Home Up

Here are photos of the reinstallation of the bathroom.  The original had been gutted prior to our purchase of the house.  Fortunately, the previous owner had never gotten around to throwing away the seafoam green fixtures, so back in they went. 

So, for our first big project on the house, we took out the original sheet linoleum floor, as it was fairly damaged and pretty darn ugly.  (It was solid black with homemade sponge applications of pink, green and white.)  Tough decision and one of our few destructions of original fabric.  So off it came, along with the tongue and groove fir, in preparation for a period-appropriate hexagon tile floor.
