DIY'er new to forum


Hello, all. Just here to say hi and share my project. Very cool site and iPod App. I am not at all a pro, but desperately try my best to fulfill HoneyDo requests. What I have learned has mostly been through the experience of doing it, with a healthy bit of guidance from my father, a retired journeyman, and lots of reading and Internet research. That's pretty much it as far as introductions. Well, if anyone would like to critique a bathroom project, then read on. This is a small, 4-wall bathroom, one of which is to the home's exterior.
I have it gutted down to the studs and subfloor. Didn't plan on taking it down that far but the tile removal wasn't kind to the Sheetrock. Glad I did, though, as I found some black mold along the inside of the Sheetrock along the bottom of the window frame. This is what I have done so far:
Torn down all walls and ceiling.
Pulled out apron tub (no ledger behind it!), toilet, and sink.
Reframed window, hung new replacement one, sealed outside, and foam insulated around sides.
Tore up old floor tile, wonderboard substrate and slc (floor is now down to plywood subfloor).

What I believe I have to do:

Replace old, faced insulation with unfaced insulation.
Place 1/2" hardieboard on floor in modified thinset, wall to wall.
Replace faced insulation with unfaced.
Hang Hardieboard on walls and ceiling. Drop tub in (with ledger) and install hardieboard above tub (run bead of caulk along tub flange).
Cement-tape and mortar joints.
Red Guard all surfaces.
Tile.

Any critique/criticism would be greatly appreciated!
