After waiting for over a year to find a contractor that would give me the time of day I have finally started my bathroom renovation. I realize that this would be slightly more interesting in I had taken a picture of the room before they started gutting. None the less – here are some of the gutted pictures.
I have an 1850’s Victorian. The contractor decided that no one had touched the bathroom since 1961 as they found a bunch of old newspapers wadded up in the walls. He also asserted that putting 4 inches thick of cement 6 foot up all the walls was also a 60’s thing. When they pulled out the bath tub it was galvanized steel and weighed half a ton.
If I only had known that I had my own little private bomb shelter in the house, I might have just left it alone.
As the project progresses I will post more pictures!
