New Bathroom

Sunday, January 25, 2009

I could gush on and on about my amazing, hard-working husband who put a second bathroom in our home all by himself (and with the help of some GREAT friends). But, I'll let the pics speak for themselves.

First we had to design and pick the area for the new bathroom. We choose a section of the large back bedroom. RJ had to remove the back bedroom closet and take up the floor.

Our house is built on a concrete slab. They had to jackhammer through the slab to do the plumbing. (Blair and Tony rock for the late nights working on the slab.)




They also tore back the wall to do the water pipes. We strategically choose the location for the new bathroom as it backs up to our existing bathroom. This allowed us to use some of the existing plumbing. It also meant we were without a toilet and running water for 5 days. That was interesting...


We'll take help from wherever we can get it.



Thanks Dave for the framing!



After the plumbing was all done RJ had to do all the electrical, drywall, painting, tiling, etc. (Thanks to Mark and Brian.) Those photos are on the other camera and it is super time consuming to get them off and uploaded. So I'll just proceed to the finished project. (FYI - the bathtub was someone's yard art at one point. RJ got it from Craigs List for $100 and completely refinished it himself!)

Oh my goodness... who knew RJ was so handy! Outstanding job! I just had to giggle about a pregnant woman with no running water for 5 day though... funny!

The bathroom is AMAZING! The fact that RJ redid that bathtub is so cool. But and inquiring mind wants to know, what did you do without running water?
