Just looking for some advice on the best order to redo stuff in the
bathroom. I am looking at a pretty major make-over, all new fixtures tub
toilet vanity etc... I only have the one bathroom so time will be of the
essence. What would be the best order to do things in to avoid any major
problems? Any hints on stuff that may come up that a rookie like myself
Any help is appreciated.
Uh, tub/shower goes in 2nd, right after the bare wood is replaced/reframed
as needed. The backerboard or sheetrock overlaps the tub or shower
enclosure, and the finish floor butts up to it. Toilet goes in pretty much
LAST, since the finish floor goes under it, and it is awful hard to paint
behind it. I recommend putting vanity over finish floor personally, so the
inevitable floods don't instantly go into subfloor. And if you are putting
in vinyl, it is one less thing to cut around.
If you only have the one can, forget about this as a DIY. Hire it out when
you can get people off to visit relatives or to a motel for a couple 3 days.
New tub too?? That alone means a complete tear down.
New floor too??
I can see weeks and weeks of tile work, etc. before
anything is ready to go back together.
You're gonna need a Porta Potty or a very considerate neighbor.
I suggest a much more detailed plan first...
