So whilst my wife and son are away in the UK for 3 weeks I am attempting a complete bathroom reno. All the hardware is being replaced, but in the same space so not too much plumbing. Started with the bath as the old one was only 15" deep and not really much use for bathing. Had aplumber come round and fit the new bath in the same space, I had removed all the drywall so it was just the framing. After this I fitted Hardibacker half inch board and then taped my gapes between boards with mold resistant mesh tape and made sure there were never 4 corners meeting. Then it was onto the tiling stage, I am still doing this as I have never tiled before a friend started me off by adding a baton in the centre of the wall and starting at the top half for the tiling and in the dead centre of the area not left to right. Not going too badly atm, just need to finish my tiling tonight so I can grout tomorrow night. Then I need to pull up the floor tiles and add backerboard to the floors and tile those, also adding Nuheat to the floor. Then its a new vanity and toilet install and some painting. I hope that I have enough time to complete the project, they get back on May 30th. I will try and add pictures tonight.
