As of yesterday morning, I believed this would be a “Bathroom: Midpoint” post. But as of this morning, seems like we may not be quite at the “midpoint” yet…
Things got a little complicated with our long-awaited remodel project after I came home from a weekend away at the cabin and discovered our contractors about to lay tile…
…only the plumbing attachments for the toilet and sink were still in the same places they’d always been.
The same STUPID, RIDICULOUS PLACES.
Too close together, and too close to the tub. So close, in fact, that our new modern toilet and sink won’t even fit there. They will literally be four inches ON TOP of each other. And part of the sink will be IN the tub.
Because THIS stupid little lameass sink is GONE. Rotting in my driveway (at the moment):
Anyway, we’re working it out. Our contractors are good guys and thank god we caught all this before the tile went down. It’s partly their screw up and partly ours – for not being extra specific about the placement to begin with (but I mean really, it’s mostly theirs; there is no way a modern sink and toilet could go back in those positions and why on earth did they not at least check the dimensions of the fixtures before they started covering stuff up, if they couldn’t tell just by LOOKING AT IT ALL?).
It’s not too late to fix, at least. It’s gonna add some time and we will probably have to pay at least for some additional labor, but I believe them when they say they will work with us to fix it as cheaply as possible. They’ve always been good to us.
I promised Trent I would curb my freak out, so this is officially now just an “in progress” update until further notice.
Here are some pics of the mayhem, which otherwise has been overall less terrifying than expected:
