Down to the studs

We finally got a move on remodeling the bathroom. The bathroom has only had a 1/2 remodel in its 37 year history. So we tore out the five layers of floor and actually found the original linoleum. We took down the wall paneling (found some wallpaper samples) and trashed the tub. Once we were down to the studs we found that we had water damage, so we had to tear out the wall, we joked about making a walk out shower or possibly a bay window. So with the help of Ben and Mike, we got a new window and wall put in. Yesterday, Matt worked on the plumbing all day. He had to weld new pipes for the new shower faucet. He did an excellent job. Finally at the end of the day, we got the tub in place and the plumbing set. We picked out some awesome tile for the floor and for the walls in the shower. We are going to use a butcher block for the countertop with shelves underneath with baskets for our stuff. The sink is going to be a vessel sink with a cool faucet.

Here are some project photos .
