How Much Value You Will Get From Updated Bathrooms

My family and I moved to a really cool, 45 year-old house two years ago.  The house had a kitchen that was updated 25 years ago, and the bathrooms were the original baths from when the house was built.

We updated the kitchen when we moved into the house, and we planned to update the bathrooms until we found out that the back foundation wall needed a major repair to keep from caving-in.

Well we just had all three baths remodeled.  

The photos below will take you behind the scenes so you can see the challengs we tackled during the remodeling.

The old rotten subfloor was replaced with new plywood subfloor that was water-proofed before the new tile was installed.

 New concrete wallboard was installed around the tub, and new plywood replaced the rotted plywood subfloor beneath the bath tub.  A shiny new tub was installed.
