    So I noticed there we a few threads with bathroom remodel as the title so I added my username. I started my bathroom remodel, the one I redeemed the wet tile saw. When it comes to this type of remodel I am a DIYer except for any electrical. I am open to advice, suggestions and opinions. And I am sure I will have questions along the way. Here are a few pictures of the demo I did today.

    Ok so it only let me upload the first 2 pictures of the before.

    Are you gutting and re-doing the entire bath or just the shower area?

    Looks like you got the right idea Tony. Figuring out where demo starts/stops can be a real money saver.

    Good start Tony, You are working in a smaller room to reno than the one I posted up that I did last year.
    I don’t know about you, but me at times I got frustrated working in such a small space. @r-ice kept asking to assist me but I kept telling him that there is no room for 2 people to maneuver in there.

    What all do you plan to do? Sometimes getting started is the hard part and you have done that. Lots of help here if you need it.

    @TonyG looking good, i did not see a bulldog or demo hammer in the picture, I thought you had one, I use the typical tools as you are using also, at times I rent one out if the job is a fairly large size room.
    looks like its a lower level washroom ? are you going to be using your new tile saw 🙂

    lol we could’ve taken turns, one in and one out.
    eventually if we have time, i may put in the shower and washroom downstairs where everything is roughed.

    The whole bath I just started with the shower area because I was tired of looking at it. lol.

    Retile the floor and shower, replace the toilet, sink, and vanity. Add a Fan, light, heater combo.

    I didn’t use a bulldog, I beat around the edges with my hammer and than I pulled off big sections of tile and backer board all at once and carried them out. I do plan on using the tile saw, this is the project I redeemed it for lol.

    There are demo hammer bit designed to make tile demolition easier. They just lift the tiles, oftentimes without even breaking it into many pieces.

    Nice work Tony! Demo is always fun, but a back breaker. Are you going to do anything with the giant window in the shower? I’ve seen them many times before, but I’d feel a bit weird showering there.

    Good start. Can’t wait to see the tile.

    I am not a seasoned pro when it comes to this stuff lol.

    I am thinking about replacing it with a more energy efficient one but that is about it. It will stay in the same place and the same size and everything.

    lol Yep got a ear full from my wife too! But in my defense I told her I was going to start as soon as her sister that was staying with us while she was on vacation left.
