Fixtures in…

Y’all might recall me and my friend Mike (also my step-dad) have been working on my he and my Mom’s bathroom.

Before:

Before

What can’t be seen here is the very pronounced un-level-ness of the floor. It was also extremely bouncy, which would turn out to be because the two supporting beams ran longways…and one was broken at one end, and the other was broken at the other end. Basically, nothing was supporting the floor but good intentions.

Other problems…no shower, and well, none of this stuff worked. The plumbing is trashed.

We started by tearing it out to the dirt.

During:

Leveling:

A bunch of jacking around...

Some major framing…

Gotta be 100 degrees in there...

Today we set the fixtures. This was a huge project…involving jacking up beams, major carpentry, and a complete gut of the plumbing.

After:

Fixtures set.

Needs a good cleaning, all the fixtures were stored outside/dusty…and we need to hook up the fresh water…and a bit more trim and some minor caulking…but at least it looks like a bathroom! We have a shower kit for the clawfoot tub as well.

The tub feets!

    I really like the beadboard look. The tubfoots are great. When I was a mere kidlet, we had a tub with clawfoot legs. Of course we also had a floor furnace in the hall, and I would have little griddy patterns on *my* feet, from going around the house barefoot. Many things have improved through the years…
