First bathroom remodel, need some assistance...


This will be my first "major" bathroom remodel project. I am replacing the tile around the tub & replacing it with a different updated tile color. Once this tub job is complete, I plan on tearing out the plastic wall shower & replacing it with tile up the walls & a new glass door (which I am sure I will need a lot of help along the way with this job!). The one upside to all of this is that I have done numerous diy tile floors throughout my house, so I have a good experience with laying tile. I joined the site for assistance in helping me get through these projects & answering questions on things I have no idea about. Please be patient with me since I am just a diy'er & my lack of knowledge & terminology.

Here is a pic of the areas that I am going to be working on...



Here is what I am left with after the old tile tear-out this morning...





The questions I have at this point are....
1. How do I take the bathtub water spout off? (I will be replacing the fixtures)
2. Do I have to replace the old sheet rock with new? I gurred it up in a few places during the tear-out, but overall it is still in good condition?
3. Do I use some sort of water barrier before installing tile around the tub? If so, what kind?
4. Any other helpful pointers are greatly appreciated.

THANKS

The Spout---look under the spout near the tile---if there is an opening--see if there is a screw--if so you need an Allen wrench to loosen that screw and the spout will pull right off the pipe--

If no hole and screw? Then that one is screwed on---treat it like a big light bulb and unscrew it--

To tile it ----you need to remove the old drywall up about 6 feet---then ,after repairing an out of flat 2x4s and replacing the tub mixer--you will want to add tile backer board---

Drywall of any kind should not be used in a wet area---

Paint on waterproofing might be a good idea also---

That tub looks like a deck mount---without a water shedding wall flange---if so---no shower head for you---unless you change the tub----let us know if I am right.

Duh--I just noticed there is a separate shower---you could leave the drywall---except for the area right above the tub--perhaps 32 or 36 inches up--there use the cement backer board.

I also noticed that is a delta mixing valve---if you have trouble getting the spout off,come back---Newer Deltas are a bit different---
