My bathroom remodel


Here's some photos of my evening and weekend project. I totally gutted my main bathroom, which was stuck in the 1980's.

Tons of water damage. I could stick my finger through the studs and the sole plate of the exterior wall, so all of it was re-framed.

Yes, that's mold. Pretty much expected that.

There was 1/2" plywood and 1/4" wonderboard under the tile. Not good. All of that came out.

Went from a peach colored tub to a walk-in shower. Here's the mud pan and the waterproofed wonderboard in the shower.

The daunting task of tiling this thing with natural slate begins...

Sealing the slate with an enhancing sealer makes a big difference and takes the dull look right off! This is a "wet look" sealer. The $85/quart price is simply insulting though!

Lots more to come. I still have to grout, seal again, paint, build drawers and overhead cabinets, trim, veneer and hang a door, build cabinet doors, install the shower door, mirror, and finish electrical.

Where to start???
