Today's project at the Batcave: Removing this.
It is actually more of a period piece......But the sink leaks...And did for an unknown amount of time before we moved in......and the whole thing has to go. Stinky.
And butt ugly to boot.
It was original to this house, which actually began it's life in another town, and another time.
The cabinet was made of 3/4 inch plywood. Solid as a rock even with the rotted bottom. Since this bathroom had been the victim of many separate random caulking accidents, that all had to be cut out too.
Out it came. With a final whimper.
Big discovery? The house has hardwood floors under the decades of layers of vinyl. (we have spotted some shag carpet behind a baseboard in another room too.)
We knew we don't have drywall, its the old plaster on mesh. Its like living in a cage, and the cordless phone doesn't get outside reception.
Heh. Harder for Csis to listen in.
What is going in now?
A pedestal sink that we got a massive deal on, wainscotting, and a temporary vinyl floor I got at the restore for $20 bucks. (It was new, obviously a leftover)
We figure this whole bathroom renovation will cost about $300 bucks, which will include the tub/shower tile and the new tile on the floor after the tub is redone. Scavengers we are. :)
Edit: The Loverly yellow ribbon was not in remembrance, it was a temp fix to keep the friggin cat out. She rummages through the cupboards at night.
