KMG, I've got the exact same task ahead of me next month. Ran out of money on a reno, and now need to do the guest bath ourselves.

The new tub install + accompanying tile surround scare me the most. Any tips? What are your "wish somebody would have told me _______ " thoughts?

PS - I'm going to try the build in shampoo shelf too, yours ended up looking great.

Nice job 'K'
Bathrooms are my next indoor step. Any words of wisdom ("Let It Be" is NOT an option)?

My honest opion gather as much info before you start

Also take everything to studs as you don't know what you will find

I want to say 3 months,and most of that was driving to buy stuff as there's nothing here.

It's like a big puzzle everything has to go together

The Tub install was easy,I used an acrylic tub but removed a old cast iron that i carryied by myself to the bin

The biggest problem and time was removing the old subfloor and I mean removing it,I took the old OSB right to the studs and installed blocking with my 3/4 T&G plywood.

The floor was rotten and had so many squeeks

I had over 20 more pictures of everything,but the fan on that computer is dead.

Really just take your time,if something doesn't seem right it's not

They have a special fabric that you can put between the studs and your copper pipe while you are sweating it. It prevents your house from burning down. I'd recommend those next time. :p

You did a great job! I bet it's nice to be done with it.

I like the oil rubbed bronze fixtures.

Great job ! Your bath looks to have the same lay out as mine. Did you replace the tub? I plan to replace mine but i have to demo the wall in front of the tub as the existing tub is way small. 30 x 58.
