Almost as dangerous as “overkill engineering”

Nope, floor is far from good

Haven't yet decided if I'm refinishing the original pieces or building custom. I'll most likely be keeping the original layout so that definitely makes using the stock stuff attractive. But, as much as I like originality there's really nothing special about a 40 year old bathroom IMHO.

For sure the toilet is being replaced, had to cut it off.... Might do a new counter and sink but refinish the tub since I haven't seen any compelling alternatives.

There's kinda a fiberglass/plastic piece that the wallpaper is printed on, that probably needs to be replaced since it's what the tub was riveted to when it was installed.

I have two tall narrow metal cabinets on either side of the door that take up about 10" of space inside the bathroom. I'm thinking of removing them and using them on either side of the desk I'm planning to build across from the gaucho that will be moving from the front to the side to make a double bed. I feel like it will make the bathroom more spacious and comfortable for us.

But first the floor. I'm stopped for a month as I will be traveling for work but when I get back that's the first order of business. That and pulling the belly pan off to remove the rest of the fiberglass insulation and rat poop

Think about putting in a cork floor. We had to repair the subfloor of our 1988 excella and used cork afterwards. It's cheap, light weight, easy to install and maintain,and comes in a variety of shades and patterns.

Yes, fresh water intake. Seems like they all crack at the nipple and let water run onto the floor. Also I think people overfill their tanks which also causes problems.
