With Craig's input, I can do this!

I was quite relieved to learn I won't have to go back to the bare studs. Right after our visit, I went to H. D. to get the recommended materials, arriving home just at suppertime.

I did get started after supper, but have run out of energy for tonight. Tomorrow will find me taping, mudding, skimming and smoothing the surface. I found a couple problem areas we missed during Craig's visit and will address them as well.

This work really is much like drywall repair and painting...stabilize, strengthen, bond, coat, surface prep. No huge surprises, just different materials and a few new techniques, I'm sure.

Once measurable progress has bbeen made, I will post photos to show how the job is progressing.

Thanks, Craig!

Before applying the Hydroban, the thinset on the walls needs at least a day to thoroughly dry after it cures so the Hydroban doesn't bubble.

Very welcome Dave. You got the skills!
I will stop by today to drop off the 9235 waterproofing. If you think of any questions, get them ready!

Update

I made real progress today.

I found a couple places needing screws, stoned the old thinset, slipped in a backer where soap dish cut-outs were, mesh taped, filled soap dish voids (mostly), and mudded the seamthat took me up to supprtime.

Then I dozed for most of the evening!

New photos follow.

Fully dry makes sense. No rush to apply moisture barrier...

Good job with the repairs.
Shame about those soap dishes and shelf.
Onward and upward!

Tub Surround Update --FINALLY!

Well gang, it's been a while, but I'm back to report on the tub surround Craig was advising me on. My limited time availability caused the tile bed prep to drag on. My "sister" began to get anxious to get the job done, so I aked Craig if he would be interested in installing the tile.

He coached me a bit more on the tile bed prep, we came to terms, and the planets aligned to allow a time for Craig to begin.

At about the same time, our weather changed and everyone was set back by snow removal concerns, then holidays, family in from out of town (for me), and maybe a bit of winter doldrums.

Craig texted me on 12/30 the job was finished and I just got photos yesterday, 1/9.

I know there's no way I coukd have done a job THAT NICE, THST FAST on my own.

Crsig worked us in and made this big brother proud to have been a part of this project.

Thank you, Craig, for your skill and professionalism.

In the coming days I will finish where the painted surfaces meet the tile and repaint the room.

Very welcome Dave! Very glad I was able to help you and Marie out of the tile jam you were in.
Thanks for the kind words.

PS. I hope your nephew enjoys his new bathroom. He gave me a handshake and a thumbs up when I left.
