So I moved into my house 2 years ago and the upstairs bathroom has been an eyesore since I bought the place. So I figured its time to remodel. So here are some pics....

This is how it was.....




A friend and myself demo'ing





And how it sits right nnow....










Next up is Paint, Toliet install, Vanity (purchase and install) and then reinstall the newly painted trim!

And I have done everything but the mudding, as that shit is HARD.

Looking back I would have done some things differently, bu overall I like the look and feel so far.

I would post my project work, but it doesn't belong in the same thread as @Great White Drake 's project.

Bar cabinets in and tile almost done. Got the cabinets from hobo 16% off sale 3 weeks ago for $420. Home Depot wanted the same price for unfinished. The space in between cabinets is for my mini fridge.

So the master closet light hasn't worked since we moved in a year ago. GF uses it not me so wasn't quite a priority. It had power but my guess was the neutral for it wasn't hooked up correctly somewhere.

Enter today where I am replacing the broken GFCI in the bathroom only our guests use. I find a loose neutral barely hooked up. Tighten up the neutral to the gfci and what do you know the closet light in our master bedroom works. +10 points to me.

Ended up rewiring it so the lights and fan would be hooked to the GFCI just in case and the closet light is left out of that circuit One more project off the huge list.

Took out the maze of water pipes with half of them not even going to the old single house filter and old water softener. Ripped it all out. The old set up from the previous owners was a train wreck.

Added the three filters, new water softener and I also added a valve to drain the entire house when I need to work on plumbing. Added a valve on the front end and a valve on the back end of the filters so as to simply turn off the waiter supply and isolate the filters for less mess. The house drain works awesome. Especially when I've been reworking the plumbing in the two upstairs bathrooms. It sure empties the lines nicely as I have not had any issues with soldering and left over water in the pipes. Also with the three filters and new softener. No more water stains and calcium deposits.





I routed the water softener and house drain into the injector pump for the basement bathroom since the sump pump is on the other side of the basement.
