The Update

Here's the current state of the bathroom floor.

I've cut the HardieBacker to fit all but the last patch under the toilet (which will also need a hole cut in it). I placed the marble threshold and it's held up by a chisel at the moment. Today, I spent the morning prying and tugging out wedged-in chunks of mortar.

Tomorrow I have to master getting that strip of caulk-y guck off the bathtub so I can make it look clean and new after it's tiled. And I need to learn how to cut the tile around the toilet flange.

Then I get to pull up the toilet and put down the backer board and threshold. Always something new to learn, another step I'd overlooked. How to cut tile in a circle? I have no idea. I will find a way, probably on YouTube.
