Of course, being me, I'm having all sorts of second thoughts. The new toilet seems huge in my tiny bathroom. The linoleum is way darker than its picture on the Armstrong site... Have I screwed up? Truth is it's already way better already than it was.
Fred, the guy doing most of the work - he did took out all the existing stuff with the minimal help of a plumber, laid the floor. Found some rotting boards under the tub, which he replaced and prepped the walls for the installation of the shower today. He's an amazingly hard worker. He did much of the work on the front ramp too. Today the shower goes in the rest of the way (I think) with a fold-up seat and hand rails. The sink, maybe tomorrow. Yippee! Now for pictures.
Ok... this isn't very good, but it's the BEFORE picture.... Pretty ugly, eh?

The new toilet (who posts about a toilet?). It seems a bit huge, but it's so much easier to sit and stand, and the saving in water is incredible. Really awesome. I just love flushing it. It's like a cool new toy. I really miss having a sink, though. It hadn't been delivered yet as of yesterday. Sigh. The linoleum is darker than it's pictures but it's growing on me. Oddly, I had envisioned the pattern running the other way. This is probably the better choice in such a narrow room because it probably makes it seem wider. (???)
The walls of the shower prepped for the final installation. I forgot to take a picture of the base but it's not actually that interesting... except to Angel who found a bunch of things to play with.
That's it for now. Truck just pulled in. My anxiety is really high today for some reason... even more than yesterday. Angel has been wailing from behind the bedroom door. She was really traumatized yesterday, so once the hammering starts, I think she'll be glad she's in there. And she is quiet already...
