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.

1918 Bathroom

Bathroom remodel on the 1918 house.  It was torn down to the wall studs and built back up from there.  It needed a little bit of everything from floor & wall repair, to final paint and much between.  It received a new electric circuit, water supply lines & shutoffs, exhaust fan with metal duct to outside, faucets, tub and contemporary sliding door, vanity and mirror.  The fixtures were Delta from a matching collection including a grab bar in the shower.  Wood blocking in the walls allows for secure attachment of more grab bars if necessary.

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.

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
