Basement Bathroom #2: Progress report

03-07-2009 11:00 PM by BeachedBones | 3 comments »

Here’s some progress pictures. Hopefully I can get the photos to work.

Now the hot water line actually goes to the Hot side of the (new) mixing valve. Novel concept eh? New sub-floor, two layers of 3/4 ply, cement board,...

Basement Renovation #1: How the project came to be

This was great for a while, but one year after we moved into our house our region had a storm that dumped 13” of rain in 24 hours. The main playroom was soaked through.

The drains were just completed and the tile has been down for a while, but since the room was empty i...
