Order of Operations


Hi all,

I am new to the site and to owning/remodeling a home. I have helped my father with a variety of projects and have done the laminate, trim and painting in my upstairs own my own and would consider myself relatively handy. I am looking to remodel my main bathroom. At this point I'm pretty confident with a little additional information and help from my father in law (with electrical) I can do just about everything my self.

My question is what is the order of process when remodeling a bathroom?

We are planning to gut everything (save the ceiling). So that means we are putting in:

1.tub
2.sink
3.cabinet
4.toilet
5.floor tile
6.shower tile
7.drywall/taping
8.fan/vent
9.electrical (in the ceiling want to move it to the wall)
10.trim/baseboard
11.paint

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Lead test if home is older than late 80's
Asbestos test if you have popcorn ceiling
Demo utilizing safe methods to handle the above if needed
Address water damage
Rough plumbing, including all new shutoffs for all fixtures
Rough electrical, moving any of it, and making sure outlets are GFI
Tub, set properly
Drywall/cement backer board
Tape drywall
Waterproofing membrane/coating for backer board
Tile, tile, and more tile.
Grout/sealing grout
Paint
Cabinetry
Prepainted trim.
Electrical fixtures
Plumbing trim and fixtures
Shower curtain,curtain rods, etc
Touchup

Be sure to research how to properly waterproof your tub/shower. And how to make sure you have the proper support for the tile floors so they don't crack.

1) Make a plan.
2) Purchase all parts and materials needed to complete the job.
3) Gut & discard all materials from the destruction and gutting of the room.
4) Fix any structure that is rotted, along with mold remediation.
5) Replace all plumbing that needs to be done.
6) Do any HVAC work.
7) Pull Electrical that needs to be pulled, for lighting & outlets.
8) Put back tub.
9) Put up Drywall.
10) Tape & Mud Drywall.
11) Prime & Paint Drywall.
12) Lay down Tile Underlayment (DurRock or DensShield).
13) Lay Tile.
14) Put in Vanity.
15) Sit back and enjoy the love of your labor and hard work.

All of this if you have the time, can be done from start to finish in three weeks max. If you are planning on doing it on weekends and after work, probably six weeks.

All of the above---plus these.

check the electrical codes--a 20 amp dedicated circuit may be needed.

Check floor deflection if tile will be used on the floor.(We can help with the calculations)


When the tub is installed--add (sister) new 2x4s as needed to insure that the walls are flat---add studs where the shower door will be installed---add blocking for safety grab rails.

What does lead testing mean? I've never heard of that? I'm assuming it's for paints.

oh'mike, I gave up on that. With a to the studs gut, I just wrap the bathroom with plywood from about 18" to 66" above the floor. Inlet into the studs and screwed and glued, it guarantee's when you go to hang something within that range, it will have wood behind it.

Makes adding additional safety bars in the future a snap. You don't have towel bars pulling out the drywall anchors, etc.

firsttimer - great question this is exactly what I am facing on a remodel bathroom project
live oak, gregzoll & o'mike I have question on drywall - I have gutted bathroom so for areas that will have new tile placed on walls do I need drywall board or do I just hang Durock / DenShield products in those wall areas?
