Bathroom Remodel: Day 2

 Day 2 is More Demolition and Some Remodel

The floor and ceiling came all the way out today.  We were really worried about the floor being damaged, but lucky for us, it's really just in one corner.  We'll get a few boards replaced and all will be well.
 It turns out that our low ceiling was caused entirely by a big light and fan.  Take those out, and you have a much higher ceiling!

Our contractor thinks that, on the basis of fixtures and materials, the most recent remodel was probably as recent as nine years ago.  It didn't age well, though, because it wasn't installed well.

All the plaster is gone, all the old lights are gone, and we're starting to build.  We got a new hole for the vent and a new eight-foot ceiling.  It's going to feel a lot more spacious, I think.
