Over a year ago our renovation under contract officially ended. We knew before we started that there would still be more (major) items to finish in the house.
Among the rooms that needed finishing (laundry, conservatory master closet, conservatory bathroom, master bathroom) I decided bathrooms would be the first order of business (no pun intended).
The floors in the other rooms depended on the bathroom floors for a smooth transition and having additional bathrooms would be a true convenience.
Instead of focusing on one then the other, we are finishing the bathrooms in tandem after the rough-in:
- Drywall the room.
- Install shower pan.
- Install cement board in shower stall.
- Install sub-floor up to shower pan level.
- Paint room — ceiling and walls.
- Install some lighting fixtures.
- Install waterproofing in showers.
- Tile floor.
- Tile shower.
- Build/install vanity.
- Install toilet.
- Hang lighting fixtures.
- Install plumbing fixtures.
- Breathe a sigh of relief.
Number 2 above was accomplished July 26th of last year (2014) and we have finally reserved a date (next Wednesday) with the installer to finish the job (#7) so we can start tiling. (That’s right, over a year later.)
When #7 is finished we’ll be halfway through the list. (I can hear you laughing.)
Numbers 8 and 9 above might do us in.
What sidetracks you?
