Master Bath Remodel


Hey guys, just demo'ed my old mstr. bath due to a leaky shower pan, cut out oldrotted framing, sistered some new studs. I have layout & frame in for the new shower however, I am putting a new wall up on the back side of the shower between the toilet and the shower. I am a little confused. The furring strips in theceiling for the drywall are1 x3's.&for mynewwall framing Iam using 2x4's. Will the new drywall just butt against the outside of the new wall?.. Here are a few pics..

#1 It looks like you used unpressure lumber for a bottom plate, A really big no no when in direct contact with concrete.
#2 It looks like for some reason your ceiling joist are 24" not 16" in center.
Going to have to use 3/4 drywall on that ceiling.
Ceiling always need to go up first, walls are started at the top not the bottom, and there needs to be about a 1/2" gap at the bottom.
Looks like you missing a piece of 1 X 3.
Why would you add 2 X 4's? There not needed and will throw off all the nailers for the wall sheetrock.

I didnt use pt because I read alot & it stated that once pt dries it will shrink & crack the mortar then the tile... Also, the 2x4's are anywhere from 15 3/4" to 16-1/2" apart. House was built in 69. So what your saying is to install drywall ceiling first then frame new wall??

I added the 2x4's on the just that side for support for the new wall going up...

Not sure where you got the info about using pressure treated as a bottom plate but that's building 101 to never have wood in direct contact with concrete.
All the wall framing needs to go up before the ceilings go up.

I will have to find the stuff I read. Maybe I got it confused by reading so much. I'll change the framing for the mortar bed to pt. I have to just figure out the wall issue, today had a mental meltdown, & was about scrap the whole project..

I'm guessing what you were thinking of was a PT curb? I reframed our basement bathroom shower and originally framed the shower curb out of PT wood along with the bottom plates. While it's the right type of wood to use, the better alternative is to use bricks and mortar to create the shower curb (advised by folks on here), so I ripped up the curb and did it in brick & mortar. Now it's solid as a rock.

The curb was pt 2x4's, pre-pitch mortar, pvc liner, & mortar bed. It was really poor craftsmanship... Hence, the leak, rot, demo & remodel... Not sure how old it was but the house was built in 69.

Well. Busy this weekend finishing framing the dividing wall between the throne & shower, & the shower niche. I went with pt 2x4's for the curb, then regular kd for the framing. 2x6 blocking on bottom for the pvc liner. Roughed in new exhaust fan. Tomorrow going to install a 3 switch gangbox for light, fan, & outlet. Snapped a few pics... For my first remodel, I am happy withmy progress & results so far..
