Bathroom Shower Install Preparations

by on Sep.28, 2010, under Drywall


After the cement board was laid down, the next step was to fit the shower into place.  As things usually go, we had to make some modifications.
We had built the bathroom to be able to put in a full 5′ tub/shower.  At some point, we decided that we would rather have just a shower, and that we liked the one we had in the shed.  So we bought a very similar one and brought it up.  This unit is only 4′ wide, so we had to build an end wall for the modern shower design unit for our home.  This left a very narrow “closet” space next the the shower, but we will deal with that later.  Maybe a pullout unit on slides.

Anyway, here is the wall after the drywall was hung, but before finishing it:

Drywall Work at the LittleHouse

by on Jul.09, 2010, under Drywall

I went up over the 4th of July weekend to try to get the drywall work done in the LittleHouse Bathroom.  I made pretty good progress, and learned some things that will come in handy as we continue the drywalling of the house.

Starting to Drywall the Littlehouse

by on Jul.07, 2010, under Drywall

So we’ve come to the stage where we need to finish the walls in the bathroom before we install the facilities.

Tara & I came up in mid-May to start on the Drywall for the bathroom.
Before we could install any drywall, I needed to finish a couple of electrical projects in there.  The first was the bathroom fan.  The light did not turn on when the switch was thrown, although the fan did work properly.  A little investigation found a neutral wire disconnected.  It must have been stuffed up into the assembly where I couldn’t see it when I first installed the fixture.

After connecting the neutral wire, the light started working.
