New Bathroom


The owner here decided after the tile went down he wanted a larger vanity/sink combo and so it turns out, the original plumbing rough will not work once I laid out the new cabinet

The original contractor on this job stopped work in early July due to personal reasons I won't disclose and the owner was on the hunt for somebody to complete it...not usually my bag of tea, but because he is a good friend of a very good friend of mine (the one who referred me) I had to take a look.

The plumbing rough has to be moved for the sink, a new cabinet with shelving and a laundry chute was custom made and needs installation in the shower wet wall alcove area, a new toilet is to be installed, a new recessed medicine cabinet, shower doors, shower valve fixtures, grab bars, robe hooks, a door needs to be shaved, new moldings, light fixture, wall/ceiling finish and some fresh paint.

I bid it T&M and the owner gracefully agreed...he just want's it done at this stage.

Nothing like a little toilet cleaner, windex, rat poison or scrubbing bubbles in your coffee.

That vanity is hideous.

I happen to like Febreze in my coffee. So far I'm 0-2 on that vanity the owner chose...friggin thing was 3K too...Kohler Jute.

It pretty nice in person and is heavy as an anchor...I actually like it...1-2 now.

Re: New Bathroom


Kohler specifies 5/16" lags secure this cabinet and a good quality siliconized acrylic caulk to secure the top so that's what I did.

The faucet being used is a Kohler Elliston 8" widespread with ceramic valves and scratch resistant chrome finish...pretty nice for the money and operationally smooth.

The new plumbing rough is working out well, I just used a couple of full port ball valves as shutoffs with 1/2" male adapters and 12" braided supply.

The sink, faucet, and tiles look great! The vanity doesn't look bad, either.

Is there at least 15" between wall to center of toilet and edge of vanity to center of toilet?

Re: New Bathroom


Min. latrine alcove requirements have been met...just enough room for a little toilet cleaner, windex, rat poison or scrubbing bubbles

I ripped out the 17"comfort height toilet and replaced it with a standard height...same toilet otherwise...installed a new 1/4 turn valve as well while I was in there.

Re: New Bathroom


Seems my masonry threads garner more action than a stupid 60's cabinet thread but it is what it is

Next up is the triple door, reversible, mirrored, medicine cabinet from Kohler's Verdera line.

High quality, anodized aluminum chip free frame, lined with mirrors and adjustable tempered glass shelves complete with your own magnifying mirror and slow close doors.

Recessed mount vs. flush mount saves space and adds a nice custom touch to the install. This is a non loading bearing wall so no header is needed. Cutting that tile out wasn't fast or fun, but it sure saved me some space above the mirror for a new light fixture. I set it flush with the tile and packed out the difference on the wall.

Is that just a standard "grout" blade you used for cutting the tile? I've never had enough faith in one of those to try it

I really have to order some Fein diamonds...this is ceramic tile and it's slow through the glaze , full body porcelain would require diamond for sure.

Re: New Bathroom


So the next step here at the bathroom job is to install the glass doors. The customer ordered Dreamline "Enigma X" last year and has had them sitting under a tarp outside on a skid ever since. I go to open the box and it's completely deteriorated all the way around from being soaking wet. I get to the instructions and they're a moldy mess that I can barely read. After i completely unpackage everything and do a parts check, I'm surprised to see everything in pretty good shape...if only I could read the instructions on the million and one parts that come with it...

No matter, I basically figure everything out with help from my smart phone and begin the installation.

Just so happens my nephew swings by to give me a hand with the 3/8" thick tempered glass panels and says, "they look like they're too small"...As soon as my brain registers what he said, I immediately realized the customer ordered the wrong door a year ago and that I already cut the main glide bar to fit the enclosure. Long story short, these are the wrong height doors and they're not going to work...I called the customer with the bad news and he signed off quick that we need to order the rights ones pronto...his loss unfortunately.

Next up is the shower valve trim, it's keeps getting better I tell ya...I run to my plumbing house to pick up a trim plate and some handles, Moen model "Kingsley", a chrome wall supply elbow and what ever else I need to complete the install and I start. I begin by removing the protective plastic caps over the previously installed Moen #3350 2 function transfer valve and I find the valve is out of plumb by 5/8" of an inch which will surely transfer over to the handles and trim plate. The valve was also off on it's depth setting actually protruding through the wall preventing a flush fit with the trim cover and tile wall. Since everything else was going wrong why not add the drop ear elbows that supply the rain head and handheld were not aligning with the drill holes in the tile....hence, it all had to be ripped out and done again.

To top it all off, I get things to a point where I can turn on the water service and I get a severe drip from the transfer valve body that I had nothing to do with...I pull it out, grease it up and the leak has slowed to a drop every 20 min. or so so I may need to replace a brand new valve stem right out of the gate...not completely unusual, as these things damage very easy if debris is not flushed from the lines or the plumber doesn't pull the cartridges when he's torching close to them.
Anyhow, all the fixtures are now in including the LED Rozin 16" rain head, hand held shower head slide bar and a couple of DMI grab bars.
What color shower do you like? blue is cold, green is warm , red is hot and blinking red is steamy hot...

I installed a Dreamline door for the first time last month. I was pretty pleased with the quality of the hardware.
