I love our van! I am so happy we had a way to bring home sheets of drywall, a tub. and all the other stuff needed ASAP for this project.
YUCK! Good news is the floor is in wonderful shape! We don't have to replace the floor.
NEW TUB! It looks very odd with no walls around it.
Umm.... We had another leak dripping down on our living room floor. D. asked to clean it up. What a good girl I have!
Rob and my Dad working. I know I have told you all that I have the best parents in the world. My Dad is so nice he came up to help both Monday and Friday.
LOOK! Almost 2 walls up!! Hooray!
This is D. pretending to go potty. She wanted to see what Daddy was doing so she yelled to go potty after bedtime. Once she found the box of screws she NEEDED to help so the last wall in the shower she got to hand Daddy the screws and tools to help. Then she didn't want to go back to bed she wanted to keep helping.
This is her wall. Daddy told her many time this is the last screw I need. She kept ignoring him saying over and over again here you go Daddy then handing him yet another screw. Rob keep finding one more place to add a screw so he could make his little girl happy. She screamed when I told her Daddy was done for the night.
We let her draw on her wall and told her she needed to get to sleep so she could help Daddy more in the morning. Below is D's picture on our wall.
She went back to bed and I got to take a bath in the new tub. We should get the shower done on Rob's next day off. Rob is going to have a hard time getting ready for work in the morning. He will have to get up a lot earlier to take a bath every day. We have a small leak so he has to find that before finishing up this project. I am so happy to have a working tub! I was so afraid when he smashed out the old tub that the floor would be rotten under the tub and we would need a new floor. I was very excited to see nice looking dry wood on our floor with no water damage under the tub. I was also afraid that something would go wrong with putting in the new tub and we might be without a tub for weeks. I think whenever a person does a do it yourself remodel you know you might run into a problem, but a do it yourself remodel in a farmhouse built in the 1800's can add a lot of unexpected problems along the way. When my house was built it didn't have a bathroom only an outhouse and no electricity. Many people have lived in and done work on my house so it is hard to tell what one will find when tearing things out. I am very happy that it was only a day without a tub for us. Now I don't have to worry about my children being filthy dirty and smelly. LOL! I have to say that drywall around the tub looks so much better than that torn out gross look of when it was all gutted out!
