Like a lot of bathroom remodels, this guest bathroom was a complete tear-out to the studs and build back up from there. A furnace duct ran along side the tub and that became a nice shelf or place to sit. The Schluter System was used to form a completely waterproof backing behind the tiles. A 32×60 Delta 400 deep soak tub from Home Depot was surrounded by 12×12 ceramic tiles. The customer kept the lavatory base and got a new top and faucet. Two coats of satin paint finished off this guest bathroom remodel.
This bathroom remodel job was gutted out down to the wall studs. The job called for a new tub, wall tiles, light fixtures, shutoff valves, and paint. The floor tiles, toilet, faucets, and lavatory were all somewhat new and were re-used. During the gutting stage an unknown difficulty presented itself right away. The walls were two layers; 1/4″ painted masonite panels over 1/2″ drywall. Not a huge problem but did result in some spacing issues with the floor tiles. The existing window was 100% plastic and glass and the trim I used was a plastic composite sealed in with 60 year latex caulk. The wall tiles are set on Schulter Kerdi, and the tiled up shower nook is on a Nobel base. We were able to take out the walls without hurting either the ceiling or the floor tiles and that was a relief. Wrapping it up with a nice paint job including the closet
this job looked great. Total cost to the customer less than $4500
