In response to Re: tub removal
: I have removed countless tubs, most of them cast-iron, and have never used a sledge hammer. In fact if it were not for the condition of the finish, they could be reinstalled. Remove the wall finish and drywall to a point about three foot above the floor and one foot in front of the tub face. The remainder of the steps can be done by one person, but it is easier with two. Lift the back edge of the tub and roll it onto its face. Jockey the tub back and forth until one end is between the studs and then rotate the other end out into the room. Now you can put a blanket on the floor and slide the tub to the stairway. Tie a rope to the tub using the drain and overflow holes, and then slide it down the stairs.
