New bathroom Floor
Here are before & after pictures of the bathroom floor in our lower level, I refer to it as the lower level because we live in a bi-level & don't really have a basement. Anyway, it was in need of being replaced only because we had a slight leak around the toilet & there was a growing stain mark that was getting progressively larger. Here you see the old floor, the stain is not visible in the picture however.
We didn't want to spend huge amounts of money in this very narrow and long room so checked out the remnants at a local flooring store. We found one but it was actually more expensive than purchasing the exact same flooring off the roll & getting just the size we needed.
Most of you know that my husband is very capable of installing just about anything after all he did work several years as a maintenance man but he did inlist the help of one of our friends who recently did just the same in his own home. It looks like a small job but anyone who has done this knows it takes a certain amount of prep work, just to get to the nitty gritty. It took a couple of days to complete but they did a superb job.
Here you see the new flooring completed. I think it turned out very nice & like it much better than the old. We even got one of those new fangled rapid flush all, swoosh toilets & you better be well off the seat before you flush or you just might loose some body parts. I think it has its own sucking device somewhere within the inner parts. Personally, I think toilets are one of the stupidest looking things one must have in their homes, however it is better than an outhouse!!!!
