Remodeling a bathroom in a historic home involves quite a bit more than our typical renovations. This particular Hillsborough, NC home, built in the 1700s, has been in the family for generations. The last renovation occurred in the 1960’s so we had our work cut out for us. Luckily, Ramses, the UNC mascot, was in the backyard supervising our work along the way!
First, we gutted the bathroom down to the studs and replaced a good portion of the cast iron and steel galvanized plumbing that went from the upstairs bathroom down to the downstairs bathroom, down more into the crawlspace, and finally, all the way out to the main water line. After replacing the plumbing lines, we added new insulation, sheetrock, and electrical. After all that, we finished the Hillsborough bathroom remodel off with all your typical bells and whistles: a new vanity, shower, toilet, flooring, painting, and finishings.
