Basement Bathroom: Cost Breakdown

on May 25, 2017

Just a follow up to my post on the basement bathroom build and a few more pics of the actual process.

Just so you have an idea of the space as it looked – unfinished. The wall on the left was built several years ago. It separates this bathroom from the office on the other side.


Prepping for plumbing…


Mr. Restyle dug this all up himself…


then filled it and poured concrete.


After that was dry, heused self-levelling concrete to finish it off.


The shower gets started…



So not the entire process but gives you a better idea of the before and after.
