Noob bathroom remodel


I would also suggest "nail plates" in front of those Pex lines.

I"ll put nail plates everywhere.

I'm going to assume the gas lines were up to code when the house was built. Plus that fitting is sort of accessible (because of the panel that opens giving access to the junction box) and there have to be other fittings in the house which are totally inaccessible.

re green board. Damn. I guess I should pull it out. that will be painful but it would really stink if I had to redo this in 2 years. Instead of running more joists I guess I could run cross members between the joists? I put some in but only at the joints, every 4'.

ADDED: We live in a very dry climate but are paranoid about mold because my wife is pretty allergic. There is another cross member supporting the fan that I could find. I'm wondering if maybe we could get by leaving it up?

You would not be the first person to use greenboard on the ceiling with 16" centers and leave it up. Having it inspected? Greenboard is not as strong as regular sheetrock, it tends to sag on 16" centers. Up to you. Paperless drywall would have been a better choice, although it's a little more work to finish.

I finally yanked the one in the shower, installed two nailers running parallel to the joists and then put a new sheet back in. I am not going to do that in the rest of the bathroom. My logic is that the greenboard in the shower is the most likely to fail because of the moisture and the hardest to replace so its better to do it now.
