before i forget; we rented the duplex out! june 15th came and we successfully have renters in place. another reason why we've relaxed a bit.
but, not before we tackled the 4th floor tub. as you can see in the pics, the tub was in REALLY BAD CONDITION. yes, this was the tub our previous renters used. no, they never complained. and if anyone has been following this blog for a looong time, this is the same tub we tried to re-porceanalize. it didn't work at all. frankly, it was a bloody mess. so, we took it out and replaced it. of course, once we took the tub out, we found some gross pipes full of hair and gook, and a couple or disentegrated pipes.
no pics, here, but we did successfully install a new tub and retiled the area around the tub.
