Bath remodel – Introduction

We have embarked on a Guest bathroom remodel project recently. The time has come for the builder quality bathroom to go. A few design conderations – more efficient use of space, get more light into the bathroom, use durable materials, upgrade the bath technology (can’t help it – I am a techie). The plan is to take out everything to the studs and rebuild with a pedestal sink, recessed medicine cabinet, tiled-in shower and a fixed block window while rearranging the layout and adding touches of upscale and luxury.

The bathroom is downstairs – plenty crawlspace access. So lot of the roughin plumbing should be easy.

Our deadline is end of July. We are having company the 2nd week of August so there is a fixed deadline – puts pressure to stay on course. Here is the planned schedule. I estimate that there is an element of around 30% risk of slippage – Project Mgmt skills coming handy.

Week 0: Jun 3 – Jun 9: Planning and researching

Week 1: Jun 10 – Jun 16: Demolition and Roughin

Week 2: Jun 17 – Jun 23: Framing and Electrical

Week 3: Jun 24 – Jun 30: Drywall and Masonary

Week 4: Jul 1 – Jul 6: Shower and Tiles

Week 5: Jul 7 – Jul 13: Shower and Tiles continued

Week 6: Jul 14 – Jul 20: Trim out

Week 7: Jul 21 – Jul 27: Finishing and Painting

Week 8: Jul 28 – Aug 4 Punch list

Your comments, advice is very welcome. This is our first bathroom remodel project so bear with us as we are learning as we go.

    Do you have a buget in mind for this and do you do that before you plan so you can plan the money or do you plan it first and then find the money? I usely plan by how much money i have to spend but I hear people do it the other way too.

    Thanks for the post nice site

    A master bathroom remodel project can be an exciting venture to undertake. Unlike the main bathroom, the master bathroom is not usually used by the entire household or by guests. This means it can be set up to be a more intimate setting and personalized theme. The design and layout of your master bathroom can be fully customized to meet your specific needs. You can make it very personal and the design does not even have to follow the decorating theme of the rest of the house.
