We have decided to re-do our bathroom. As can be seen in the picture below, this was really a truly necessary job.
When you need to hold the wall together with duct tape - and even that doesn't work, it's time to take the bull by the horns and do something about it.
So we're doing something. As I write, the contractor is upstairs ripping apart the bathroom.
Hopefully the job can be done fairly quickly, because, while we do have a second half-bath in the basement - it is just that. No shower - no bathtub - nothing like that. And it's in the basement - not the most convenient for late night wakings. But - it will all be worth it. (I know it will).
It's looking better already!
