Bathroom Havoc

I got a new vanity for Christmas for a great deal from a lady on Craiglist. (It will be painted)

My original intention was to remove the old vanity that was completely worthless as a double vanity because barely one person could fit in the bathroom with where everything was positioned.

But after I started ripping up everything and moving the clawfoot tub back and forth because it's 30" wide and we have a 24" door (yay me). But I realized, the tub will be awesome where the double vanity used to be and all I would need to do is just move the drain... With putting the  vanity in the new spot, I would have to move the drain, and hot and cold water.

And the sink will go right next to the toilet (not moving the toilet.. not that crazy). But the floors are all different materials, not level, the tile was glued down, I think, but it didn't hold at all.  I will be giving away all the salvaged perfectly whole tiles on craigslist. Hopefully someone will want them, LOL. They are heavy and I don't want to take them to the dump. 

In the mean time, the floor are dry rot and will be entirely replaced tomorrow (by yours truely) and we will be installing new vinyl.  And since the budget is TIGHT (like jeggins tight), the walls wont be finished til next month.  But I just want to get the tub and toilet installed again, so the bathroom at least functions! 

I'm so excited! I'll post pictures of the tub and floor when we get it in!
