« Part 1: Demolition Part 2 of Basement Bathroom series Part 3: Slowly closing on completion. »

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

Here’s where I started, with lovely flower tiles, holes in the wall, rusted tub, poor electrical, vinyl over sticky tile flooring, etc etc etc.

Around here I was just about done all the demolition work, and went about repairing and replacing the plumbing. 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, construction adhesive and a sh*tload of deck screws should keep the floor stable enough.

Next came the jetted tub, it went in surprisingly easy.

Cement board and roughed in relaxation seat behind the tub.

Putting in a slate floor over electric radiant heat grid.

It’s coming along nicely. You started with a lot nicer looking bath than I had. My fiberglass shower stall had a metal roof that was rusty and grimey. A Bat Heaven.
