Basement bathroom project


Here are some pictures of the process building the bathroom in my basement finishing project. The help here has been invaluable, thanks all!

I still have to pick up a vanilty, mirror and light fixture. Oh and a door lock set.

Twice. It was 4 inch ceramic tile and I used the adhesive in a bucket they recommended. I used modified thinset this time (learned that here ). I must admit, I wasted some thinset. I didn't know it setup by time rather than drying . I bought an extra box of the tile and mixed all the boxes together before I started. Was afraid I would get half way through and notice a color change. Now I have an extra box of tile sitting in the garage. That will insure I never have a broken tile .

Thanks for the kudos. It's satisfying to look at something you did and think 'Not bad, not bad at all'.

Is that a Bootz steel tub? How do you like it so far? I'm still considering my options for my 2nd floor bathroom.

Jim, it is indeed. But the jury is still out. I haven't used it yet. But so far it has been fine as far as shape and from what I can tell strength. I took great pains to make sure the opening was square and plumb. When I set it in place, everything was square to the framing and level.
