Basement Bathroom Reno, Part 2 - Demolition

If you've watched any home renovation shows on TV, you know that the first day of activity is the most spectacular. That's how it was for us. In one day we went from our "before" status to... well... studs and concrete.

Basically, it looked like this:

The wall with the door and the light switches.
Exterior wall and the wall where the toilet and sink used to be.
Remember in the "before" pictures where I said that the ceiling came halfway down the window? Here's proof.  
There used to be a wall, here, with the sink and shower build-out in it. The washer and dryer are under the plastic sheeting in the laundry room.

This is the hole above which the shower used to sit. You know, the drain which the shower was never connected to.

Hmm... What do you think? Is this better or worse than the old floor tile?
The view from the laundry room back into the bathroom. 
The hole under the shower eventually extended...
...into the laundry room. We won't talk about how many times I almost stepped into this part of the hole while walking in to do laundry.

Wow! Looking forward (as I'm sure you are, too) the "after" pictures!
