I felt a little guilty sharing the bathroom remodel with friends and family and not let them in on the secret. The other thought swirling in my head is the song Secrets by One Republic. You know, like it’s something that I can’t confess.. but now I need to give all my secrets away. Well, today is the day to share the secret to a bathroom remodel.

I shared the boys’ Jack & Jack bathroom remodel here, but I did not let y’all in on the secret. It’s more like a tip than a secret. Either way here we go … 


 We planned on the bathroom remodel to be completed before our oldest son (my lefty) returned home for Thanksgiving. 

We should have clarified the year. 


The Secret to a Bathroom Remodel

Days before we planned to start the bathroom remodel I tossed a question around in my head.

No one else was in my thoughts. 

“What if we could pay someone to demo the bathroom?”

Just asking the question made me feel like I was cheating on my bathroom. 



To settle my guilty conscience, I ran the question by my husband. Casually … while I texted a Realtor friend for the name of her demo guy. 

Together, we decided, after I had already texted this guy, there was no harm in getting a quote for a bathroom demo. 


If the sequence of events sounds a bit off it is to protect my sources and timeline of events. 

Secrets …

A demo crew member was in the boys’ bathroom two hours after that text inquiry to measure the bathroom to work up a bid. 


Is there a patron saint for DIY projects?


And, here was the boys’ bathroom five hours after Kenny and his two-person crew arrived on Saturday morning.

After the Demo Crew

Five hours, not months, weeks or even days. Five hours.
