Bathroom Renos

We are having our en suite shower gutted and re-done.  This needed to be done, I have mentioned before that it is gross and that I have not showered in there for about 2 years now.  It was strictly R’s shower, it was small and grungy and mouldy and GROSS.  The entry to the shower was so narrow that R probably couldn’t have just walked straight in, he would need to turn sideways a little to fit through.  So last week an old friend of R’s came by to check it out for us, he is a contractor and just happened to be available this week (I think R pre planned this, just so I would say ‘yes’).  One look and he told us R should not have used that shower.  The mould in the grout was uniformly spread across the bottom of the shower floor, and the water wasn’t draining properly.  We decided that if we were going to undertake the shower reno, we may as well make it bigger in there.  I have decided to post a picture of the progress every day or 2 so you can see how it’s coming along.   SC (the contractor) started yesterday with the demolition of the shower, it was much worse than he originally thought and mentioned we were very lucky that it hadn’t yet leaked through the kitchen ceiling.  Whoever installed this shower the first time around didn’t know what they were doing, apparently it was done a little backwards which explains the mould and nastiness.  Here is today’s picture – this is day 1 of Shower Reno.  Old tiles and mould are gone, and you really get a feeling for how small and dark it was – ridiculous really when you see the size of our bathroom.  I think our bathroom is the same size as our bedroom at our old house. 🙂
