Knee deep in bathroom remodel


Recommended Posts

So this is my  last room downstairs to be remodeled and I’m finding it being the smallest to be the biggest pain. Ok what I’ve done -  tore out old closest , drop ceiling and the double layer of  luan and vinyl flooring .I framed in for a new ceiling and closet,  new exhaust fan and light duct work / vent ,  installed duct work for heat  and did a 90 for wall vent ( it is so nice having heat in the bathroom ) installed another outlet , hung half the ceiling and got the closet shelving in . We’re using a PVC dual sided shiplap one side is  standard shiplap and the other is wainscoting. Wainscoting side going on ceiling  standard on walls . Will finish up the trim and and install bifold doors this weekend after staining . Still waiting on the shower unit then more framing before install. Pretty happy how it’s going but still lots of work left.

I did the same in our previous home.  Closet became a walkin shower.  Did all the tile work myself.  Lots of work indeed.  I enjoyed doing it because the finished product was something I created. I'll dig up some photos if I can find some.  It was 12 yrs ago.  Lol.

Well closet is done, still waiting on shower unit, that’s really holding me up now .  We decided to sand our original oak vanity to see and it turned out very nice, so we’re going to re- stain it and use it zero wrong with it. Wife wanted a barn door type doors on the vanity so I got them cut up and gluing  them together now .Home Depot got in our bifold door today to go in between the bathroom /  laundry room. So she’s going to have another weekend  of staining again, she’s done it all.

Bathroom remodels are the worse.  When I did mine I could believe the hidden problems.  Previous remodel someone cut halfway through a bunch of floor joist to make way for plumbing.

However I did find a collect of various vintage beer cans from 50's tuck in wall.  This guy must have been a real pro.

I already repaired a floor joist where they  cut it and did hack repair and just nailed a 2 by 4 on it .
