I'm in the process of redoing my grandmothers bathroom...whoever first built it didn't know to use greenboard for the Sheetrock and she had an awful smell and some black mold behind her drywall...that being said she said if I was redoing the drywall I might as well put in a new vanity and sink and who knows she might be having me do her tile floor and shower next lol

Ive renovated nearly 75% of the home with some of the most beautiful Old Growth Hardwoods and much of the framing is twice used.

All my reno's have re-purposed materials, 100% of them have some or much! Sometimes I sit on the product for years before its used but it always gets used and nobody looking at the finished product would be the wiser unless I told them! One of my larger projects, the kitchen was a byproduct of our University Library renovation. They smashed tons of 50 year old white oak built in shelving units and I took home 3 PU truckloads of broken cabinet grade lumber. 4 years later, I remilled it all and built from scratch one of the most beautiful custom kitchens I could have imagined. Its obviously not new oak, its got some character but its got flake and tiger waves you will never find in new quick growth oak and its as hard as rock maple! The cabinets are 100% oak backs, sides, shelves and drawers and fit in my old home like a glove.

That same library provided some of the most beautiful treads for my New addition/ staircase from the rare book collection shelves!
My girlfriends dad used cabinets that the school he works at was throwing out to redo his kitchen..gotta say it doesn't look half bad for a lab rooms glass cabinets lol

Just finished 11.22.63, was a pretty good book. As with all King's books, there is a lot packed in there and I'll be going through it again.

The Stand is next for me, 47+ hours of audio. Actually plan on downloading it tomorrow some time.

Sounds just like what happened to me at the camp I work/live at. The girls half of the shower house was just like what you described so we stripped it to the studs and rebuilt it including a pretty nice tile job on the floor and shower stall walls. We will have everything finished up in the next two weeks including a new ventilation system and inline pump to boost water pressure coming from our clear well system on the other side of the property.

I'll have to post some pics of my Dad's house. He spent over 20 years remodeling it from a generic tract home into a work of art that would look right at home on the pages of Sunset magazine (do any of you know Sunset?) or Architectural Digest. Lots of "picker" elements worked into it. The front porch is made from old growth redwood timbers I salvaged from a Gold Rush era building that was being torn down in San Francisco. When Dad was working with it he found a couple of musket balls some .45 miniball and .30 cal bullets. I still have them somewhere around here. We added a semi-floating archway made out of leftover 2" copper pipe that his neighbor who is a steamfitter salvaged from a big job he did at Pelican Bay ()

I'll take some pics of it.
