One Room Challenge: Master Bath Week Two
It's week two of the One Room Challenge!
Be warned: this post is basically a photo dump of all the ugliest and most tedious parts of our bathroom renovation. If you skip it and check back in next week, that's FINE. If you're a glutton for punishment or you're planning to DIY a bathroom soon, then let's proceed.
As I mentioned last week, part of our bathroom project involves doubling the footprint of our shower. It was formerly 2.5' X 3', and it's now 5' X 3'. We used a simple pony wall to extend one side.
Patrick built the wall using 2X4s and his framing nailer, checking for plumb, level, and square as he went along.
We actually ended up needing to go back and redo this portion of the installation, because we opted to go with copper stub outs. I was nervous that running the tubing through the abrasive backer board could eventually lead to leaks. I'll describe that more in my post on our PEX install.

Thanks for following along!
PS: We did start tiling last night, and it's looking so good! Unfortunately, there's a bit of a learning curve, so I spent an hour on my hands and knees scraping excess thinset out of the cracks with a plastic fork. On the bright side, it was my first solo contribution to the room, so Patrick can no longer claim to have done it all by himself.
