I've been hiding out a bit from my tractors. I have been in the middle of a major bathroom remodel. I figure I would share some pics of the different stages that have been taken by my wife. Hope you guys enjoy and maybe give me some hints and tips.

It's not completely done just yet. Hoping by Wednesday to be finally completed. Anyone have any tips on trimming the shower wall. I thought about the caulk tape but was looking for some more suggestions.

What about using a decorative tile trim.  It looks like you have done a very nice job.

Looks great. You've done A LOT of work. I've been that deep into several rooms in my home and each time it was a trip. Regarding trimming out the shower, I've used a few small 1/4 round trim for something similar.

I have no clue about remodling so I have no tips. Great work though it's coming along very nicely.

That deteriorated 2"x 12" floor support in front of the toilet drain pipe could be trouble waiting to happen..  Did you shore that up with another board?  BTW your wife's "piggies' look nice in that picture too!!   :D 

 

The tub & surround look great!  I put some white plastic laminated sheets above mine to protect the drywall even more.  It was pretty cheap and looks great.  

 

:thumbs: Keep the pictures coming!

Looks good! When you said reno, you weren't kidding, floor boards and all. I'll be doing something similar soon but stopping at the floor and I don't have to replace the 1 piece shower/surround unit. These type of jobs always seem to be more work and take more time/money than I planned. I hope you are staying on time and budget.

In one of those pics you can see a 2x12 standing up. I put 2 of those in to reinforce the water damaged floor joists. I got no headaches now. I kinda did a little over kill when it came to my floor due to the ceramic tile. I wanted no flex. Oh and this is an older house (1940's) so those are 2x8's reinforced with 2x12's lol.

Hey, you have indoor plumbing!

Glad to see you used "green-board" in the bathroom.

I worked for a fellow doing residential building/remodeling for 6 years...Done a lot of bathrooms!

That's looking real good. I haven't put in one of those type of surrounds in years. Most all ours are full tile jobs. Not sure what I would do around the edge of the surround, maybe just a bead of caulk. The window will be the real fun.

Looks like a large project, well done! Certainteed makes PVC "restoration board". These are available in lots of sizes just like lumber, you could use that as jamb extensions around the window, ripping to fit width. The moisture from the tub will never affect it. You could also use it a casing or look for some other type of plastic for the trim. Make sure to use stainless or other rust proof fasteners.
NICE JOB!!

I appreciate the comments. I just got done mounting the toilet and caulking around it. I've come to the conclusion I really hate caulking. I'm glad they have finishing tools since I'm also really bad at it. Turning on my last water feed now with hopefully no leaks. I also completely replumbed my entire house with 100% no leaks. I used that new PEX tubing with crimp rings and WOW. That stuff is great. I now have a circuit board for plumbing, more water pressure, and less wait time for hot water. I did my whole house which includes 2 full baths for right at $500. That's hard to beat. Well got to get back at it. I will post the final pics after everything is completed. We have a dinner party Thursday, so I'm on a deadline! Anyone want to come install my pool after this. I will provide food and beer (21+).

So you haven't even HAD the party yet and you're praying to the porcelain god!?!?!?   :worshippy1:

 

Sorry to say some funny visualations came to mind reading your last post!!   :bigrofl:

 

My uncle has been using that PEX for a while and loves it..  I haven't had the opportunity to experiment with it yet as I re-plumbed the whole house 11 years ago with new copper..  

 

Have fun @ the party!! :rocker:

In the next set of pictures I will make sure to include my toes LOL! I have water sitting in the toilet tank now waiting for leaks. Figured I would post again to pass the time.
