This task included entirely renovating a basement bathroom / laundry room in a house that is 111-year-old St. Paul, MN. This task posed many different problems typical in taking care of older domiciles. The existing walk-in tile shower was defectively damaged as a result of moisture and dampness problems. The dryer have been illegally vented having a make shift accordion style plastic vent presenting a dangerous fire risk. The area possessed a non-functioning electric wall surface heater made to heat up the area. a layout that is awkward utilising the area hard.
Due to the chronilogical age of the homely home we recognized we’d be served with a good amount of shocks once construction started. We decided it might make more feeling to demolish the space right down to the bare studs and foundation to show a better notion of our situation. The bare walls exposed outdated plumbing that is galvanized some cracks into the foundation and a concealed screen that were covered.
The next thing when you look at the project would be to have our plumber go some drains, ports and water lines to support the room layout that is new. Using the brand brand new plumbing work set up we had 12,000 pounds of brand new concrete poured to generate a floor foundation that is new. Brand brand New 2?6 outside walls, 2?4 interior walls and 3’ x 3’shower had been framed to make the room that is new. Our electrician visited the website and installed the rough wiring that is electrical outlets, lighting, warming chords, fan and switches. The external walls had been sprayed with foam insulation to help keep the toilet warmer.
