    Looks awesome, after scrolling through the picture's my first thought was 'this guy definately needs to remodel his bath'

    I hope you end up with a killer bathroom!

    Thanks gking!

    Here's a few pics of the floor. Got the subfloor finished today. Before doing that I had to bring the 1" pex lines upstairs....and also hook up my Fleck 5800 Coconut shell carbon filter for chlorine removal........and had to remove the existing 3/4" pex lines.........

    So now I'm ready to finish framing my false wall for the vanity........and then I can finish bringing the water lines .....and can frame out the bathtub.

    Of course I had to deal with this damn crazy freezing temps we just had here in NY but thankfully that's over.........

    Framed the false wall. I need to add some blocking for the drop ears for the toilet and the vanity water lines.

    Getting there. Went to install the bathtub and found out the exterior wall is 2" off plumb at the top. So I ended up sistering the entire wall with 2x3.

    I also picked up a kit (was delivered) from tubmount.com. I was finding it literally impossible to install the tub on the ledger because the tub must be warped. The ledger is level on (2) of the 2x4 (one long side, one short side) but I couldn't get the tub to sit on the ledger level. Perhaps the tub is a little warped.

    Ended up putting in some Roxul comfort 2x4 batting and still need to finish framing for the tub. I also have to figure out if I am going to move the door. The old frame left a few inches with a 30" tub but now with the 32" there might not be enough room for symmetrical casing around the door. And if I move the door, I'm going to have to move the toilet flange. Argh!
