The next step in the renovation process was framing in the new walls for the bathroom, framing in where the south window was taken out and sister-ing in some studs next to rotten studs. It's much safer this way so we don't actually have to take any studs out. And all of our original studs are actual 2" x 4". 2 x 4 studs today are actually 1 1/2" x 3 1/2". So over the next couple of days, framing got done, a new window got put in (yay!) and the cement backer board for the tile prep.
New Window! Southeast corner with that beautiful tall cabinet and the corner of the half bathroom!
The bathroom framing.
Southeast corner again.
Through the bathroom towards the east window facing the backyard.
Tobias inside the bathroom. He kept calling it his little house :-)
Tile board now in place. Kids decided to make a game of going in and out of the bathroom between the studs. Surprisingly (and thankfully) no one got hurt.
Here you can better see the framing for the old window.
His "rawr!" face.
Hope everyone is having a great summer!
