Got a few things done and redone this weekend.

I penciled in on the subfloor where the new sister'd joist were for screw placement as well as where the hole needed to be for the drain. Thats when it dawned on me that I had wanted to place the sisters on the outside of the joist cavity where the drain was going in.

Realizing I had not done that, I went back and re measured for the drain opening and the foam tray I had to cut down before I messed something else up.

I had setup the tray on some saw horses and put the subfloor down on top of it to mark out the layout (forgot to take a picture). I clamped on a straight edge and used my saw and trimmed off the 2 sides.

I then placed the tray in the opening and double checked the placement of the drain opening.

To be continued in next post

Satisfied that the center in the right spot, drilling out the drain opening was next.

There might of been room but the sister'd joist looked like it was going to make hooking up the drain very tight.

I took out the subfloor and cutout the section of the the sister that was blocking the opening, adding a new sister on the opposite side as extra insurance.

Hopefully thats the last mistake for at least a week or so

Worked on getting the walls plumb and flat.

First was making sure the end studs were plumb, I cut a piece of 3/4" plywood to use as a straight edge, going from end to end of each wall.

Nailing a 2x4 cutoff in the center of each wall, I used this as a brace to rest the straight edge on to get the measurements.

Measuring the gap of each stud in 1 foot increments from top to bottom.

I then cut a shim matching the gap on the table saw. It wnet pretty fast once I got the first piece plumb. That one went from 1/2" at the bottom to less than an 1/8" at the top.

It would of been easier to just nail some new 2x4's but I need the cavity spacing for the niches we bought.

Next was cutting the foam tray extension to size and fitting both pieces in the floor.

It is nerve racking to take a saw to something that cost a couple hundred dollars...definitely wanted to make sure the measurements were right.

Things came together very nicely.

I went around the outside edges of the tray with a piece of HydroBan board and traced where I need to cut a 1/2" rabbet for the board to sit down in.

You can see in the last picture the shims I just taped on the studs and how much I had to shim out the right side.

Getting closer to actually looking like things are getting done.

Slowly making progress.

Built out the curb. Got the tray mortared, back buttered and installed.

Drain hook up happens Thursday. Hopefully we can actually get walls covered this weekend.
