This is Ed, retired schoolteacher, union organizer,
He wants to remodel the bathroom on the second floor:
We are getting a new cast-iron tub, 60" vanity with two basins,
toilet moved to the adjacent wall, next to the vanity, tile
wainscot. All the drains and water pipes are replaced,
new cast iron pipe and fittings on the outside wall:

Toilet drain is moved, plywood subfloor over original
1x4 t&g floor is going down:
New 1 1/2" copper drain, 1/2" copper hot and cold water pipes
toilet, two sinks in place:
The latest pictures, here,
1/29. Today, 2/7, there is tile backerboard over the
the floor and on the frame around the tub.
sheetrock has been installed to the lower wall/wainscot area,
Jacket glass fabric reinforcement has been embedded in a coat
drywall compound over the cracked plaster surfaces and the
coat of topping compound applied over all
plaster and drywall. More to come.
As promised, on March 5, there is much left to do but light at
of the tunnel.......
The 6.5" square porcelain tiles are from Italy and the door
installed by Schicker Shower Doors.
The 60" wide vanity with granite countertop and dual basins
Sincere Hardware. The toilet is a 3-liter flush with
easier to sit down and get up.
Won't be long, now!
In order to provide adequate subfloor support as well as level a
that has a
hump down the middle and a corner that's a little over an inch
the high point,
there is a step at the doorway, trimmed out in some used oak
Ed had salvaged.
Minka-Lavery lights reflect the period of the house.
