Knowing that I had purchased a home that needed a lot of upgrades, I was not really sure where to start after I moved in. So, I instead chose to settle in and move my furniture around for a bit while I thought things through. I finally decided that it would be good to start with bathroom remodeling because I have two bathrooms that are small, and I could get a feel for how long things would take by doing these two rooms. I planned to do some of the work myself and the rest of it would be done by people who know what they’re doing when it comes to plumbing and things like that.
The first thing that I wanted to do was to have a new tub installed. This is definitely not something that I can handle by myself, so I had a handman come over and give me a quote. I was kind of surprised that he didn’t give me a money amount that was much higher, which was nice. That means that I got to upgrade the tub that I purchased and had installed. He even put in a glass sliding door for me. I loved it, and asked him how much it would be to put in a new sink and to re-do the plumbling. Both are things I felt I could not handle on my own. He gave me an equally low price, so I was again able to buy some nice things to have installed.
The only major remodeling that I did by myself was to install a new toilet. I had done this before for my parents when I was a teen, so I felt fairly comfortable doing it. It was pretty easy to do. The entire place looked really nice when I was done.
