In my previous posts I already asked about the order in which to carry
out certain tasks, but now I'm getting contractors who want to do
stuff that I think another contractor ought to do because it comes
later. So I wanted to get your opinion on the order in slightly finer
detail. I'm going for a stand up tiled shower with tile on the wall in
the shower area and frameless glass. I'm installing a wetbed on the
floor and wonderboard on the walls. I'm heating my tiles with NuHeat.
Let's assume that the bathroom is gutted and that the wiring is done.
The remaining tasks that I need help sorting are (there other tasks
whose order I think is straightforward so I left them out):
a. Upgrading the drains and the water lines
b. Installing the rough-in valve for the shower set
c. Building the curb for the frameless glass.
d. Installing the shower pan (is it the same as the shower liner?)
e. Laying down the wet bed
f. Laying down the tile heating mats (hooking them into the electrical
g. Installing the floor tile
h. Putting up wonderboard
i. Installing the wall tile. Installing the grout. (One contractor
claims that priming and painting comes before the grouting of the wall
tile. Does that make sense?)
j. Drywall in the rest of the bathroom
k. Prime and paint approapriate areas
Many thanks in advaince!
