My bathroom needed repair. The design was outdated and floor had dry rot. We hadn’t used the bathroom in years it was so bad. I ripped out the walls and removed some of the rotten subfloor.
By building back the floor with new tongue and groove boards, and covering the walls with durock cement board, I built the cabinet using popular for the vanity front.
Then I had to rough estimate the marble tiles to be ordered and the granite tiles and in the end was off by 12 tiles for the walls. Something to note was that the tiles come in lots, which means that they match color and consistency, meaning I was lucky to get more tiles with the same lot number. Installing the tiles was hard work, and although not shown in the video, one very important thing to mention is that the finished wall in the shower surround should be as flat as possible in the verticle area where the shower glass will be installed. The shower glass is completely straight on edge, if the walls are not straight on edge or out of square in relation to the floor then there could be installation problems.
I found a shower glass installer on Craigslist.com, and he did the job for what I would have paid for the glass alone.
Did a custom job myself, with supplies I got at home depot, and lowes stores.
In the begining, I am standing in the crawl space because I had to tear out the floor. So I started from the bottom up. One thing to remember if you read this is that I did not remove the ceiling. The ceiling was ok and all I did was paint it. If your thinking of remodeling a bathroom, look at the way I did it. I tiled the walls from floor to the ceiling and I will never have to paint the walls again. It will look like new for a long time and it is built to last a lifetime. This video might give you an idea for a home remodeling project.
