Bathroom Renovation Step One

"I’m not doing the woodwork install on this renovation, but I’m up for everything else "

It’s time to change the look and feel of the bathroom. It’ll have a new custom made cabinet and sink, mirror, overhead cabinet, behind-the-door cabinet and a new face on the front of the tub; all in light a maple. The old face on the tub is a pained, cut-up, bifold. The first step is getting rid of the bifold so measurements can be taken. I’m not doing the woodwork install on this renovation, but I’m up for everything else like the plumbing, the electrical (new lights and a quieter fan) and prepping the surfaces like this one on the tub. I wasn’t sure what I’d find once the door came away from the tub. I was happy to see there was a wood frame of sorts. That will give the lads something to work with. The door was glued on and held up for many years. I don’t know what the plan is for the maple panel. Happily, nothing jumped out at me when the door came away! Well, I did see a ⅛” long silverfish. The room is going to get a coat of paint so taking the baseboards off is a good thing. That allows me to better prepare the wall. Some of the drywall on the ceiling will eventually come down so I can get access to the lights, fan and wiring. I’m not sure what is going in by the new mirror above the sink.
