It is hotter than heck outside so it is time to do some indoor projects. One of the big ones we have been wanting to do is remove the massive, round, ugly garden tub from the master bath. I think the pool in our other house was smaller than this thing. And yes, that is shag carpet on the side…
We shut off the water and disconnected the water and drain pipes. Lucky for us there was an access panel making it a lot easier for us. We removed the 4 screws holding it down and the garden tub came right out.
Knocked down and remove the frame and we are left with pipe and a huge hole.
We removed the flooring all the way down to the plywood which is in really good shape minus the massive hole. Very happy about that. Newer homes use OSB we have 3/4 inch thick quality plywood.
We cut and capped all the lines, turned the water back on to make sure we did not have any leaks. Then we placed everything under the floor put in some insulation and spray foamed the hole. We will cut it flush when it is dry and we start to lay the new flooring.
One of the things we did as we are ripping stuff apart is to look at the AC/Heating vents. We noticed that they were dirty and not sealed very well. It looked like they had been taped at one time, but it was worn off.
We cleaned and re-sealed:
I don’t know if this happens to other folks, sometimes when you start something you get a little carried away? Yea…. No more carpet in the master or the closet.
Hey the floors look good in here too! Now for some touch up painting and flooring.
