I thought demolition would be the hard part. Man oh man was I wrong! It took us a good four hours ripping my surround shower tub combo out. We used different saws and hammers to break it apart and then carried it out in chunks. The guys helping me capped the water off so that I’d still be able to use the sink and what not. Let me state this now, if you haven’t followed my previous blog we are all winging this! None of us have ever redone a bath before and we have been prepping ourselves with YouTube videos and advice from people we meet! On that note, my ex husband does drywall for a living and offered to handle that part. He is also a compulsive liar and it’s rare for him to follow through with anything he says. Thursday was our demolition day, my ex was supposed to drywall Friday, and then Saturday we would tile. It’s Monday morning and here I sit staring at the unfinished wall in my bathroom.
I’ve decided that after my morning class I am going to come back home and finish the job myself. Heck, I watched him do it… he measured the wall, cut the hardie board with a razor and then screwed it to the wall, how hard could it be? That’s only one of my dilemmas. The other dilemma is that facet. I think the guys helping me rigged it in the bathtub because it is not holding up well.
It’s not centered and there is a big gap between the tub and the facet. I’m having a mini stroke just seeing it, and imagining how in the world we are going to fix it. If ANYONE, ANYWHERE has advice for me I would greatly appreciate it!!!
