anatomy of a bathroom reno
After completing demolition, I installed cement board above the tub surround to prepare for tile installation. You can see the first sheet on the bulkhead is installed prior to the wall sheet going up.
In the next photo, you can see that I have added a dura-vent to facilitate proper airflow from the soffit area to the attic. The next step would be to insulate and install a vapour barrier.
Another important step in this project was to inspect the existing walls for straightness. In this case, a drainpipe behind the drywall was pushing the drywall out, creating a bow in the wall. This bow would have been problematic for the installation of the new vanity. I solved this problem by removing and shaving the drywall so that the vanity can now be installed flush with the wall.
