Phase 1

One day this will be the laundry room.

we decided that shower was less important than having clean clothes so we decided that this nasty stand up shower needed to go in order to make room for a laundry room. we are still not sure where they did laundry before, maybe a bucket out on the back patio, who knows. 

from the looks of things i thought this was a relatively new shower, after all there was an attempt to flip this house, but to my surprise it was not a beautiful one piece shower this was a mess. tile was underneath the vinyl and it was attached with some really nasty, gooey black gunk. 

now there is no more shower...
so if anyone out there has the need to do some plumbing i would recommend doing like this... small jobs only. I used PEX with shark bite fittings. it eliminates the need to soldier and glue anything... all you do is press the pieces together and like magic it doesn't leak. we are further along with it now but still not done... ONE DAY!!

Y'all are doing a great job. What a mess. I am glad I am not doing it. By the way, a laundry room would be an excellent idea. It is fun catching up and seeing what y'all are up to.
