With the floor sealed and the wall painted, the master bathroom is ready for tub, sink and toilet installation. We are not in love with the setup of this bathroom, but working around code has left us with very limited options. The tub could really only go in one spot and so this dictated the rest of the room. According to this ARTICLE though, we’ve got it all wrong, but so does just about everyone else. The history of the modern bathroom is actually quite interesting (I don’t know how I could be sounding like a girl with too much time on my hands…)
We have been collecting information and quotes for insulation. It is looking like we will indeed utilize a combination of spray foam and batt. We are in the process of partnering with a local green building company so that we may pick up scraps of a prefab-type insulation product they use in new construction. Hopefully, we will be able to piece these scraps together and use them as the insulation for underneath the containers (remember our containers sit off the ground and have lots of air space beneath them).
We had planned on using batt beneath the containers, but recently learned that this option is no good. Batt absorbs moisture like a sponge and once it becomes 10% water, it is 100% ineffective.
Anyone have a suggestion for a good DIY plumbing book? Ryan’s taking it on solo, but could use some helpful visuals and clear how-to’s.
