My Bathroom Project

 Turned out to be a night mare. I ended up stepping through the floor (thankfully I had a throw rug down so I only have a small cut on my leg above the ankle).

Well Bill started in on it Sunday morning and realized it would need to be professionally done. The main floor joist (its a double one) is rotted through, the shower has dropped 6 inches and the partial wall is detached from the floor.

My landlords are up at Lake Erie for the month, finally got hold of them and they had a guy out here today to do an estimate. Tomorrow at 7:30 am he'll be back to fix it.

Tomorrow night we'll be up laying the tile down I dread the area's around the water heater, since that will be a pain to move around as it sits in a corner.

Then I'll need to get new trim and paint. I really hate the paint in there beige paint on the walls. YUCK!

 100% reimbursed for any out of pocket expenses. the landlords called a company to come in and do the major repairs, since we had already bought the tile, I'll be getting it reimbursed at the end of the month.

Also she will pay for the paint for the bathroom since we just painted in there prior to moving in.

 She had to hire someone to come in and fix the floor joists, level the floor ~ all the fun stuff.

We are just laying the tile that I picked out.

I also will get a break on the rent for doing the labor. hehehehe. every little bit helps. LOL
