Demo Day 1/7/13
(I had done a little demo on the wallpaper
and we had a shutter installed prior to Demo Day)
End of Week One 1/14/13
Some more pictures from this last week...
This is where the old tub was. When they pulled the tub out,
there was a mound of dirt underneath it.
That mound of dirt was an old ant bed.
Welcome to Texas.
And hello old NAVY BLUE wallpaper.
This is the paper that was on the walls when
we bought the house in 1999. This room was dark, dark, dark
....except for the shiny brass.
A moment of silence for the ants.
The guy in this picture is the hardest working guy ever.
But he says nothing. Nothing. I talk to him...he says nothing.
I ask "do you speak English?" He looks at me....nothing.
So I guess that's a no. Which is "no" in English and Spanish.
But he says nothing.
Not even a change in expression.
New tub set in concrete.
New tub and surrounding frame with a step up to the tub.
The tub will be under mounted in a marble slab
and the left edge will now be a bench in the shower.
There have already been a couple of bumps in the road (like they made the step up to the tub 10" and I had to ask them to lower it to 7") and I expect there will be a few more,
but already I can tell this remodeling is going to be worth it.
However, I'm not sure we will ever get all of the dust dusted.
