A little bit of weekend sweat equity and about $500 in materials brought a nice update to the bathroom. Some paint colour changes and an installation of Shaker room batten style trim work.
It only took a couple of years (start here) but worth the wait I think 🙂
We bought this tub through Sears, its made of fiberglass and acrylic. A few months after we bought it we found another style at Rona, which, for $200 more was better styled and thicker walls. Almost like a slipper foot style, but I was committed to this tub, so it stays.
Now, let me preface this by clarifying I said earlier “I’ll get to it.” Ok…ok…yes, its 30 months later. But at least its getting done! Right? 🙂
Well, we’ve been in our brand new house for about 2-1/2 years now. The dear wife says its time to remodel. 😮
Spent the day finishing installing the Durock cement board, installing most of the drywall except where the plumberneeds to work. I’ve been told that 1/2 plywood could have been used or “green board” (moisture resistant drywall). I opted to use the Durock.
Removed the tub and framing. Patched the hole where the tub drain went through the floor.
With the new stud wall up, we can see the 24 inches of space that will be gained in the bathroom.
A client recently bought a new home (built in 1982) and the bathroom is very small. So they are pushing out the tub 24 inches into the adjacent room. They called upon us for a review and an estimate. We discussed the project, reviewed the reno work involved and I gave them an estimate.
This is a project that will take a while to do since I will be working at it as I get time. I don’t have far to travel since its in my basement. 🙂 Of course, house reno’s tend to stretch out too because I keep saying, I’ll get to it.
