|Meanwhile, in the half-emptied living room, the new tub has arrived and the shower surround warms itself by the fireplace.|
The plummer I found to help with the work recommended a durable fiberglass tub with horizontal seams in the surround. It's supposed to not get as gringy. (You know what that word means right? Even though I made it up?)
|Progress is being made. Okay, the new tub is not hooked into the plumbing yet, but at least it's in place!|
|Still needs a shower head... and drywalling in.|
|The tub just squeaked in. Any tighter and we'd have had to move the window, not just the window trim.|
|But doesn't the new drywall look good? There's something about freshly spackled drywall that always seems so hopeful to me. Like I imagine artist feel with a freshly gessoed canvas.|
