DEMO DAY(s)! for the bathroom

The bathrooms in this house are probably the biggest projects we’re taking on.  They’re livable, but clearly pretty dated.. and generally just not the best.  Here’s what we’re working with for the guest bathroom:

Our rough remodel plan is:

-Install vent fan
-Demo/clear room
-Get plumbing work done (heighten the shower head/replace and raise the mixing valve)
-Install new tub (we had originally planned to just get the tubs reglazed, but it turned out to be way cheaper just to get a new one)
-Cementboard/waterproof/tile tub surround
-Install can light above tub/ move switches
-New flooring/trim
-Paint
-Install new vanity/ toilet/ light fixture

Straightforward right? 🙂 The biggest problem we have with both the bathrooms (they’re pretty much identical) is space.  While we were planning this project we decided we wanted to rip out the vanity/mirror cabinet/cabinet above the toilet, and come up with an alternative that doesn’t make the bathroom feel even smaller than it is.  Additionally we’re trying to stay pretty light with our paint/tile choices since the bathroom doesn’t have any natural light.

But anyways, DEMO DAY(s)!

Demo was pretty tedious at first, but then we got a proper sledgehammer and borrowed a mini jackhammer from a friend and went to town!

It’s so exciting to have a clean slate!
