Understanding Industrial Equipment and Our Manufacturing Legacy

I'm Sandra Adams, a blogger and enthusiast of many eclectic targets, including pottery and industrial equipment and supplies. I've traced my family tree as far back as I can go and there is not one moment where my family hasn't been involved in manufacturing. My dad worked as a mechanic repairing industrial machinery and if it wasn't for me, he wouldn't have anyone to pass down his knowledge to. I've always wanted to know what my dad was up to, so I'd ask him what he did everyday. I've always been really curious and this has lead me to develop a really strong understanding of industrial equipment. My love for industrial equipment hasn't waned and now I feel like sharing this knowledge with others. I've created this blog for this exact purpose.

Master Bathroom Remodel: Tips For Phase 1 Of The Project


Your master bathroom is the first place you visit after your alarm clock rings and it's the last place you visit right before you turn in for the night. Since your master bathroom is such an important part of your daily life, it makes sense that it should be a space that you actually enjoy spending time in.

If this space is old, outdated, and looks like it would have fit nicely in the home of the Brady Bunch, you probably don't feel overjoyed when you enter it (unless you really dig the 70s retro look). Turn that outdated space into the bathroom of your dreams.

Here's a look at what you'll need to do in order to successfully prepare for the first phase of your bathroom remodel project: getting ready.

Hire a Contractor

Unless you know you are an expert plumber, electrician, and tile installer, the first thing you're going to want to do is employ the help of a licensed and insured contractor. This professional will provide you will oversee your project and will provide you with access to other industry experts you'll need to get the job done.

Planning the Design

Together, you and your contractor can plan the design of your new master bathroom. You probably already have an idea in mind, but you may want to go through some design magazines to really know what you want to achieve.

Once you and your contractor have a firm idea about the design and layout of the bathroom, head to a home supply store together so that you can choose the elements you want to include in the space; the sink, vanity, tub, tiles, etc.

Prepare for Demo

Now it's time to get ready for demolition. Your contractor will direct the process; however, you may want to lend a hand. How can you help? There are several ways, including:

  • Contact a dumpster rental service so that there is a place to properly dispose of the materials that will be removed from the bathroom.
  • Ensure that the area is easy access to the space for your contractor and all other professionals who will be working on the job.
  • Get your hands dirty. Let your contractor know that you want to be involved in the demo. Get suited up with goggles, a face mask and protective gloves and get in there and start removing tiles, pulling out the vanity and helping in any other way that you can.

With these tips in mind, you will be well on your way to completing phase 1 of your remodel project and achieving the master bathroom of your dreams.
