If you’ve been a reader of this site for any amount of time, you might remember that a few years ago we went through a flurry of home remodeling. We ripped up all the carpets, put down wood and tile floors, and stripped the bathrooms down to the studs and rebuilt them. The last of this was done two years ago, and we thought it really would be the last.
But no. I cocked up the bathrooms so bad, the showers in particular, that water was leaking everywhere and the drywall was rotting away. So this spring we’ll see the house once again filled with the implements of renovation, as I have to tear the bathrooms apart once again and rebuild them. This time, I’m not using sheetrock, I’m using waterproof cement board. I’m not using plastic panels, I’m using ceramic tile. And I don’t care what my wife says, I’m sealing that son of a bitch up with three inches thick of caulk all the way around. It’s getting done right this time, or else.
Or else next time we just sell the house.
