Bathroom renovation


You installed the tub the correct way, before drywall, as said by Green Giant. You can Red-guard over the cbu, otherwise it's supposed to have a plastic vapor barrier behind it. Did you run a separate breaker/wire for the tub's heater and motor? Or is there access from below?
CA tubs break into manageable sized chunks with 8-10 well placed hits in the corners, unless the purpose is to reuse it (green).
Be safe, G

I will use the redgard (that stuff is expensive) and yes we are putting in a dedicated 15 amp GFI circuit for the tub. (hubby is a journeyman electrition) I am not doing everything right and by the book but I am sure it will all be ok in the end. thanks everyone for taking interest in my little bathroom reno.

Bathroom renovation


We have most of the drywall done and ready to prime and paint we did a no no on the flooring. We didn't want to tear up all the hardwood so we put 1/4 outdoor rated plywood on the floor and today we are putting the Ditra underlayment down and then tiling later tonight so that it can cure over night and ready for grout tomorrow. I am very ready for the batroom to be done. Because we only have one bathroom it has been just a nightmare. I had to go to the laundromat to do laundry as the laundry room is getting the flooring done too. We have had use of the bath and toilet most of the time. I know we would have been done if we didnt re do the plumbing in the whole house. I took more pics later on today. Its starting to look like a bathroom again.
