Bathroom floor and wall tiles

This bathroom received a total make-over.  New floor and wall tiles and everything else.  The new lights required an electrician to move some wires and add another switch, and the new deluxe base cabinets required me to move the supply and drain lines to the sink.  A bifold closet door was replaced with a 6 panel door to match the bathroom door.  We had an issue with the sink in that the material around the drain hole wasn’t formed correctly.  Thankfully, the manufacturer came out and was able to make it right.  Not shown in the photo is a new propane tankless water heater installed in the closet by a plumber, and a new walk-in tub installed by that manufacturer.  The homeowner did an excellent job with the painting.

Bathroom remodel due to a leak in the concrete wall

This bathroom had a crack in the concrete wall behind the shower that water poured through during heavy rains.  I removed the drywall around the shower, detached it from the 2×4 studs, and moved it forward so that the foundation people could make the repairs to the concrete.  When that was done, I put the shower back in position and a bathroom remodel began.   My job was to install a new shower faucet, repair the drywall, and to tile the floor.  Also shown is the orange colored product called Ditra.  The product uncouples the tiles from the concrete thus preventing any cracks in the concrete transferring into the tiles.  The homeowner then completed the job by doing the painting and installing the fixtures.
