Re: Historic home tiny bath remodel!


If we are on the back side of the wall and your bathroom is on the other side, yes, I would deep six all the plaster and lath and go back with sheetrock/cbu depending on the use of the wall.

Re: Historic home tiny bath remodel!


Yeah, photo is taken inside the closets (it was a coat closet at one end, and my daughters closet at the other) looking at the backside of bathroom wall.

Ok, im gonna tear out the drywall/lathe crapshow and reframe that entire wall.

Rock and roll. That's the best way to do it. Clean slate do what you need to do without having to make do with someone else's framing.

Re: Historic home tiny bath remodel!


Dilemma is figuring out how HIGH/TALL my shower entry opening/door will be. Our plan is to eventually put a slider door, barn door style (would save us room from a swinging door-being our bathroom is so small), SO i'd have to frame this knowing WHICH door I will put on it eh? crap.

Re: Historic home tiny bath remodel!


With a barn door for the shower, how will you contain water splash? You could use the barn door, but would need a shower curtain, making the barn door redundant.

Re: Historic home tiny bath remodel!


I would not use a header at the door opening.
Steam will build up inside the shower and the potential for problems is increased.
Having said that, I hope that is not a load bearing wall location or else you will need to get fancy with the transfer of loads across that space.

I was thinking about putting a exhaust fan in the shower stall, electrician came out and said the way my crawl space is, close proximity to venting, it would be super easy....

As for the 'load bearing' wall, I assume you mean the large newly framed part (photo) I posted? That will get 16" OC 2x4's, and I left the inner and outer most original studs as they are in immaculate condition-those were also old 4x4 posts.

Re: Historic home tiny bath remodel!


Have not nailed these (shower entry) down, still trying to figure it out....and the other image of the 2 studs on the floor is the beginning of the shower stall walls (Not nailed down either) as I am baffled how to figure out the old remaining wall and how my new shower stall will butt up to that.

A 2x6 behind the last 2x4 will leave 1" sticking out each side for drywall/backer board.

The 'vacant area' I pointed out, is all along that OLD wall, the old lath plaster wall-those studs are 2x3.25 old oak, I can't get a 2x6 in there...not to mention the old plaster 'keys' spilling out between the lath adds to the loss of space.

Re: Historic home tiny bath remodel!


Could I just toe nail in some 2x4's, to the existing old studs, to give the NEW shower stall something to attach to?
like so

Re: Historic home tiny bath remodel!


You can block up any way that works. I thought you would be screwing your drywall/backer to the existing studs.
A 2x6 on it's flat behind the 2x4 would give a screwing block. So the 1-1/2 way, not the 5-1/2 way into the existing cavity.
