bathroom renovation: day two

By: Natalie DiScala

So, things are trucking along on my bathroom renovation. Here's a look at how things are going: The mess in my condo has multiplied by, oh, I don't know ... three? Understandably. There's a lot of stuff that needs to go in the bathroom and not a lot of space. But again, these guys are as neat as they can be and considerate. I can tell that they've been taking good care not to damage my floor, especially. One of the guys from the Home Depot installation crew. So far, so good! We've only run into one small issue. While researching everything I needed for this bathroom renovation, I learned that standard tubs are now smaller than tubs from 20 years ago. My original tub was 64" while the newer tubs are only 60". (You can order a custom tub if you really want.) To make up for that difference in space, we decided to create a tiled ledge, which would not only solve the problem but give me some space for shampoo bottles and the like. When I got back to my condo yesterday, I saw that instead of a ledge, the guys had built out the wall. Looks fine but since this is already a small space, why make it even smaller? I talked to Tony, the project manager, and he says it's not a problem to put the ledge in as originally discussed. Pictured above is how it looks with the wall that was built to meet the tub. We'll see shortly what it looks like with the ledge. I think the ledge is a better solution. Do you agree?
