Bathroom Renovation


What color did you paint the ceiling? Seems like it's not white. Regardless, the renovation looks great!

Thanks for the inspiration. I have a 12X30 room that was a family room but it is an addon off the side of the house and I think it makes a better master bedroom with plenty of room for a closet and mast bath. I am handy but not experienced in everything I will need to know and will look closely at your project and the info on this board to help me.

I enjoyed your pictcures and I like that mirror. Thanks again for your efforts.

Same color as the walls. I just told the guy at Sherwin Williams I wanted a predominantly gray color with a hint of blue.

Nice job. I agree with everyone else on the mirror -- great idea and looks great too.

Love that faucet, similar to the one I bought on Tuesday. Very nice blue paint, I'll be checking out that toilet at Lowe's this weekend.

The toilet was well worth it. It's very easy to clean (since the sides are squared-off) and uses very little water.

In your picture of the insulated walls it looks like you have a double vapor barrier. The paper backed insulation and also a poly sheet barrier. This will lead to a moisture problem.

Would you explain? What would the moisture problem be? Would the problem be between the paper and plastic or on one side of the paper/plastic junction?

That is exactly how I did it. I thought that was how I was supposed to do it...
From what I read (I thought), this would create a better vapor barrier - and since they (the paper and plastic sheet barrier) are next to one another that it would create one vapor barrier.

Thanks.

The problem occurs between the two vapor barriers. The space in between them can't "breathe" and condinsation will form.

The plastic vapor barrier is used when you install unfaced(no paper) insulation and when you use the faced insulation the paper is the vapor barrier.

How do I solve this? Do I have to rip out the drywall? Or can I poke some holes through the drywall in several sections of each stud to ensure that there is no air difference?

Faced paper is a vapor retarder
Plastic is a vapor barrier

You may or may not have a problem
I doubt you want to take it all apart

Is there insulation in every wall ?

I definitely don't want to take it apart. I did a sub-par job on the drywall - so if I have to take that apart, that might be okay, then I'll rehang the drywall and hire someone to mud it. But I definitely don't want to take out the shower surround tile....

Of the four walls in the bathroom, three are insulated. Those are the only walls in the entire house that are insulated.
