THE MASTER BATHROOM CARPET

January 14, 2016

After we had to go into the master bathroom to hang our winter wreaths, we yet again remembered its existence and finally decided we should like, make use of it. (I use the term “winter” wreaths not because I am secularizing Christmas or whatever, but because we still have them up, so I guess they are more like winter decorations. Is this normal? We sort of resolved to take ours down whenever our neighbor takes their stuff down. If he only knew the power he had.)

Once we decided to open this room up, I let myself really get optimistic about using the space. I will fast forward to the end and tell you my hopes were dashed like dust in the wind.

The carpet has primo disgusting stains, but we hoped there would not be water damage down to the subfloor.

First, we removed the blue carpet. Excitement level: high!

Next, an orange level of padding. Okay, we will get that out of there. Subfloor, here we come. Excitement level: peaking!

And then, the subfloor. With major water damage. The excitement level has flat lined. Well, how about we just close that door again and forget this ever happened and I will leave with what remains of my dreams in life.

The main repercussion of this discovery is we will not do a phase one and phase two in this bathroom, but instead wait until we are ready to gut it and do it how we ultimately want it all in one $wipe. This might sneak in by the end of 2016, but we have so much more terrific stuff on the docket before it.

I think I now believe that all bathrooms more than 10 years old with a bath tub or shower have water damage. At least I am cynical mentally prepared for the children’s bathroom.

    Try to tile the bathroom. I you do it right, you’ll never have a water damage.

      Yes! I want tile in here.
