Getting Ready for the Plumbers

The plumbers called to say they were able to get to us sooner than we all expected, which meant, we had to get ready fast! The tub upstairs is not plumbed yet, and we have plans to rearrange the fixtures. To get to the plumbing, they would either have to go through the floor, or the downstairs ceiling. So last night, Chris and a good friend Sean started ripping out the upstairs bathroom floor. I joined in a little later and then Chris's brother, Matt and his girlfriend, Amy came to help. It was quite a mess and several layers thick. No worries there about the heavy iron tub falling through, that's for sure! Some of the original plaster will need to be removed, but much of the bathroom has newer drywall.

Wow! Is the wallpaper new or was it underneath plaster? I'd save a piece of the blue and white, that looks pretty contemporary to the time it was built. It's really cool. You might as well save a piece of the other too! Have fun plumbing!!!

There are SEVERAL layers of wallpaper! Different walls seem to be different ages. I don't think the bathroom was originally that big. It's a very interesting mystery! We are going to keep a clip of each wallpaper we find.
