Also, I have two low voltage leads from removing my wall radio. How do I take care of this safe/by following code?

I tried tucking them away as nicely as possible but I don't think that will do it.

If you're gonna remove them just find the source and take them out. If keeping them, remove the staples to make room for some new lumber. The new sister doesn't have to be a 2x4.

Ok yes but even with the new sister stud, what should I do with the wires if I'm keeping them? I just staple them as is but to the new sister stud?

It looked fine as it was, but ok an extra stud is good. Did the drywall get messes up much?

Advice on Bathroom Remodel


No the drywall on the other side didn't get damaged. When I pulled the wood out, it ripped the drywall screws right out of the drywall without any damage so I was lucky. Then I just added two new studs to be able to fasten the wood brace for the shower arm that's going to be 76" high, as per Moen's installation instructions.

Advice on Bathroom Remodel


We had a friend come by that is a carpenter and he was telling me that the tub doesn't need to be waterproofed because the tile and grout don't let the water in.

I'm not sure if it has to do with the fact that he's 70 something years old and hasn't gotten with the times...

He was even telling me that I can use regular drywall behind the shower tiles and don't need to plaster the joints with drywall compound because the tiles will be over them.

Advice on Bathroom Remodel


Should I install a bathtub door or curtain on a rod?

Edit: I guess that's just preference so nevermind, although your comments are still welcome.

I prefer a curtain. Doors make it harder to clean the tub and the doors themselves need to be cleaned. If anyone in your takes baths, the doors make kind of a confining industrial atmosphere in my opinion. Better to move the curtain out of the way

Just a suggestion, I would install a curved curtain rod. It allows you more room when showering, and keeps the curtain away from you. Just a suggestion....

Man, you're easy to convince.

I agree, go with a nice curtain set. It'll look much nicer and you may want to have a few so you can change the color theme with the seasons. Curved rod is nice, but may not look the best with some of the fancy outer drape curtain.

Haha yea, but it helps knowing the doors start at 200$ and the curtain would be far cheaper

A curtain is also easier to install and doesnt require me to add framing that would be used to fasten the door to
