One of the great features of our master bathroom is under floor heating. We are using the Schluter Dietra Heat system. This consists of an uncoupling membrane (The orange dimpled mat). The dimples hold in the electric heating wires while protecting them from damage.
And then comes the tile.
Opps, I guess I got myself stuck into a corner.:-)These beautiful large format tiles will continue up the wall behind the toilet and vanity. There will also be a line of small river rock going across the wall.
Looks like we are getting a few days of nice weather so finally the stucco guys can finish up. With all the windows and doors protected the spraying fun began. It is quite a transformation.
We are very pleased with the color and so glad that it is finally done. It was beginning to look like our house might have to be surrounded by scaffolding until next summer. This break in the weather is just what we needed. I think you will agree, the result is pretty spectacular.
We have this interesting niche space between the pantry and the water heater housing, lots of neat curves, shapes and shadows. With the built-in bookshelf there is space for our cookbooks. Then with the $20 Habitat ReStore 3 drawer cabinet installed, we now have a place to keep paperwork and charge phones (notice the integrated charger and outlet), and of course the requisite junk drawer. We also installed this cool LED wall sconce to light up the space.
We now have our rough-in electrical done for the master bathroom.This includes the light and vent fan switch locations and outlets. The vent fan is installed in the ceiling. There will be an outlet underneath the sink for a future recirculating pump that will assure instant hot water without wasting water to get it to the fixtures. Also we will have electric under floor heat. (under the tile). The Plumber will be coming this thursday to run PEX tubing to where the sink, toilet and shower fixtures will be.Here you can see that the shower is all framed in. There will also be a bench behind where Jeff is standing.
7/23/24 Update: After a visit from our friends at Radar Plumbing, we now have all the PEX lines connected to their respective bathroom fixture valves.
