I have all my pics on my iPad and can only post them in this section so I will do a new post as we move along.
The following pics are with the walls demo'd to the studs, nothing to exciting. This is where we have been stopped at for a couple weeks. We are waiting for the shower stall to come in which should be today!!!! I told DH to call his brother to see what we can do to prepare for the install. If he can definitly be here on Thursday for the install we could go ahead and get the old shower/tub out. There will be plumbing work needed, the shower head is about 6-8" to low for us. The people who built this house must have been short because this is the case with many things in the house. The vanity mirror, the kitchen cabinets, even the basement could have had another row of brick to give better ceiling height. We also need shut offs put in more convenient locations, currently we have to get into the ceiling in the basement.
The 3rd photo is standing at the tub looking back to the door. That corner is where the big corner cabinet, I mentioned, was hung. It was the only storage besides the vanity we had in there. The second photo is the long wall opposite the vanity and where the eventual linen closet will go. You can see we have some venting pipes to contend with, but they will be concealed within the closet/wall.
