Tomorrow I'll give you the last in the long line (well, 3) of Before & After posts: the bathroom. But first, I wanted to show you the pretty exciting demo we got to about a week ago.
Finishing the back of the house, what I affectionately call the "addition" - the back bathroom, the "animal room" and the laundry room - are all on our list of things we'd like to get done next year. In order to get that started pretty much everything has to be ripped down. Wasteful you say? Well, not actually because look at these piece of shit rooms
That's the "animal room," named that because it smelled like wet dog for about the first year we lived here. It sports holes in the floor, a 10 foot wide broken window with lovely curtains, and a door that's too short (which seems to be a theme in this house).
Then there's the back bathroom
I don't know about you, but a bathroom with missing floor tiles, a horrifically moldy shower and a improperly closed up door aren't the picture of perfection. Not to mention the doorway I'm standing in has 15 panels of glass that we had to cover with a towel so you couldn't see people doing their business.
And last but not least, let's see what the back of this lovely "addition" looks like from the backyard
Yep, it's allllll coming off.
So we broke out the hammers, crowbars and prybars and knocked some shit down
I mean now we knocked shit down
At the end of the madness we were left with a pretty cleared out space
I find it all very exciting. There's lots of space to plan, materials to pick out, and rooms to be insulated. Yay!
