We are in the middle of having our bathroom remodeled. Years ago, my son was taking a shower and leaned his hand up against the wall. The wall crumbled beneath it and we realized that we had some water damage. We hired someone to come in and fix the damage. He started to fix it, but then flaked out on us and stopped coming. He even left his tools and never came back. I left word for him to come get his tools, but he never did. We have tried over the years to find someone to fix our shower, but everytime someone came to give an estimate, and said they would like to do the work, they never followed through. We sort of got frustrated and gave up. But now we are ready to get it fixed.
I have to admit though that it is scary to see things being carted out of my bathroom. It's pretty much gutted at this point. We decided to replace the cupboards since these are shot, and we decided that the bathtub is old enough that if we don't replace it now, we will end up having to have tiling fixed later if we have to replace it later. So we are just putting in a new one now. But it sure is scary to see it all gutted like this. I guess I'm committed to this remodel now though.
