JW to build a Spa-like Master Bathroom in Naperville, IL
August 29, 2013
We've started work on Dan & Candice Richardson's master bathroom. We will be removing all of the tiles throughout the bathroom. we will be removing and installing both vanities - one on each side of the tub. We will be installing travertine tiles throughout the master bathroom.
We will be enlarging the size of the sower, both in width & height, adding can lights in the cathedral ceiling, one each on side of the bath skylights and inside the shower as well. We will also install new plumbing in the shower to accomodate the homeowner's desires for a spa-like bathroom.
Here are a couple of pictures of day 1 of tear-out.

Today, we enlarged the shower size, by removing a vacant wall. We had found that there was a laundry shute in the vacant area. The Richardsons were OK with us removing the shute completely, which gave us the ability to expand the shower an extra 2 ft. and we removed the soffit which gave us an extra foot and a half of headroom. We installed two 4" mini shower cans and we installed LED in the cans to increase te brigtness of the shower.
On the primary wall of the shower, we framed out a shower niche, roughly a foot and a half by 3 ft. After installing new rough plumbing fictures, we closed off the shower with permabase & waterproofed the shower prior to tile installation.

The Richardsons had picked out light walnut bucak polished travertine tile for the shower walls with the tub deck and surround along with a larger sized light walnut bucak for the floor. We used a glass mosaic for a linear inlay around the tub area and full sheet for the back of the shower niche.

We are back at the Richardsons for the finishing touches of their bathroom remodeling project. We got dark cherry cabinets installed with granite countertops, new light fictures on each side of the mirror and we purchased new mirror frames to go around the existing mirrors to give it a brand new look. We will be posting pictures of the new bathroom soon.
