The rest room in our dwelling, like the mudroom, has not been current due to the fact it was designed in 1983. Commonly, that wouldn’t be a trouble, to update it, you could just insert some new fixtures and paint the partitions. But this toilet has a funky format. There are two showers and when you stroll into the place, you search straight at the rest room (and any individual who may well be on it). So relatively than just updating the cosmetics, I have determined to absolutely transform the toilet by shifting and simplifying the format as very well as carrying out some much essential beautification.
This prepare includes getting rid of the focused stand-up shower at just one stop of the home and transferring the rest room to its more discrete site. The shower/tub combo that is also in the home will be changed with a additional fashionable, tile and glass shower. And in the awkwardly-massive house that the toilet the moment occupied will property a soaking tub.
Relocating these fixtures also suggests transferring drains and offer lines from beneath the flooring. I am quite privileged that I have accessibility to these strains from my basement shop. So I had to reroute and exchange some of the drain lines to accommodate the new toilet place, switching all-around the shower, and introducing the tub. Whilst the space was gutted, I also preferred to increase some new lights and a new vent supporter. It truly is likely to be a great deal of get the job done, but we’re going to tackle it 1 piece at a time.
Demolition can be the most overwhelming and/or the most entertaining part of any remodel. Most homeowners have a organic affinity to smashing holes in their walls, which is totally understandable. But in our circumstance, there are quite several things in this area that need to have to stay. I poked all over in advance of the hammer fell and found out that 1 wall scheduled for elimination was housing some important vent lines and water supply traces that go to the 2nd flooring. I am extremely satisfied that I figured that out early so I failed to unintentionally wreck anything else in the home.
After that, It was time to crack things. We very carefully removed the vainness and counter-top rated that will eventually be reinstalled, Ginny smashed some needless walls, and Josh ripped out a bunch of drywall. Most shower/tub inserts have a lip that is lined up by drywall, so really don’t worry about getting thorough not to ruin the walls, it is less complicated to just exchange the sheetrock exactly where necessary afterwards.
At the time the inserts ended up taken off and the bathroom was taken out, I ripped up the linoleum floor and eliminated the unsightly wallpaper. I patched any holes in the partitions that were being being, but other than that, we experienced a clear slate.
I lower out the outdated bathroom drain pipe (it was not disgusting), the previous shower drain, and the outdated shower/tub drain and started out from scratch. This was a good deal of measuring, reducing, and gluing in fittings, but they all lastly lined up with the holes in the ground.
Disclaimer* if you usually are not entirely confident in your electrical abilities, hire an electrician!
I ran new traces to two bins previously mentioned thew vainness for new sconce lighting and also went up into the attic and ran new boxes for three more ceiling lights. Two pendant lights would hag over the bathroom and the tub, and I additional a dampness-rated, recessed mild over the shower. I also rigged up a new mild switch and exhaust lover.
Once again, we’d like to thank Lowe’s for sponsoring this undertaking and test out Component 2 of the Toilet Remodel.
