When planning to remodel your bathroom

Especially in a house built with plaster and lathe, always be prepared to rip out at least half of what you were planning on remodeling.

Especially when some brain-dead numbnuts used FRIGGIN' DRYWALL in the shower enclosure and then covered it with FRIGGIN' MASONITE!

We've already made the trip to the Home Depot to buy greenboard and various other accoutrements that I hadn't planned on buying.  But at least it'll be done right this time.

Right for a shower enclosure would be cement board.

Cement board or what they call "greenboard", which is a mold and moisture resistant backing. That's what the Ragin' Mrs. and I picked up to put into this remodel.
