For the First Time

For the first time in my life, I took a shower in my own home last night!! I think it was the best shower of my whole life!
There are still a few things we have to do to complete the bathroom but, we are moving on to start the old bathroom/new laundry room today. We need to get the old bathtub out and remove the old subfloor. My sister and BIL have a bet with Ryan and myself that we alone cannot remove the old bathtub ourselves. The bathtub is an old cast iron, clawfoot tub, weighing approx. 300 lbs (136 kg). If Ryan and I can move it out by ourselves, they buy us dinner, if we cannot not, we have to buy them dinner. Great motivation!


Here is the before with the kitchen sink
