Off work for the next week completely remodeling bathroom


Looking at the new plumbing you ran, appears the hot is on the wrong side now? Should aways be on the left.

-First I hear of this. I never really had a problem before, and all they had previously were shut off valves so I "kinda" just duplicated what they had there.

Jackofall1
-Good eye! I'll probably simply cross the braided lines to rectify this problem.

If you were being inspected crossing the braided lines would not pass. You really should fix it while its open, what's a few more sweat joints.

You should probably space the water supply lines a little farther apart -
where they go through the wall.
Also, remember metal "nail guards" on the face of the studs where your
supply lines and drain line go through the studs - don't want screws/nails
penetrating them!

Also, it looks like the supply lines for the tub/shower are inside the stud-wall.
Since it appears you have the room - consider "furring out" the wall -
(2 X 2's) and running the supply lines outside of the stud cavity.
Should probably be a minimum, 3 1/2 inches of insulation (uncompressed R-19) between the supply lines and the sheathing.
Don't forget "nail guards"! (Also, where your electric lines run through the studs)!

Don't forget "Fire-Stop" foam/caulk where your electric/plumbing lines
run through the top/bottom plates of the walls!
Sure looks like fun!!

-I'll see what I can do about it. It's just I have the hot crossing in front of the cold that complicates things.

rossfingal
-I agree, further apart and nail guards for sure!

I don't really have the room to build out the wall as I was planning on adding a shelf built into the the wall opposite the shower head, roughly 3-4 ft above the top edge of the tub.

I do want to add insulation behind that wall as it was slightly too noisy there before.

Fire Stop is also a new concept to me, thanks, I shall research it further.

I really appreciate all the help and input guys, thanks! I hope I'm good for supplies for a bit because today I have a new problem to face. I hope they get around to fixing this soon, my little trip the the hardware store this morning was pretty interesting. This is the only way in or out and there is only more of the wet stuff to come!

Off work for the next week completely remodeling bathroom

-I'll take a picture or two saturday when my help isn't here.

-Well, as you'll be able to see in the following picts, the floor was cut out, toilet drain moved away from the tub. The joist was braced where they had previously notched it out for the toilet drain. The floor was then braced due to the next joist being under the floor plate. The hole was then covered with the flange later installed.

Jackofall1 would be happy to see that I fixed the hot water for the bathroom sink, it's back on the left now. I also spaced them further apart.

The water supply to the toilet was a b***h because it had no shut off valve beneath the floor. No matter what tap I shut under the house or opened to relieve pressure water still trickled out the line. I was waiting and waiting for it to stop coming up checking everywhere for another tap to open or close when I remembered that ol' trick I learnt off of the net. Stuff a piece of bread in the pipe, solder everything up then squirt the bread out the tap when done. Worked like a charm!

I've since capped off the shower and turned the water back on and woohoo, approx 49 solder joints and not a single leak! Safe to start putting the drywall etc up! I even picked up some nail guards today since I was at Home Depot finally picking up my vanity. Good day!

Hi!
It's looking very good!
Don't forget to "strap down"/secure your water and waste lines to the framing.

I suggest that you add temporary stub outs to your shower and tub flanges. This allows you to test the work and makes installing the tub surround/tile easier.---Mike----

That short sister piest on the hacked up joist is a waste of time. It should be a longer piece, as long as you can make it. You may want to consider cross bracing of those joists to prep for tile to take some of the bounce out of the floor.

-Done!

mikeylikesit580
-It's a Maxx Newtown RH Acrylic tub, the rest is tile.

Jim F
-It's all sealed up and that was the biggest piece of 2x10 scrap that I had laying around. I do agree and it will happen tomorrow before we lay down any tile, more bracing is needed. Especially where one sheet meets the next.

-Here's some picts of the progress...
We managed to install that shelf I wanted onto the back wall. I love it! It's even shimmed very slightly to the front to allow for drainage. The wall in front of the tub is centred for the tub. I had such an issue with water damage there in the past that I didn't want any more issues again.
