Foto Story Friday #122- shower remodel

In August we remodeled our shower.  it was in major need .......
We had some nasty mold growing in there.  We also put in a fan/vent to help with the moisture.
First we had to get all the nasty stuff out.
(sorry some of these are not the best quality...) We put up some concrete board around the shower area.
Painted it with some moisture barrier stuff.
Since that is our only shower, we needed to work fast and hard..... no shower means washing my hair in the kitchen sink! :)
Measure twice and cut once.....
Our first tile job....
Clean up day 2
Mix up the grout.
Clean up day 3
Finally sealing the grout!
We had to use the shower at the in-laws for the few days it took to re-do the shower.  It is SO nice now that it is finished though!

Great project! And yeah, just why does there seem to be no ventilation in bathrooms? We've had the same experience.

Steph said...

Looks like it turned out beautiful! :)

Love that rule about measuring twice : ) Very good! I am glad it is all done. I can't remember the last time I washed my hair in the sink. You sure look pretty while you are doing it though :)

Kat said...

Measure twice cut once. That is what my husband told the doc when my boys were being circumsized. Egad.

Yay for a new shower! I need to see the final product. :)

Keeley said...

What a great photo story! I love how it came out. Phew! Great rewards for huge amounts of work.

Emily said...

Wow. The finished product looks great! I'm sure you're happy to have a shower again and a mold-free one at that!

Krystyn said...
