The new bathroom


Excellent, it looks great and I think the combination of tile/vanity styles looks good together.

So does she know at all?

Well done! And I have taken a year to reinstall my outlet covers after painting.

The new bathroom


Project looks great. I just finished gutting my 5x8 bathroom yesterday. Tub comes out tomorrow, running electrical installing vent fan and new lighting as well tomorrow.

How easy/difficult was installing the new tub along with the drain and waster overflow pipes? The plumbing for the tub is the only part of this project I am a bit apprehensive about. All other electrical, plumbing for the toilet, mixing valves for shower, and supply lines for sink I am confortable with. I have off work starting tomorrow until 1/2...so the plan in so hit it hard everyday and hopefully be able to use my toilet and shower by next week. Since I only have one bathroom...time is of the essence.

Great work on your bathroom!

The new bathroom


The tub plumbing is pretty simple, I bought a kit for $17 from Home Depot, measure measure measure, then cut and dry fit. I actually Valle the tub manufacturer and they gave me all the measurements. Then just make sure the gaskets are on correctly.

I actually had more problems plumbing my vanity drain than my tub. Just tackle one thing at a time.

For my next project I think I'm going to use the kerdi board instead of membrane... Well, it'll come down to the price I guess.

The new bathroom


Here are a couple photos of the finished product, grouted and done.




Just starting to get organized for the en suite. This project will be more difficult. The current en suite has a stand up shower, the shower is horrible and small, framed in with no glass and makes the bathroom appear much smaller than it actually is. I want to take the one wall of the shower out, move the plumbing to an interior wall, and replace the removed wall with a glass panel. I'm sure I'm horrible at describing what I want to do, pics will follow and it will make more sense.

I've been impressed with the shark bite fittings so far. I know it's only been a few months but I haven't had a problem. Actually this spring when I went to turn on the outside faucets I noticed that one of the shut off valves inside the home was leaking very badly, so I replaced it with a shark bite one. This is nice because I am able to see it, it's been a few weeks and not a sign of water - which is what I expected.

I did have some problems with my new bathroom. As you know I used the schluter stuff on the floor when I re-tiled it, I suspect this brought the floor height up about 1/4". When I reinstalled the toilet I used a standard sized wax gasket. This gasket did not seal properly, and I only noticed it when I was playing with my daughter in the living room. A very small, very faint, water stain was starting in my living room ceiling. First thing I thought was that the shark bit fittings were failing, and I was mad. I measured where the stain was and checked the bathroom, all signs pointed to the toilet. When I removed the toilet it was wet around the drain. I got the larger size gasket and haven't had any further issues. The water stain is only noticeable if it's pointed out - I'll likely just touch this up with paint. I did drill a small hole in the ceiling, no water was present so I'm not overly concerned.
