Bathroom remodel


We recently decided to do a full remodel of our first floor (and main) bathroom. We had another half bath in the basement but this is our only full, so it was a fun project to completely work on ourselves and figure out as we went along. The longest part was when we had the shower ripped apart and we were making extra trips to our gym to utilize their showers.

We ripped out tile floors, tiled walls, tiled shower, plaster walls, and lots of trim. We installed some new plumbing, a new vent pipe for the septic outlet, insulated, drywalled, concrete boarded the shower, primed, painted, and sanded. Tiled the shower, tiled the floor, installed new sink, toilet, and decorations. Man, it seems a lot easier to just type it all up than the project actually took… We still have to stain the wood trim for the window, door, storage area, and base board.


And of course, enjoy some pictures!

Bathroom remodel


Full demo finally done




Time to reconstruct!

Drywall




Tile work begins. My dad got me started as it has been years since I did any tile work. He did the first few rows and I took over and did all of the rest. I am pretty happy with and proud of how the accent tiles came out.











Floor installed.

Bathroom remodel


Grouted, primed, painted. Installed the toilet and sink. Installed some finishing touches.


Finished! (kind of)







We are so very happy with how everything turned out. It was a great experience for my wife and I as new homeowners; first major project: success!
