Master Bath Remodel

My wife and I have been planning a remodel of our master bathroom for the past year or so. This fall we finally pulled the trigger and began the project. This was definitely the biggest project we have ever taken on and we were more than a little intimidated going into it. Doing our research and homework though, gave us the confidence that this was something we could do. We completed all of the work on our own. We moved a wall and plumbing to make our shower much larger than it was (we removed our seldom-used jetted tub to make more room). Most of what we did, we had never done before. Moving plumbing, building our shower floor, installing a new drain, concrete board, tile work and probably a few other things were firsts for us. Our initial plan was to have someone else install the shower glass but when we got to that point we had the confidence to do it ourselves. That was probably the most difficult part of the job but we did it and everything lined up perfectly, thanks to some very careful and precise measurements! When we started the project we were both on vacation time so we were putting in full days on it. We finished it by working each evening after work and on weekends. It was a big project and it did take a lot of time but we love it! Everyone that sees it talks about how luxurious it looks and how professional the work is. No question, there were some difficult and challenging times along the way but we would do more research and ask more questions of our local Home Depot associates before plowing ahead. One important thing we learned along the way is to always have the right tools. We purchased a Ryobi tile saw and brad nailer during the project. They were both lifesavers. Our Ryobi drill was probably the tool we used the most and was easily our MVP tool for the project. Our next project will be our kitchen remodel!
