creating more real estate by removing the mud set as well as the tile.

Rough-in complete. Tub installed. shower body installed. Time to tile

30W60St bathtub to shower

Installing a shower where a bathtub used to be requires a change from 1.5″ drain to a 2″ drain, and a $1500 filing fee. In order to change the drain we need to break the ceiling of the downstairs neighbor’s apartment. We also uncovered an electrical violation from the neighbor’s bathroom job – sloppy splices, uncovered junction box, etc.

A Light in the Shower

Here’s a cheap and easy Castle Village upgrade to the 6 line guest bathroom. A sorely needed light in these dark showers wired to a double rocker switch. Also a new sink, faucet, toilet, medicine cabinet, light, pipe insulation, re-grout, paint, and new Carrera marble saddle.
