Welcome back. If you're following along, Linda from Calling It Home is hosting the One Room Challenge and because I'm a masochist I'm making it a Two Room Challenge. One intentional (family room) and one unintentional (1st floor powder room).
The powder room was the unintentional renovation. While installing a slider door in the basement we discovered mold and rotten wood from a toilet that had probably been leaking for years.
The good news is we discovered the problem before it was a widespread mold problem and our toilet fell through the floor.
The bad news is that it meant we had to completely gut a room that we had already renovated. Womp womp.
So down to the studs it went. Not even a sub-floor remains. That's the basement floor you see between the joists.
The room looked like this the day we moved in.
Then it looked like this...
...then a little of this....
...and today it looks like this:
The plumber says the stack would probably be fine for another 10 years but because we already have the walls open we're going to replace the entire thing now. Cha ching.
Sigh. Money and time I hadn't planned on spending. Plumber comes next week and then it will be time to put this room back together. Again.
