Bathroom Remodel: Day 1
I missed the photo of the horribly botched job of the wall behind the shower stall before our contractor took off the random boards that were slapped on with no apparent rhyme or reason. There had been no vapor barrier applied, so many of the boards were actually damp and molding.
The new window we had installed earlier is lovely, though. It has privacy glass on the bottom half so that we can shower with the top half of the window open for ventilation while still avoiding eye contact with our neighbors.
I now also know where exactly the water damage on the basement ceiling came from; one of the times this bathroom flooded, the water went to the corner of the bathroom and right down the hole for this pipe.
At the end of the day, I was told that my bathroom was not cooperating very well. Based on my experience with it in the five years I've lived here, I am not surprised.
