
That's the shower drain, in front of the water pipes.
It needs to relocate about a foot south (Plan A).
Unfortunately, a foot south proves to hold the heating duct.
Jim's solution is Plan B. Later.
A completely unexpected problem.
The diagonal planks are from 1940.
They should have been repaired in 1988.
That carpenter was Bill, a friend of Mom's.
I hired him on her recommendation.
She stayed out of sight the day I fired him.
End of day one.
Jim and Mike even reset the the toilet,
So this old lady could still sleep in her own room yet tonight.
