Bathroom Remdel

The project was to originally replace a slate floor and white subway tiles in the shower. Once the project was started it was realized that the previous owners did the remodel themselves and used wrong materials. The shower was wet and moldy behind the tile and the floor tiles were installed onto wood. Also discovered when stripping the tile from the shower was that the bathtub was painted to cover chips from previous work. With this said the decision was to strip down the entire bathroom and give it a fresh makeover. New plumbing and drains were installed in the shower with a new bathtub. Polished porcelain 12x24 tiles were selected for the install in the shower. Prep for the shower before tiling was to use concrete board and seal all cracks. Glass tiles were used to give a pattern and breakup the color. Four corner glass shelves were installed for soaps, shampoos, etc... Prep on the floor to fix damage was to use self leveling concrete and concrete boards.The floor used 6x24 porcelain tiles that were used in a staggered pattern. Once this was completed a new vanity was installed with a combination glass tile and polished tile back splash with a ground glass counter top and above the counter mounted sinks. Except for a few hand tools all tools used for the job were RYOBI tools (Example of tools: battery drill gun, tile saw, bits, grinder etc...). Keep in mind my day job is an engineering manager at an air conditioning company. Overall my son is happy with his new and improved bathroom.
