Off work for the next week completely remodeling bathroom


CB!
It looks good!
When you tile the walls: don't let the wall tiles sit "dead" on the floor -
if possible.

Regards!

-Did just that, thanks! I used the nippers too and to finish it off I grinded it off with the side of a spinning hole saw on a drill press. Fits like a glove.

rossfingal
-Thanks again!

-Slow going since I've been back at work. Got the walls almost all tiled up. Got the holes cut. Made a stand for the bathtub when tiling the ceiling. Made supports for the tile over the archway. I'm hoping to finish the tile tonight. Gonna be a late one...

Cheers!

Progress report...

Got the tile in the shower all done and grouted. Just have the lip of the wall and the outer wall left to tile. Since grouting the corners was a b***h, I came up with the idea (maybe I saw it somewhere before) of sticking the grout in a ziplock bag and squeezing it out of a corner I had cut. It made applying the grout to the corners way easier.

I finally finished the drywall work and applied a coat or primer and my first coat of paint. Since we're going a darker red, I had the primer tinted to help speed things along a bit.

Cheers!

Looking good. What lighting fixtures did you use inside the shower?

-I picked up a 6 pack of pot lights from Home Depot, UL rated for damp locations.

FINALLY finished the major tile work, still have to grout but whatever. So happy! The ball is starting to roll!

Here's where I stand...

Yeah, I've seen "perfect" tile work!
I don't know who did it!
(I do know, it wasn't me!)
I think it looks great!
I hope your "significant other" likes it!!

I've been curious as to why your tub is sort of framed in. Is that to help keep the water in?

-Yep, mainly to keep the water in. I think it looks cool too. Makes the shower feel more like a walk-in or something and plain isn't what we were going for.

-Thanks again for those compliments! It's been pretty slow going since I got the shower working, grouted and sealed. I took the weekend off and let my "significant other" clean and dust the rest of the house with the help of her mother and sister. Back at it today with some final painting of the ceiling. The painting took a bit longer because we changed our minds and decided to do the ceiling the same colour as the walls. Needed more paint also. Put a second coat of sealer on the grout in the shower today as well.

One problem I encountered was the fact that the shower arm is way too low, as I foolishly kept it the same height as it was before. The replacement is on the way.

Anyway, more trim to paint.
