Excellent job young Jedi! I could barely read a tape measure at 18, major kudos to you. I only noticed 1 thing that may lead to problems down the road.

Re: Parents Custom Master Bath


It's PINK


Im sorry that was incensitive. But I grew up in one of those all pink bathrooms with the all pink tile and tub and sink and counters and tp holder...and and. I have a predisposition to disliking pink. It does contrast with that wainscotting very nicely though.

Well before I jump the gun, I'll ask this first. Did you use a tile ready pan in the shower? Or was it formed/poured?

Ha it's ok, it's actually a light purple, could never do the pink.

Re: Parents Custom Master Bath


oh, well then you should be ok. I was concerned with the wall tile being laid before the floor was laid, but I've seen it done both ways on the tile ready pans.
Which brand of tile ready pan did you use? I've only used them 2x's and that was several years ago, I suspect they've come a long way since then. I have a buddy who is an absolute magician with the dry pack....so I don't bother with pans any longer.

On a side note. If you truly are only 18 and did that nice of a job, you will have a VERY prosperous future ahead of you. You clearly have a knack for the details. Stick to the baths and kitchens and you will earn a very comfortable living doing something you enjoy!

Nice work man. Good to see your using the correct methods and products. Most people double/triple your age have trouble doing work like that. Stick around and you could learn a lot more from the guys on here.

Re: Parents Custom Master Bath


I didn't see it in any pictures, but did you use a VB behind the cement board?

Tile Redi pan:


Schluter Pan:


There's a big difference between the two.

Why would the order make any difference regardless of pan material?

I never use a VB behind a shower wall. For insulation, it's either cellulose or unfaced fiberglass.

Very true, it shouldn't. The floor should be laid before the bottom course regardless. I'd never heard of Schluter pans.
The Redi pan you have pictured is what I have used in the past didn't care for it.
