Jack & Jill Bathroom Remodel – Getting Started!

Jack & Jill Bathroom Remodel – Getting Started!

 

If you’ve been following along with the drama of our kid’s bathroom, you know that we had a leak into our dining room, and we’ve got a plan to remodel the bathroom & fix the problems so we can get our house back together.  Since then, we’ve done some of the work!

kids-bathroom-getting-started
We started a couple of weeks ago by having our plumber come over and move some plumbing lines, cap valves, and help us unhook the tub.  Once that was done, we could finish our demo.  We removed all of the cabinets, the toilet, the tub and the floor from the bathroom, so that we were left with the plywood subfloor, the drywall, and the studs around the shower.  Talk about a blank slate!

***If you’ve just eaten, you might want to skip the next two pictures.  Don’t say I didn’t warn you. ***

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

***Seriously, its gross.***

Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

I don’t remember if I told you this or not, but when this all happened, we filed a claim with the Home Warranty Company (American Home Shield, if you’re not interested).  They sent out a “plumber” who determined that the uneven subfloor was the root cause of the leak, not the plumbing & because of that AHS decided not to cover the claim.  When our plumber was here, we pulled up the toilet and removed the remaining tiles & concrete board, and found out that the root cause of the leak was actually the toilet flange.  See, the toilet flange was originally laid too low for the tile floor, so the wax ring was never able to seal.  Basically, the toilet has been leaking slowly for the 20 years since the house was built.

You hear that?  AHS was WRONG.  They should have covered the claim because it was due to plumbing, not carpentry.  I called them and told them that. They didn’t seem to care too much, but they credited me a service call ($100 value).  Whatever.

kids-bathroom-getting-started
When we removed the flange, which was rusted and literally flaked away, we saw massive wood rot.  Since we cut out some drywall in the dining room ceiling to inspect, you could actually see all the way down to the dining room from the rotted holes under where the toilet was.  The blue in that picture above is the tarp covering my china cabinet downstairs!  So basically, there was nothing holding the toilet up but concrete backerboard.  Nice.

kids-bathroom-getting-started
Anyway, the first order of business was to remove the rotted part of the subfloor.  Doug did that with our circular saw set at a depth of 3/4″.

kids-bathroom-getting-started

He built some boxes with 2x4s to secure to the floor joists so that we’d have something to attach the new floor to.

kids-bathroom-getting-started
Then, we replaced it with a new piece of subfloor using our new framing nail gun.  We picked up a sheet at Lowe’s for about $30.  We didn’t need a full sheet, but we can use the rest in the future.  There are several spots upstairs where the floor squeaks.

I finished the wall & ceiling repairs, primed, textured and painted.  Like the drywall, the texturing was intimidating, but I figured it out after a little practice.  I’ll do a post on that soon.  It was a little tricky, and I learned some tips along the way.  Just having the walls painted and the light fixtures back up was nice. It was like a formal transition between the demo/fixing phase into the rebuilding/putting back together phase of the remodel.  I don’t have any pictures yet, because I had to fix some spots int the drywall, and I need to retexture them and paint the whole thing.

Before we can really get going on rebuilding this bathroom, we need the bathtub. Once we get that, we’ll know the footprint for the floor.  We decided to wait until today to order the Bathtub & the Toilet, so we could get 5% Cash Back during the Discover Card Cash Back Home Improvement Bonus that started today.  Hopefully, the tub shows up by early next week, so we can get started on the floor & get the toilet installed.

chosen-cabinet-paint-samples
We’ve been pretty busy the last two weeks, so waiting to order the tub and toilet was fine.  Now, we’re anxious to get this bathroom back in order.  We’re going to go pick up the cabinets this weekend, I’ve started getting quotes on quartz countertops, and I need to order the doors & drawer fronts.  We decided to do custom doors & drawer fronts from Scherr’s, since they make them with all of the correct boring for IKEA cabinets.  I’m just going to go with a solid wood shaker style, which will look awesome after I’ve used my Critter Paint Sprayer to paint them in our chosen colors of Benjamin Moore Hale Navy & Gypsy Pink.

I’d really love to get this bathroom finished before the kids start school.  We’re hitting up the Pottery Barn Outlet next week, so I can get new towels and check out the accessories to make this bathroom look awesome!

Have you tiled before?  Have any tips?  We’re excited to get started, but nervous because we haven’t done it before.  Tell us what you know in the comments, or just leave us an encouraging note!
