damaged subfloor by tub


Now that I am prettty well ready to put the new subflooring section in and lay down some Hardy Board, I am wondering what to do about the tub.

Here is a pic of the overall job (including all I cut back that wasn't necessary) and a couple of close ups of the spot. Am I being penny wise and pound foolish by not calling in some pros and having the tub pulled or is it good enought to remove the bad wood up to the tub and a couple of inches under it with a chissel?

You will be fine patching that and not removing the tub----

When the time comes for a complete remodel --then do the tub----

With that for encouragement, I went and looked under the last tile, which was removed in the last photos. Whoopee! That section of the bottom of th tub is pretty well open and I can cut back under the tub a bit and remove any suspect wood.

It will be a little tight with that block running from joist to joist in the way, but I don't want to disturb it.
