Custom shower and bathroom

Black tiles installed using Schluter Sytem in a basement shower

The customers had a vision and I helped it come true.  They did the lay-out for the walls and helped me with the framing and the drywall finishing, plus they had friends do the electric and plumbing.  They also picked out all the tiles and delivered them to the job site.

The tiles were installed using the Schluter System.  The wall tiles are 12×24 installed on Schluter Kerdi, and the shower floor tiles are six sided 2″ mosaics on Kerdi on a drypack mortar base on a concrete slab.  The floor tiles outside of the shower are the same 12×24 tiles installed on Schluter Ditra on a concrete slab.

A tempered glass panel will be installed on the 135 degree curb opening.  The rest of the curb will remain without a door though framing behind the tiles is there should a door be wanted.  Also behind the tiles is wood blocking for hand rails should they ever be needed.

Leaky toilet results in bathroom repair and remodel.

A circle of discolored vinyl flooring growing outward from the toilet signaled a leaky wax ring.  Left alone, the floor would eventually rot away, but fortunately it was caught in time.  The old toilet, vanity, and vinyl were removed.   The problem with the old toilet flange was found and remedied.  A couple shut-off valves were replaced, and a problem with the sink drain where it entered the wall was fixed.  Then new vinyl, vanity and low flush toilet were installed to complete this bathroom repair and remodel.

Bathroom makeover

This bathroom was a disaster.  Not only did the toilet leak causing the floor underneath to rot, the owner decided to paint the entire room – including the shower walls – UK blue.  Of course, the paint pulled away from the walls and it became a more of a mess.  We reused the tub, vanity, and toilet and replaced most everything else including the window.  The end result was a nice looking, modern bathroom.

 

Small bathroom remodel

This bathroom needed a complete remodel.  The porcelain finish on the old iron tub was worn down to rusty metal and the floor was rotting out from under the tiles.  We gutted the floor and walls down to the bare wood, replaced rotted wood where necessary, replaced the tub and vanity with new, and built it back up with new ceramic floor and wall tiles.  The end result was a very nice and clean modern bathroom.
