The day we arrived back in town after our home had been rented for many years.
I flushed this toilet before taking a pic...
Look at the Dirt on the tub and this was the cleanest tub in the house..mmm
The only thing to do with this room was Gut it..
So here is the Recap and again if you want to see where we started and what we have done in this last year you can go back and start at Week 1.
Tearing out the old units.
Tearing up the floor after taking out the sink, Toilet and Tub..
That hole just got bigger as the days went on..
New floor Joists and plumbing.
Sub floor installed
New insulation and window
Shower Floor pan
Final layer of shower pan
New sub floor, walls and electrical...check
Tile board on floor installed
Barrier and Tile board in shower getting installed
George setting up his new Tile Cutter..let the games begin.
We have never tiled before !!!
George laid the floor tiles
Don't know how it happened but I was left to tile the rest of the bathroom..yikes
At this point I was asking myself why did I pic this pattern and not go with a simple design..
Grouting was harder than you think..not for the weak at heart...
As you know this shower floor was a challenge because mister George had screwed up the first attempt at laying these tiles. I had to lay them in one by one..
George wanted a Sauna look..
Painting..The color is orange looking in the pics but it is a terracotta color
Staining the ceiling was hard work..
But in the end we did manage to finish after installing new toilet, sink, fixtures, moulding and door. Hope you like it..
Thanks for stopping by and hopefully you get some inspiration..if not..oh well
What I have Learned
You have to redo your bathroom when your not too sure who's bum has been using it for years...
Tiling is not an easy task
You make mistakes but everything can't be perfect...
Until next time
