2002 Best Bath Remodel Over $50,000

 

This project is the master bath portion of a master suite remodel in a 1920s home. During the 80 year life of the home a great deal of settling had taken place. Load bearing walls were placed mid span between and parallel to the floor joist causing the hardwood floors to buckle, and making almost every work area out of square and plumb. For the tub surround construction they used steel stud framing and flexible track to ease the construction of the radius area. Using a 6 foot dolly (I had one of those when I was single) they hauled the 400 pound tub unit up two flights of stairs. The radiant hot water heating element was located behind the original tub which had to be addresses to accommodate the new tub unit. To do this a marble grill was placed at the far side of the tub surround and a fan motor with thermostat placed in a wood grill at the opposite end of the surround thus circulating the air through the surround. The client now has a comfortable master suite that satisfies both function and visual interest. As a result of their success with this project, they have been invited back to remodel more of the home.
