Just When I Thought I Had Seen It All

We bought the house we're in a little over a year ago, November 2007. We pulled down all the wallpaper and painted, most of it. The hall bathroom was a pain, we couldn't get all the wallpaper down no matter what we tried. So "FINALLY" we have gotten around to fixing it. Completely gutting it. We started by pulling the paneling down, in which fortunately there was sheet rock behind it. A little less work for us to do. But this is also what we found. Water damage, and mold.

This is the wall behind where the toilet was.

This is the wall behind where the sink and vanity was.

And if all that isn't bad enough. Wait until you see the floors. Once we pulled up the peel-n-stick tile. Yep that's a crack you see in it. One of several. Not to mention just about as many different types of wood. Apparently at sometime, the bathroom flooded, and they replaced the flooring with whatever wood they had and could piece together enough to put tile on top of it.
So yep, I would say we have our work cut out for us. I'm wondering why when the inspector crawled under the house he didn't find this.

So what sold us on the house hmmmmm.......

Doesn't look that great now after sitting up all winter. But come the summer. With two kids here all the time, one that lives 15 minutes away and two more here every other weekend and most of the summer. We totally enjoy the pool.
