I’m starting big with the most complicated, most expensive, most functionally significant portion of the remodel – replacing the shower faucet. As I mentioned in a previous post , the tub/shower handles have been a real pain for some time.

For that, I need a plumber… and that’s why this will be the most expensive portion of the remodel.
