There is no nice and easy way to get it off the wall. Hammers, sledges,and pry bars. And dusty!
With the old plank floor removed and the old surround, work begins to update the plumbing throughout the house.
New plumbing throughout. ABS and Pex to replace the galvanized. More mess!
The studs on the right are where they are *sistered* to the existing warped studs. Though the original are still strong, we prefer our walls to be flat.
