part of the floor. After pulling out the tub and drywall near the tub we found the bottom of the studs in the dividing wall we rotted at the bottom as well. So, replaced the floor, replaced the rotted studs, new tub. Went over the floor with 1/2” backer board and all the way around the room up to 40”. Laid the tile floor, tiled the tub area and up to chair rail height around the room. Reused the vanity, painted to tie into the tile accents and laid 12×12 granite tiles on the vanity. New medicine cabinet a few fixtures and done.

6 months on the weekends!!! Thank heaven it was a spare bathroom.

Thanks to all for the help as I worked through this project.

It started after my sons moved out and the floor around one corner of the tub was weak. After we pulled back the vinyl that was there, the plywood was rotted. We decided to gut the 40year old bathroom and replace the bad part of the floor. After pulling out the tub and drywall near the tub we found the bottom of the studs in the dividing wall we rotted at the bottom as well. So, replaced the floor, replaced the rotted studs, new tub. Went over the floor with 1/2” backer board and all the way around the room up to 40”. Laid the tile floor, tiled the tub area and up to chair rail height around the room.

DustyDave, Good job. Now you can sit and enjoy it . . . uh . . . well, I guess you can sit and enjoy in more than one way now!! Nothing like enjoying the fruits of one’s own labor. And you were fortunate to have two baths! I did mine on 03, full gut and rebuild . . . sent my wife to NYC and the moment she got on the plane, whamo with the hammers. By time she got back a week later we only had to spend two nights in a hotel before the sink and commode were operational.
Any more projects on your radar?
