  1. Life Pro Tip: Use gloves, safety glasses, and for the love of god – don't use tools while barefoot, let alone in a bathroom where bacteria is abundant.

  2. My dad and I removed old vinyl flooring and put wood laminate. What we did to help take off the old floor was a heat gun. It was still a pain in the butt to remove, but helped.

  3. Last time I had to remove a toilet was when our son flushed a bunch of his Sesame Street bathtub toys down the shitter and then someone took a dump in the toilet……. good times.

  5. Put a big trash bag or rag down that toilet drain pipe and something over the air duct… The duct isn't as bad but you still don't really want stuff going down in there… The toilet drain pipe is a disaster if tools and stuff fall down there. Best to plug it up and not let it happen (but don't forget to pull your rag or whatever before setting the toilet! Ha)

  6. My bathroom has a similar layout to yours…except has an awful banjo style sink counter. But what's more annoying…is that the original builder plumbed everything to the RIGHT wall! The vanity itself is pretty much a cupboard build around this awful plumbing. I assume it's going to be a major job to install plumbing that goes to the back (outside) wall…maybe that's not allowed. Anyways, much to contemplate. I do agree with the others…basic PPE (gloves, shoes) is a no brainer….but thanks for the videos!

  7. next time you pull up vinyl floor use a torch.  It heats up and melts the glue.

  24. Why would you choose dark cabinet hardware if you have a chrome finish toilet paper holder and what appears to be a brushed nickle faucet? Way too many different metal finishes in such a small space.

  27. I'm sure he'll wash his hands. And c'mon, people, he's a guy! Lol. Plus it's a little harder removing all those nuts and bolts with gloves on. And latex gloves would just rip with what he's doing. I wish I could find JUST ONE video on YouTube without someone adding their nasty, or rude two cents! What did you think he was gonna go back in time and then put on gloves! C'mon! It's not your hands either!

  28. In the future, place a balled up rag in the floor pipe to avoid your bathroom filling up with noxious waste fumes. You can avoid it while tiling and it makes for a better experience

  29. Great job Nils! This movie was very helpful for me to take on the bathroom myself.

  30. You need to block the sewage drains to keep the gases out. You have 3 different finishes of hardware. But it's your choice. I thought the flooring you used can be installed right over existing flooring.

  31. How was your subfloor in such good shape before you laid the new stuff? Was there no adhesive down for the previous vinyl or did you lay a new floor down over top of the existing one? I peeled back two layers today and there is still a paper residue left even after steaming and scraping most of it away? Any thoughts?
