Because of a broken bathtub that flooded the floor, we have need for an update to a bathroom in one of my homes. The house is in a suburb just west of Chicago and was built midcentury early 1950's. I believe it was built in 1952. It still has a coal heat stove in the basement although has been retrofitted with central heat and air conditioning throughout.
And although Chicago Water and Fire were able to remove and dry the old boards and remove the tub without damaging any tile, we will have to replace it to install a new tub.
So although I love the design and handiwork of this tile job, it looks like it will all have to be replaced unless I can match it, which will be extremely hard to do.
So this week I am shopping for new tiles, tubs and fixtures. Stay tuned for updates and this project.
