Nice. I like the 1/2 wall separating the pottie from the sink area. We did the same with my daughter's bathroom.

Very very nice job! Clean, well thought out, great materials!!!! I can suggest one thing, and one thing only, get the GE Reveal bulbs for the fixtures. They make a TON of difference. We have them everywhere, and I mean everywhere. They make everything seem "right".

Thank you very much! We (Owner and I) definetely put a lot of thought and planning in to this job w/ regard to the layout and type of materials.

I did have one mishap though. When I installed the frameless glass doors one of them EXPLODED on me. Not fun! [img]../images/emoticons/surprise.gif[/img]

I didn't want questions to take away from my first response.

So is that a solar tube installed?
Does the cabinet match the radius of the counter top? Did you make the cabinet yourself?
I know you have the full length mirror opposite the vanity, but will you not be installing mirror about the vessels?
So is that a heat lamp w/ vent?
How did the quarter round come about?

1. No solar tube.

2. Vanity radius matches Crema Marfil top.

3. Vanity was purchased online by Owner.

4. Mirror, by Owner is not here yet.

5. She wanted the 1/4 round to accent the floor.

Additionally, floor is heated by Suntouch Floor Warming System. [img]../images/emoticons/thumbsup.gif[/img]

WOW! Justmore, you do good work for a kid right off the farm.

Seriously tho, that is the best looking re-model Iíve seen. Talk about color management, just perfect.

The hardest re-models are small bathrooms.....You earned a huge gold star.

Wow, Suntouch Floor Warming System......nice touch!

So what's that bathroom, 5' x 12'?
So all walls and ceiling is painted the same colour, right?

Hey, where's the bathroom door? I know with my bathroom reno the door was one of the last things to go on.

Nice work on the entire job! Was wondering how you removed the old tub? Mine is cast iron. And did you leave the drain in the same place when you put in the shower?

Generally when one does a make over at this level one moves the drain to the center of the shower stall, itís just a given. Not all the time, but a lot of the time fixtures are moved around in the bathroom, therefore re-plumbing of the fixtures is needed any ways....to do a little one might as well do it all. In some cases but not all, it is the lack of performance of the plumbing system in the first place which causes people to remodel their bathrooms. Therefore in these cases it is automatic to change out all of the bathrooms plumbing requirements. The customer feels the bill is just what it is.....it just has to be done and thatís all there is to it. Could you image how bad you would feel if you remodeled your bathroom to Just1moreís caliber only to find out afterwards the plumbing still sucks! Forget feelings, consider the costs!

But back to your question, does the drain have to be moved? Iím no expert on plumbing codes, but Iíve never heard of a code which requires the shower stall drain be located in the center of the stall! I know Iíve never seen a pre-formed stall base that has the drain in any other location then the center, but that doesnít mean a hill of beans when one is forming their own base.

If I were to be giving you an opinion one way or the other, Iíd say in the center is better.......less distance for the water to travel to reach the floor to drain, less chance of standing water after a shower has been taken. Grout lines will hold small amounts of water.

How do you move a cast iron bathtub? Two good men with strong backs will do nicely, that or 3 general duty guys will do. They are heavy, but not that heavy.

It's a pocket door [img]../images/emoticons/thumbsup.gif[/img]

Butterone,

Depending on what level of the house the tub is on, it is sometimes easier to take a "Sledge-O-Matic" to those cast iron tubs. The tub in this bathroom was steel (light).
