add furring strips to the entire wall
Then I will do the wall where the pluming hides and add water shut off valves and switch to pex.
Do theses furring strips go across the studs or vertically?

Re: My Bathroom Project

Good day, So I tried to dry fit the tub and it turned out that the tub landing spot is a bit narrower, see the picture, than the tub 31" on widest corners. sub1.jpg Can I still cut out a 1.25" stripe from the sub floor ?

Re: Sewer Gas Smell in guest bath

The only way for gases to leak back into your bathroom IMHO is thru drain piping. Check this link: https://structuretech1.com/plumbing-traps-2/
Do you have that water lock in the trap?

Re: Maax Fiberglass or Mirolin Acrylic Tub Surround

And what is a narrow tub? Right now we have 59x29 tub. The inner width in the middle is 24", depth around 13-14". Is Essence about the same dimensions? Thanks)))

Re: Maax Fiberglass or Mirolin Acrylic Tub Surround

I am choosing between Mirolin Belaire vs MAAX Essence (60x30")
I know tile is cooler looking finish, but variety of tiles leaves much to be desired.
Everything is white or grey.

Maax Fiberglass or Mirolin Acrylic Tub Surround

Hi,
I am planning to reno our mold infested bathroom. And I need a second opinion.
It is 300 CAD difference. Here in Mb. Let's say it is not critical. Which is easier to DIY install and later, have better sell value? We are going to live 5 to 8 years longer in this house.

Regards,
Ruzty
