Y’all, the grasp toilet transform is getting thrilling! I like the stage of a transform when the drywall goes up. That’s when it begins wanting like an actual room once more, and I can actually begin envisioning the tip lead to my thoughts. And it’s additionally enjoyable to recollect simply a few weeks in the past when the room was nothing however ground joists (with the grime under the home plainly seen), studs, and ceiling joists. It’s come a good distance, and I’d say we’re about 1/3 of the way in which to the end line.
So right here’s the way it taken care of the fellows left yesterday. In the following couple of footage, I’m standing within the doorway between the lavatory and the house gymnasium for these views. That is the self-importance wall…
You may see the tough in plumbing the place the sinks will go on both aspect of the window. (I used my huge angle lens to take these footage, so the room could look a bit bigger in these footage than it truly is in particular person.)
The door is an exterior door for now, which leads out to Cooper’s fenced-in yard. However that door will ultimately result in a big main bedroom.
On this view, you’ll be able to see the self-importance wall on the left, and a tiny sliver of the bath wall on the best. The opening goes into the bathe.
Right here’s a greater view of the bath wall, with a gap to the bathe on the left, and a gap to the bathroom space on the best.
Nearly three weeks or so in the past, that view seemed like this…
It’s come a good distance! However there’s nonetheless fairly a option to go. Anyway, transferring on…
Right here’s a greater view of the bathroom space.
And now these subsequent few footage are from the attitude of standing proper in entrance of the outside door (i.e., future doorway to the long run main bedroom). The self-importance wall…
The view straight forward is the doorway into the house gymnasium…
And right here’s the bath wall from this attitude, with the opening that results in the bathroom space.
And the bathe from this attitude…
The bathe is lastly underway. The bathe ground has the home wrap, insulation, subfloor, concrete board, and the bathe pan liner, which is a really thick plastic that covers the underside and wraps up onto the partitions a number of inches to create waterproof corners.
I’m not fairly positive what the remainder of the method might be, however the bathe ground continues to be about 2.5 inches decrease than the principle ground, and when it’s completed, the 2 areas might be completely degree with one another.
The bathe is so large that the usual liner dimension didn’t cowl the entire ground, so that they needed to overlap two items and use a particular adhesive to seal them. It stunk to excessive heaven, and that’s why there are cement blocks in there proper now. They had been getting used to place strain on that seam.
I do know I’ve defined in a previous put up about my selections relating to bathe heads, placement of valves, diverters, and many others., however right here’s a visible. When standing within the opening to the bathe, the bathe head, handheld bathe head, and diverter might be on the best wall. The bathe area of interest might be on the wall straight forward.
This would possibly make issues clearer…possibly. ? I had them put blocking for future seize bars all the way in which across the bathe, in order that restricted the house we had for bathe niches. That’s nice with me, since we actually don’t use a complete lot of merchandise anyway. So the bathe area of interest is to the left of the wall with the bathe head. The principle bathe head can have the three-way diverter underneath it. And the hand-held bathe head, which might be hooked up to an adjustable bar, might be to the best of the bathe head.
I additionally had them put blocking down low in order that I can discover a big (hopefully fairly) eyehook that I can use to maintain Cooper in place whereas bathing him. That boy HATES water and baths, and he’s a really robust 95-pound canine who does all the things he can to maintain from having a shower, so I’ll want some option to tether him contained in the bathe if I’m going to have any likelihood of conserving him in there.
And I made a decision to place the water management valve simply contained in the bathe opening to the best.
And to finish the 180-degree view of the bathe, right here’s a view from the bathe again into the principle a part of the room.
You may see right here that there’s nonetheless fairly a giant step up from the bathe into the principle a part of the room. However as soon as all the things is completed, there might be a easy transition.
And that is the view from the bathe opening wanting in direction of the self-importance wall…
And right here’s yet another view from the center of the self-importance wall wanting in direction of the bath wall, with the bathe on the left, and the bathroom on the best.
