Not exactly what we had planned
So, the bathroom remodel has started. The plumbers came out today, and we learned tree roots have grown into the main pipe and broke it. Now they will be digging up the yard this week to replace the pipes. (thank goodness this whole mess wasn't cause by a toy being flushed!!!) Already things are behind schedule. When Jeremy pulled up the floor, it was worse than expected. My dad is a contractor, so I know well before a single screw is even touched that a project will take longer than expected. There is always something. Still, that knowledge doesn't make it any easier to have the bathroom torn to bits with 6 kids in the house. I'm looking forward to the finished product (large soaking tub, tiled shower walls, new tile on the floor), but it's going to be a long week.
