It was good advice from my plumber : Have your ducks in a row .
All of my ducks lined up : electrician — plumber —- window man —- shower pan guy —- tile setter .
It would have done no good to have the shower pan guys come after the tile setter . The tile setter is the key craftsman . It wouldn’t be any good to have the tile set and then the plumber arrives . The electrician was happy to have the walls torn off to the studs so that he could run his wires where needed . Contractors know this stuff .
But , I’m not a contractor . I’ve done work around the house from time to time . I’ve been an owner of old houses , so issues arise . But I am amazed at the bathroom renovation process . A ton of stuff comes out of a bathroom during the demolition process . Putting it all together again is a complicated task .
I was lucky to have found good craftsmen . Any number of things might have gone all wrong .
