I'm new to this forum and this post is documenting the progress of the remodel of my small 2nd floor bathroom and I'm also seeking for advice as I go.
As you can see on the images below the bathroom was outdated, but that alone didn't call for a remodel. Some of the tiles came off the wall, the vinyl floor started peeling up and mainly we had some plumbing issues.
(In short, the shower drain didn't work but the drain pipe was not clogged. Same issue appeared to the sink a while later. I used a 7 foot inspection camera and pushed it down the shower drain - nothing found.) So while I am tearing everything down I will investigate this issue further and maybe someone is able to help.
Goal: The tub will remain in the current location, I will be tiling around the shower/tub walls using backer board and waterproof sealer (Don't know the name of that) - or can I just tape and thinset the seams?
My wife wants to swap sink and toilet position and based on the subfloor board direction the floor joists seem to work in my favor. I will post pictures once I have the floor opened up. But having a vanity in the right corner and then the toilet makes much more sense space-wise.
If you wondered. The door in the back actually leads to the attic - no idea why you want to access the attic through the bathroom but that's how they build this old house. Best explanation: the steps leading up to the attic are right on top of the steps leading up from the 1st to the 2nd floor.
Alright, enough of this... I will post pictures and I am open to suggestions.
