The "before" bathroon didn't have a shower, only a very deep, heavy tub surrounded by drywall, not concrete board and tile. The floors were laminate and super old, so the combination of both made the bathroom feel really dirty all the time no matter how much I cleaned.
This is a before of the bathroom:
While this room is a little bigger then a coat closet, we have to make the most of the space that we have.
Our ultimate goal is to install a tiled shower and built in and get the room functional again. We gutted our upstairs bathroom a few years back and learned a lot from that project, so we're hoping *crossing our fingers* that this project goes a little quicker for us, what I mean by quicker is shorter than five months quicker!
And with a couple of beers, we mustered up the courage to start the demo:
Here's the updated list as of 03/30/13 of everything we need to do and need to buy for this project:
Clean out crap aka: empty boxes and dog food from the room Clear out any remaining debris and rip up remaining flooring Remove/replace unused pipe/electrical wiring Replace any weak flooring Install piping for shower/faucet Update electrical Buy concrete board and drywall Frame out shower and built-in Insulate walls
- Install concrete board and drywall <--80% done.
Figure out if we are doing a shower basin or having a tiled shower floor Buy tile
- Install tile
- Grout tile
- Caulk corners
- Seal grout
- Touch up paint
- Install molding/trim
- Remember that we forgot a bunch of little stuff that we will buy and take forever to put in.
