My New Bath

Thought I'd share, oh and don't let the kids be the first to use a whirlpool tub with bubble bath soap.

Nice work, Richie. Nice design & colors. But I have to ask how you're able to put the mixer on an outside wall.

Great job, Richie. Took a while to get that kid and the suds out of there, didn't it?

What's the big deal with putting a mixer on an outside wall? Insulate and you're okay, no?

Secret is that it's fricken cold up here!

In my neck of the woods -15 below zero with a wind and you'll freeze the pipes in no time. I thought it got cold by Richie, too. That's why I'm askin'.

Very nice RD!

I noticed you installed the corner caddies,and cut the tile around them correct?

I prefer,and this is just me mind ya..... I like to kerf 4 slots into the side of the shampoo shelf with a Makita,2 on each side,deep enough to accept a penny a little more than halfway. I then do the same in the corner,finding the desired elevation. Oh,prior to cutting the slots in the shelf,I check to see how square the shelf is with the wall,and will taper cut the shelf if need be.

Epoxy the pennies into the shelf,let them dry. After cutting slots in wall,dry fit the piece,and if it fits,epoxy it all in. Never had a failure/callback,and my opinion,it looks cleaner.

BBL,spending too much time on this board lately lol

All the homes in my development are this way, I just make sure the wall is insulated behind the pipes, never had a problem, been through 15 winters now, also it's open behind the wall to the basement, just below this section is the heating system and exhaust stack to the chimney, plenty of heat rising up into that outside bay.

Yes, the shelves are placed on a course of tile and the next row cut around, same for the diaganol and then notched to fit around.

Have to try it your way some day, thanks Autoplay.

The diagonal cuts show the skill of a true craftsman, very nice work RD.
Now did you get to pick the colors or your wife?

Price?, well, I haven't added it up, probably won't, everything is new except the studs, new plumbing, including all new to the stack, mud floor, electrical, etc, etc, it was over $6000.00 in materials easy.

The toilet was the only thing that was reused.

Time it took?, about six weeks, that was weekends and a few hrs. here and there in the evenings after work.
