I ripped out the carpet in the bathroom this week. It smelled like pee. Here’s Zoot sitting on the carpet one last time:
Under the carpet was some nasty padding:
And under that was some wierd old flooring that looks like those marble colored rubber balls that come with a jacks set.
Anyway, that smelled like mildew. I put down some baking soda and left it there overnight. That got rid of the smell. Now it’s just ugly. But it’s better than pee-smelling carpet.

I am just a six inch piece of plastic tubing away from completing the bathroom sink installation. I made my third trip to Menard’s last night and STILL came home with the wrong size tube. I just wasn’t paying attention! Gah! I wanted so badly to get up this morning and brush my teeth in my new sink. Oh well, as my Great Grandpa Rivera would sigh in resignation at the end of the day: ”mañana.” (“Tomorrow.”)
Meanwhile, here are photos of my progress so far:
Last night when I realized I was missing one final part to hook up the sink, but it was too late to go back to Menard’s, I decided to take a break and go hang out with my friends at a bar. After a gin and tonic and sampling my friends’ drinks, I decided to come home around 11:30pm and at least hook up the drain stop before going to bed. Let’s hear it for plumbing while under the influence!
There was a big hole in the wall behind the back of the vanity from where they’d taken out some water damaged plaster from the old leaky sink. The top of our drain pipe branches up and over to the left somewhere. I can’t figure out where this extra drain pipe goes. It’s pointing toward the outside wall, but there’s no evidence of it exiting the house. Quite mysterious.
Tonight, I will be making what will hopefully be my final trip to Menard’s for this project. Hopefully.

Hopefully this will be the last of it. But don’t worry! I got to do the fun part today: demolition!
Today’s mission: demolish the old bathroom sink to make room for the new bathroom sink!
Coming up later this week: the installation of our new pedestal sink! (It’s shiny!)
