Bathroom remodel

Project by EddieX posted 02-02-2012 11:43 PM 4875 views 1 time favorited 2 comments Add to Favorites Watch

I was called about remodeling a bathroom and had no idea what I was getting into. Older house, massive copper pipes, 3 layers of sheetrock under the floor, busted up joists…extended the bathroom from 5×6 to 5×8 1/2

Tore out everything, extended the bathroom about 2 feet, reframed, sheetrocked, added a skylight, replaced all copper with PVC and Pex, add main pocket door, change mini closet to pocket door also…and of course tile.

Also built a shower pan, and shower with 2 niches, no kerdi or any of that fancy crapola.

New electric which included a sensor so when you walk in, the vanity lights come on and a new fan/light combo on seperate switches.

They were going to have someone come in to finish off trim, sanding and paint.

Wow – a lot of work. Is that a basement below or the main floor? Working older homes can be a real challenge, especially when dealing with plumbing issues. Trying to get a good run is almost impossible. Where did you hide the vent stack?

I like the river rock shower floor. It goes well with the tile. Nice finished product.

-- No matter how many times I measure, I always forget the dimensions before I cut.

Main floor is under it, this is on the 2nd floor so trekking that stuff up there from the basement was a backbreaker.

The customer picked out everything except the 4×4 tiles and the mini pocket door for the closet. I always try to add some type of signature to every tile job. So threw that in with the 2 niches.

Venting and whatnot is actually tucked away in the short side wall there, it’s unused attic space. Not conventional but this space had some definite issues.
