    one thing id recommend is measuring the width of your shower tiles before setting the height of your niche so your tile line is flush with your niche. Gives it that pro look. Also recommend making the plywood surface slightly damp before putting the mortar on, helps with the bond. Awesome video, extremely informative

  • Desire Baker

    I noticed you struggled a bit with the grout on the walls. Here’s a tip for anyone grouting anything anytime soon. Your grout should roughly be the consistency of pancake batter. Not too runny like crepes and sloppy, but not as dry as say cookie dough either. It will make application a breeze, it’ll fill literally ever little nook and cranny without having to force it in there, and despite the thinner consistency it doesn’t take any longer to dry. If your grout gets too thick, because it does dry out after a while, just add a little bit more water, mix thoroughly, and continue. I should know, I renovated my entire first house that we bought from top to bottom, and there was a lot of tiling. I spent more time on my knees than a lady of the night. Also, quick question, why do so many youtubers use what seems to be a cement type mixture for tiling when you could just get a big bucket of tile glue ready mixed and be done with it? Or is that just in Europe? I mean I assume America sells that in their home improvement stores too right? And does no one back butter their tiles? I mean you don’t need to for those little mosaic tiles (nice choice by the way, love those!) but anything that isn’t on a mesh should be back buttered. Or am I being overly critical? That’s just how I was taught to do it. That way, you can compensate for any bowing that may be present in your drywall, which is pretty much always (I’ve yet to find a truly square wall in a house), and make it look really nice and tidy. Just some tips for those who might be thinking about redoing a bathroom or just an accent backsplash in the kitchen. Unless you use mosaic tiles, back butter those tiles, you can thank me later 😉

    Speaking from experience: shark-bite fittings on PEX are a bad idea. I manage a residential maintenance shop and I've had dozens of shark-bite fittings leak. Compression ring style fittings are definitely more reliable.

    Like in the first video, most of this would not fly with code or insurance in Norway. The electrical work would need to be done by an electrician (unless it has a plug you are not allowed to do it yourself). And the wet zone remod (tiles yes, membranes no) would have to be done by someone with wet room certification for insurance to cover any potential water damage. Is this different in the US (or in separate states)?

      Putting the texture in the cement helps give tile or whatever a much better grip, coverage and contact than if it were smooth.

    You missed a lot of important detail that will get the average DIYer in trouble for instance, taking a lot of time to ensure the first course of tile in the shower is perfectly level. However, thank you for the video.

    I simply watch these videos for fun but,
    Why does the saw need water In order to function?
    (I know nothing about tools, but it must suck using water when it’s cold outside)

    • FluffyTheGryphon
      FluffyTheGryphon Month ago

      Water keeps the blade cool, allowing it to cut more effectively and last longer and the water also keeps dust down, which can be dangerous to breathe in.

    Meh, its alright but i certainly wouldn't choose round or hex shape tiles. Also american electrics e.g. fittings and how they have to be off/next to a stud to be secured in place is weird... At least to me (from the UK). The rest is alright. Nice shower, not keen on the silver square waste though. Also for those wondering PEX in the UK is called poly pipe (short for POLYBUTYLENE PIPE) it's alright i suppose, fairly reliable but where possible i would always go ahead and learn soldering to do some nice copper piping.

    Have you tried dipping the brush in water before adding the texture to the ceiling? I used that method when texturing the plaster on my living room ceiling... It might make it easier for you. Theoretically speaking it softens the texture and makes the draw off slightly bigger which should make the 'less textured more shaped' style of texturing you are looking for.

  • Scott Smith

    Iv done many many showers and always before u put mud or derock u always put ice and water shield down first. It’s key because in ten years if there is any leak it will get behind the wall then mold comes and u gotta re do it. Trust me iv had to tear out many showers because the foundation is not right. The last shower I did cost 65 thousand dollars. For 1 bathroom. The shower looks great man keep up the great work.

    Awesome Job! My wife and I gutted our entire downstairs after a water leak in July last year and are in the middle of putting it back together ourselves. Insurance is paying for all of the floor to be replaced but everything else is on us (as it should be :)). I wish I had thought to record our demo and progress of the rebuild so far. Our home was a commercial property built in the 1940's and converted to residential in 1995. We've ran into a lot of unique challenges along the way.

    one thing to note - if you put down thinset on non waterproof floor board, it WILL buckle after time. I ALWAYS used concrete board first and on floor, tile too. It's and extra step but your flooring will never squeek or crack.

    great video! the ceiling pattern looks like it was a real pain to match but it looked like your mud was a little to thick and thats why you had so much texture

  • Jack Frusty
    Jack Frusty Month ago

    It looked like you left out some waterproofing along the lower kerdi board joint on the drain side of the shower. Not a big issue but would have been nice to see that waterproofed. It seems you also covered up the HVAC vent with the tub. Even though the tub is on stands, it would have been better to move the vent (perhaps to the adjacent wall) for air circulation in the room which would provide increased air flow for the shower fan. Also this would avoid having condensate dripping from the tub into the duct work. Would be good to insulate the floor as well since it seems to be directly over the garage. Without that thermal break you essentially have a warm room over an exterior floor, unless your garage is fully insulated (including a thermal door). Additionally there may be concern for exhaust gases rising from the garage into the bathroom. So glad you didn't cut into the joist for the shower drain, not sure what the exact code is for that, but laminating would have been a pain. While it is your bathroom and all that, imo the wall tile grout is too dark giving a dirty appearance depending on the lighting of the area. It seemed like the bluetooth speaker only works when the fan isn't running. Would be great if they worked at the same time so you can run the fan and listen to music while taking a shower. Overall it looks like you did some good work. Congrats on the new bathroom.

    Textured ceiling in a bathroom is the devil. At some point in the future, *something* will happen and your drying solution (bathroom fan) will lose effectiveness. And now you have stuff growing in the texture. Even if you're not making a full "wet room" bathroom, use some of their techniques for making the room easy to clean.

    Great videos but next time you put in a soaking tub, make sure it's large enough for a modern adult to fit in. As someone looking to buy a home, a big annoyance is how many bathrooms boast being recently remodeled, but it didn't get updated to include things like new outlets and breakers for modern electronics and a tub that accommodates people over 5ft tall. Thanks ofr the video, learned a lot.
