Tub material and window questions
We just bought ourselves a small (940 sf) fixer that needs a gut job (woo hoo! another project!). Bathroom will be first. Here's what we're starting with:
We're pulling out everything and replacing the rotted subfloor and 1920 plumbing, then putting it back together and making it pretty. Note that this is a house that when fixed will be worth $60K or so, so we want to make it look nice (I will be living here for a year or so) and stay period as much as possible, but we're not spending a fortune.
Question #1: Which is better for a tub: acrylic or enameled steel? Pros and cons of each?
Question #2: We could just cover up the window, but if we keep it, what's the best way to waterproof it? Mr. Weedy saw a made-for-shower window at Lowe's that's vinyl with glass blocks inset. Other things to consider?
