That’s the first word‡ but the last word is “GUT IT”
seems to be the apposite mot juste… I’ve got to concur on that bottom line. Gut like rancid pesky fishy, at arms’ length with protective gear.
Since this bath is (ultimately) on an outside wall (north-west corner to be precise) & it had been the rearmost part of the garage, guessing that there’s little to naught out to the stucco-covered brick veneer which is the outer building shell.
In for a penny, in for a pound… should also raise the floor (& commode) 5″ up to same height as rest of house; utilise the whole footprint of the room instead of having two big dead zones; pocket door & other ‘Universal Design’ features like hand rails, relocating water knob & nice shower heads.
Already came with a phone line in there, just need to pull A/V & cat 5 cable; tho may not be enough room for the triangular Jacuzzi I’d been eyeing (nor extra $1,000 in budget).
Does one tile ceiling, too? Sweat equity I can contribute, but don’t know if I’ve got all the skill-sets for everywhere in the project. May seek out a tile maven for at least parts of the gig.
Forthcoming drawings & photos as things develop; have to blog it for posterity, or at least the inquest. Should be able to masque up & get down by this weekend. But now for an IPA —
B/4 there is CONstruction there must be DEstruction (TOH, Book of Kevin, ch.2, verse 5, Letter to the Elysians)
