Downstairs Washroom Renovation


Got a look at the drain and vent pipe routing in the wall.

I'm no expert but I think it looks OK.
2" out of the floor from the toilet and shower to a 1-1/2" where the 1-1/4" from the sink joins in. The 1-1/2" then goes out and up into the upstairs bathroom wall where it joins into a 3" stack and out the roof.









Thanks for looking,

Downstairs Washroom Renovation


I got the toilet removed and the last of the drywall and insulation off.
I then removed the supply lines and cleaned and extended the vanity drain to its new location.





I got the wires and supply pipes for the vanity rerouted and roughed in.

Downstairs Washroom Renovation


I got the sub floor ripped out and started digging out the drain pipes from the shower and toilet.

The shower drain was 2". They had it reduced to 1-1/2'' ot the top of it.









Chunks of clay tile buried in the ground. I find stuff buried everywhere I dig on my property. I used the jackhammer to break them into bits to get them out.






Of coarse I didn't realize that I was at a "Y" intersection. I guess that's why all the pros around here tell us to hire experts. I sure hope I didn't crack anything. I will be having my buddy Kall come in to run the new pipes. He's a master plumber. He's calling a guy to scope all the drain pipes first.




Here's a pic showing all the pipes and where they are/were from and where they go.

New drain lines mocked up ready for gluing.

Thanks to the guys in the plumbing forum for answering questions regarding this run.

I got the pipes all glued up, tested for leaks and then layed down on a bed of sand.







I also got the concrete down today. Tomorrow I need to move a wall as the shower base is alot bigger than I first thought.

I finally lost it with the strapping on the block wall. It was at so many planes that the drywall screws would pop right thru if I left it. I got the strapping all torn down, insulation up and new 2x3 strapping started.







This shot shows a problem that would bite me when it was time for the 2 storey addition. Since the floor joists will be cut back to make room for a brick ledge and the new sill plate will be pretty much flush with the inside of the block, I had to rip out the top board from the window.

I finished the strapping over the foam board. I also got the plumbing done and the pipes insulated.





























Thanks for looking,

Yeah!

Finally feels like I'm getting somewhere.
After furring out the crooked walls for a bunch of hours I got the drywall done.

Start the mud tomorrow.

Mudding going slowly. I'm still using too much. I think I'll never learn....












I decided to cut the tiles while the mud was drying. I lucked out and got three walls with exactly half tiles. Not much cutting re'qd.

I got everything primed and painted.













Then the tile fun began......










By the time I got from one wall to the other , I was buttering the tiles about 1/2". Of coarse it helps to know what you're doing so next time I will know to use some self leveling. I decided to use some dry pack in this case. I just hope it wasn't a mistake...
















Tiles down and grouted along with shower and toilet.....

A couple more pics. Huge improvement on toilet space.....








After furring out the wall, I came about 1/2'' shy of code on the wall side of the toilet. No big deal though.

Downstairs Washroom Renovation


Vanity and towel bars installed temporarily. Tiles should finally be arriving soon. All these pics were taken about 7 weeks ago. I was going to wait til I was done but thought this thread was due for an update....
























The vanity mirror was too "thick" so I hung it over the toilet and used a mirror over the sink. The cupboard will be needed if 6 of us will be living off one washroom during the 2 story renovation....












New door, from the hallway side. You can see the light and fan switch back outside of the washroom....








I seen this casing design on a thread here and had to copy it. I think it came out great.....












The washroom is too small to take a full pic of the door even. I believe its about 36 square feet......

















I just got the window changed and the finish carpentry done this weekend....














Now, if the tiles ever arrive I can finish this project so I can move forward with my drawings and submit for permit.

Thanks for following along,
