The demolition...

So, at 8 am this morning our wonderful contractor and his son showed up. It was time. No turning back now.
So, first they removed the big items, the vanity and the toilet
The next came all the and I mean ALL the plaster rock needed to come off....to get to plumbing, remove the old tiles etc...
We did find that there was a lot of rot occuring in the shower pan...It still has more to remove...lots of cement and all....

Here is the shower now.....
Yup, that is the stinky little valve that started it all....the one that didn't want to give us hot water....and yes, I was right that the crack in the tile wasn't a good thing.....
So, now, our bathroom will be in the 21st century, with better wiring and water....but boy, what a mess!
It will be worth it though when all is said and done....
Are we having fun yet??
Oh and we are taking the sofit out above the shower, it will make it the same height as the rest of the bathroom...and though it is a tiny little shower, it will feel bigger just because of the height!

That's the view of the sofit into the attic.....
Yup, it will be a long haul....
That's it for now.....
I will post more tomorrow!
