Shower Demolition Day 2


Progress? Yes. Dramatic progress? No. We didn’t even take pictures tonight, there wasn’t much to see. We did get the huge cement blob off of the floor fairly easily. Well, Zach used a crowbar to loosen it off of the floor and then picked it up and carried it to the garage. To give you an idea of how heavy it was, here it is: we were going to carry it down the stairs together, sharing the weight… but it was too heavy for me to even carry half of it. SO – Zach carried it down the stairs and out the garage all by himself!! What a man!!

So, once we got the cement blob out, there really wasn’t much more demolition to do. We tore up a little of the sub-floor so we can access the drain to move it to the center and also move a drain vent pipe because right now it’s sticking out where we don’t want it in our shower.

So after a trip to Home Depot, we got the parts and pieces to move part of the drain pipe and start work on plumbing the over-head shower heads. After crawling around in the attic for a while, we decided to call it a night. Tomorrow we’ll start fresh after work with the goals of getting the drain, drain vent pipe and over-head plumbing complete. Then we’ll take a step back and decide what to do next! What a mess!! But it’ll be worth it!!! I love doing home improvement projects with Zach… he’s so smart and thorough when he thinks of how to accomplish a task. I am so proud of him and what he can do! And it’s always fun to be by his side, helping any way I can!
