KB's bath remod

Time for the master bath redo. We've been "planning" to do it since we bought the house. In '86

It's a postage stamp, stud to stud it's only 50" by 103"

Plan is to tile the shower stall and floor ... it held up OK before with tile ... except for the turquoise color of course ... so I'm confident using tile here.

I will install sliding shower doors to "open up" the shower visually to the rest of the bathroom to create the illusion of more space. My first question is about the floor. Formerly there was plywood over the subfloor in the non shower part of the bath and a lead pan in the shower. I plan on pouring my own pan, so should I put 3/4 plywood down over the whole floor before building the shower curb ?

Hi KB -
Nice job on the demo! Very clean! I know from experience how messy it is during the process. Seems you can sweep and haul and sweep and haul, but there's still mode debris, eh?

Is that a pocket door on the left? Just curious is all. I have two pocket doors in my bath, and I do love them for the space savings. They can really help open up an otherwise small bath.

I imagine one of the pros will be along shortly to verify, but I believe that you want to put that 3/4 ply down over the entire floor and run it right into the shower. It might be that you need to have another layer of 1/2" ply on top of that too. That's where the pros will step in and set you right as I am not 100% certain. I know that's what I did in my bath over joists, but I had no board subfloor like you have.

I believe you'll build your mud bed and curb right on top of that ply that you put down.

Can't wait to see more "in progress" photos!

Forgot to share finished project !

Back here on another project and realized that I never shared a finished pic on this project. Here it is ... never ever could have done it without your help! Shower was prepped with Kerdi and the pan was a custom pour.

It's a tiny little thing ... pic taken with a superwide lens standing outside the house looking through the window. The house sold though and the buyers loved it.

thanks, kb
