This bathroom took about 3.5 weeks, which is longer than it should have, but I really took my time with some of the more intricate detals.


The tile is Daltile SL83, and shower is a Wedi system with Denshield after the first foot, completley sealed up with sikaflex.  Hardware is moen.  I did not set the shower door.


I'm pretty proud of how the custom insets came out.  Had to rip down the bullnose so that the corners would all line up perfectly, but the end result is something I'm proud to put my stamp on.


It includes a complete skim coating of the ceiling after removing a popcorn texture.  Also, a flawless drywall patch on the wall with the mirrors after removing a floating soffit and running new electrical for the sconce lights.  


This job was also my first radiant floor, which made the floor tile more difficult as I stupidly did not use self leveling over it initially.  Also had to run conduit up the side of the house to get a dedicated circuit up there.


The tile alone took nearly 4 days after all was said and done, and make no mistake, that hexagonal border was a pain because it comes in 2'x1' sheets and had to be ripped down into border.


Overall this was a very fun project, getting to pull it all together.

    By the way, I did not paint anything. That was all done by the homeowner.
