Mid-Bathroom Mess

I could tell you are just dying to know what is happening with my shower reno!

Let’s just say, it didn’t all go as planned.

This is what it looks like right at this very moment.

Oh, my.

In the meantime, I thought I’d share the links I’ve found informative and helpful.

This one from Lowe’s is great, although scoring and snapping the cement board is not as easy as they make it out to be.

This guy has a whole series on Youtube that is long, but VERY helpful. Especially about not putting up the plastic between layers. When I was tearing the walls down, the wall that had plastic between the insulation and the greenboard practically crumbled with one hit because it was wet and moldy.

My uncle told me about these when I asked him how I should retrofit the plumbing to install our new shower faucet and head. I already knew about Pex pipe from my father-in-law, and these SharkBite fittings made the transition from copper pipe to Pex sooooo easy.

We’ll be back at it this week finishing up the cement board and getting the waterproofing done so (hopefully, fingers crossed) we can tile Saturday. We’ll see how it goes.

Thanks for stopping by!
