Removing bathtub & shower wall liners
Liner was thick and hard to remove
Last piece of liner!
Tub out and starting on removing tile floor - 1" of mortar to get out.
Sheetrock coming down
Where tub & shower used to be
Where toilet used to be
Lower corner was all rotted out
Where vanity used to be
What?! The toilet was sitting on a concrete slab!
Hmmm - newspapers in the concrete form
May 17, 1964!
Forms removed - need to bust away concrete to get to the sewer pipe
Found rotted floor joist inside the concrete slab - I guess that's one way to fix a bad floor.
Sewer pipe revealed - yeah!
Nothing holding up that corner now
Rotted out portion of joist removed
John busting up sewer connection so toilet can be lowered 1"
