Starting to lay out the bathroom to see how it may look... Thinking about going with a curbless linear drain for the shower. Thoughts on that?

Also, any tricks for putting a door on an angle?

Hello Jeff,

Thanks for making this thread. It is very useful and glad to see that you are making process.

If you have time I have a quick question for you.
How did you remove the old cement archors from the previous framing?

Thanks,
Derek

Hi Derek!

Are you referring to the shanks they used to secure the firring strips to the block wall? If so, I use a long crowbar.

Did you tear down that ceiling just to put in the light?

No, all of this drywall is coming down anyway, I'm in the middle of wiring up a 3-way and this light will be part of it. So I had to knock down this ceiling and the wall to the right (which you can kind of see) for the new switch.

The original lights were contractor grade and powered by a set of outlets from the middle floor (different circuit). So I'm changing all that now.

Special thanks to Hammerlane for helping me with the 3-way switch!

1. 1-3 of 4 lights on 3-way switch (top and bottom of stairs)
2. Looking down from a few steps up.
3. Last of the 4 lights on the 3 way.
4. Switch at the top of the stairs leading to the basement.

All drywall will be coming down in the stairwell, leaving it up until I get all the drywall in so I don't chip the edges.
