Da Bears in the Woods

This is a total gutting of a mountain cabin using porcelain travertine lookalike. The wainscot is tumbled travertine with green porcelain and black slate figures. Figure cuts were done on wetsaw. You can read about and see more detailed how-to pics on the thread (and I apologize..it's a really long thread):

master bath

this is the master bath of the house we sold about 8 months ago.










my girlfriend and i bought this house to fix and sell. it was our first remodel project for the both of us. i've done small things here and there and consider myself pretty handy. but when we got down to it on this place, well, it was quite a bit to handle. but i think that's the best way to learn is to just dive right in head first.

this bathroom the pan was falling thru the subfloor and was being supported by the joists...which were rotted. you can see i sistered on new joists to the old ones....after i scraped out all the rotted wood and treated with wood hardener. the sill plates on both walls had to be replaced as well as many studs, and all the subfloor. it's hard to tell from the pic, but the end of the joists die into the foundation, and all of that sill/mud plate was rotted and had to be replaced.

in the first pic is the original depth of the shower, which is kinda hard to tell. i took out a hall closet to widen the shower. oh, the original shower was tiled directly on the drywall. you could open up the hall closet, push on the drywall and watch it move back and forth. i'm suprised no one fell through the shower when they were in it.

Looks like you found a few surprises under the old sub-floor Neill. Nice work, really nice. Like those little niches too.

Saw your kitchen photos on the other thread Marge started. Sharp, real sharp. Looks to me like you guys put a lot of sweat equity and real dollars into this makeover. Did you come out ahead of the game, post sale?

My first remodel of my life. Plumbing was leaking, floor was rotting, lots of wasted space in the small bath. Not completely done cosmetically, but the hard part is out of the way.

mike2,

ya we came out alright in the end. we sold about 3 months later than we should have and we went over budget a tad. but it was a great experience.




this is the guest bathroom. all done in pink tile, tub and sink. that tub is tiny. the replacement tub from hd stuck out past the wall a few inches. i had to build out the wall a bit to make up for it. also, if you look really close, the wall with the window in it is cinderblock. it was sooo fun chipping off the tile from that wall. it created a lot of divits. like the master bath there was a lot of rotted wood to change out.










this was my girlfriends very first tile job and she did an incredible job. she chose to do diamond grid and it just came out great. this bathroom is soooo small that taking pics of it is really tough. the pedestal sink was about the smalles sink in could find that was functional and small enough you could walk around it and not be squished by the tub.

Marge asked me to post my pics of my finished project here. Below are some pics of my finished shower. I still need to paint the ceiling and walls surrounding it, but the shower itself is done. I wish I had taken some before pictures now, because there really is no way to describe the previous shower other than to say it was the most hideous thing I've ever showered in. It was the same floor size (3' x 4'), but it had a lowered ceiling of about 7' in it, and a wall across the right half the front of it with a glass door on the left side of the front wall. The tile itself was 4" porcelin tile that was a pinkish/beige color, and the floor tile was 1" square mosaic. It felt like I was showering in a closet. So I busted all that out down to the bare studs, raised the ceiling to 8', and started over. This was a great learning experience, since I learned some things I would have done differently next time.

The lighting is two recessed lights placed 8" in from the side walls, centered from front to back. They are 4" cans, with incandescent R30 bulbs. It makes a really nice lighting effect on the walls, showing the shadows of the texture of the tile.

I really have to thank everyone here for your great information, I've been reading and learning an incredibly amount here. There were so many times I wondered how to do something and came here and searched or asked and found the answer. What a great place!

I'm going to be gutting our guest bath down to the walls and doing a total makeover in there next, so will start a progress thread on it when I do.

I suppose tht although I'm not finished the shower yet, I'll post my pics here. I don't have nearly the nicest nor most intricate tile job around, however I think I might take the cake for ugliest bathroom to start with

Eddie and Jon,

Great looking new baths. Eddie, you will take some before pics next time! And Jon, if not the ugliest before, it's in the running!

Thanks for sharing your projects here.
