Another Bath remodel


I took on remodeling our master bath a few months ago. It all started about a year ago when I was looking at tubs. I found one that me and the misses liked and it went form there. Ended up finding one similar for a steal on ebay and couldnt pass it up. So it was the tub that kick started this whole journey. At times it seemed to be a never ending uphill battle. I only had help when the tub needed to be taken in and out for fitment, and then final install. Of course the doggies were there with me the whole time.

Re: Another Bath remodel


The bathroom is 9' wide and 10' long, it had double sinks a jetted tub and a 3' X 3' stall shower. We arent the original owners of this house, and didnt like the idea of "stewing" in someonle else's tub water. We lived here for 3 years and never used that giant jetted tub. Before the remodel here's what it looked like.

Re: Another Bath remodel


I was eyeballing a tub on ebay, and everyday I would get up and look at it. Well we had gone a little get away for the weekend and when we came back I checked on it, and was surprised to see the seller wanted almost double the original price. I panicked. I contacted the seller and asked why the price had spiked, he said "your free to make me a offer" so being worried about waiting too long, and having the price remain so high. I offered the original price which included shipping. The seller accepted my offer and the tub was on its way. The journey begins. About 2 weeks later my new tub showed up, and it was so shiny!

Re: Another Bath remodel


I was looking at new vanities, and boy are those overpriced! I thought I would maybe modify the original to fit my needs. I needed a "custom" size 40" I couldnt see spending 1000-1500 for a new one. The original vanity was 3 separate cabinets so I cut one down and made drawers from the extra cabinet. I left the original middle 3 drawer section intact. $aved $ome money here!

Re: Another Bath remodel


By the way the original granite vanity top was extremely heavy. If you have one your removing get help. Mine was about 300#'s Luckily all I did was lift it off and place it on a rolling dolly to remove it. Had my son help me get it out to the garage ( he struggled)

Re: Another Bath remodel


My plan for the bathroom is this. Delete the double sink vanity, go with single sink. We dont use the bathroom sink at the same time so its a waste of space for us. Move the toilet to where the second sink was about 3 and a half feet. Build a his -n- hers shower, and install a badass copper soaking tub where the funky jetted used to be. Tile everywhere.

Begin cutting open the sub floor to reposition the plumbing.

Re: Another Bath remodel


Now that all the plumbing is done its time to button up the sub floor. Im lowering the sub floor in the shower so I can pack a pre sloped pan that gets waterproofed for my drain body with weep holes.

After the pre slope cures, it gets waterproofed, the shower pan gets packed on top of that. Once the shower pan cures it gets waterproofed as well.



Floated the floor, I got lucky because nothing is built level or square. My bathroom floor has a slight pitch towards the shower about 1/16" per foot. Eventually the floor and walls will be waterproofed before I tile.

Re: Another Bath remodel


I had to float my floor so I could get the correct height on my shower pan slope.

Re: Another Bath remodel


Now that the pre slope is cured (7 days) I will detail my corners, and 90* angles along with a area over the drain assembly. I am using eternabond tape it is extremely sticky on one side and has fabric on the other.The big box home improvement stores carry a similar item its in the roofing section its a small roll 6" wide and about 6" around. Its perfect for liquid applied waterproofing. The tape allows corners to move a bit and the coating wont crack there (everything will stay sealed up)



I also precut some reinforcement fabric that gets applied to the liquid waterproofing on the transition from floor to shower pan along the "joint". and over the 90* on the exposed floor joist
