This is the way the room looked when we started tearing into it. In this image the floor has been removed where the plumbing needs to be located, including a sewage ejector pit, and drain for a tub, toilet, and sink. Note the conveniently placed drain pipe on the back wall that runs out into the septic tank in the front yard. What better spot for a sewage ejector pit than right under the drain pipe?
The tub successfully fit where it was intended.
Meanwhile, behind the tub, the sewage ejector was partially plumbed to pump into the existing drain. At this point, the project was starting to resemble a bathroom, and our hope of eventually enjoying its conveniences was growing stronger. Next time we'll lay out more of the subsequent steps in this project -- you won't want to miss it!
