bathroom status: 89% done!

progress report on the longest bathroom remodel ever - top pic aug 13, bottom pic sept 18.  all i need now are for the sink faucets to be turned 90 degrees [should point outward so you turn the water toward yourself...rather than into the spout], the sink drain to stop leaking into a tupperware in the vanity, the flooring laid, window trimmed out, and the new radiator connected.

up against the wall motherfuckers

citation [sorry not sorry it's wikipedia..]
so day 4 of my lovely home reno project... my buddy questioned where i wanted the shower head and plumbing located.  seeing as i had confirmed time frame [multiple times], work scope, plans i'd drawn up both on paper and drafting software [in person and via email], walked through the potential layout [over lunch], and showed him all the components i'd bought... i was pretty pissed when he said, oh i didn't know you wanted that there.  i guess were ripping out this wall too, since we need 6" for a wet wall and the existing studs are only 4".

sometimes in school, you learn stuff and junk

liiiiike how to draw up and wire your own bathroom circuit!  even though you [i] sometimes drop out of a program halfway through since it isnt heading in the direction you hoped but it was an associates degree and you already completed two others...  but that doesn't stop me from writing run-on and incomplete sentences, no sir.

a brief respite

for a year now, ive assumed the hot water dripping in the bathtub was from the faucet not turning off fully, and spent countless minutes trying to crank it closed more.  however, after the tub was removed and the water turned off... it continued to drip out the hot side.  all over the floor.  solution? 
red solo cup.  sigh.

a wall full of secrets

and by secrets, i do mean razors. 
and no i didn't cut my finger on the razors.  more like i black-swan-ed a giant hangnail and it bled everywhere.

bathrom demo

ok so it's been a month since i managed to post "the bathroom demo is starting!" pics.  here are some more demolition pics.  cos the bathroom STILL ISNT DONE YET and it may be driving me more than a bit crazy insane batshit nutso.
turns out the tiniest crappiest vanity ever ... fell apart as we were removing it.  the sink was barely caulked to the wall and the sides fell away once we removed the sink.  the trap underneath was made of some kind of chrome coated plastic which merrily cracked into pieces.  but the fitting i added to the cold intake line held just dandy.
