Thursday night, the DH spent over three hours breaking up the tub and ripping out drywall and insulation to prep for the plumber Friday. (He's beautiful in his safety glasses!) It was a really messy job with all kinds of nasty things flying through the air. I think the cleanup took longer than the demolition -- though that may almost always be the case. I think the DH may have actually enjoyed breaking up the tub with a sledge hammer, but it was downhill from there. Removing the fawcet included turning off the water main and going without water over night. Good thing the DH could shower at our dear Penny's house, so he didn't have to go to bed covered in sweat, dust, and other things that flew onto him in the process.
On Friday, the plumber installed the shower/tub combo and left us (or should I say, left the DH) with the finishing work. That means he has to put in the drywall, tape and mud it, texturize, and paint. No problem! Today, the DH had his friend The Duke come over to help and they got all the drywall put up. It will take a few days to get the rest of it done, but we're making great progress!
