Not very glamorous or fun, but the next step in the Master Bathroom process was to patch the subfloor. All in all it is a pretty simple project to do. We measured the holes in the floor and then drew this out onto ¾ inch plywood. Using a circular saw ,the pieces were cut out, put in place, and nailed down with a nail gun.
When patching the subfloor, you need to make sure you take out enough of the old floor so both the new wood and the old wood are on a joist. Otherwise, you will have a weak spot in the floor.
The other tip I have is to make sure you know where all the water lines are. I got over excited with the nail gun while Wolfy was at the hardware store and managed to puncture one of our new flexible lines. After a panicked race down to the basement to shut the water off, we were able to pull up the subfloor, slice the Eupidor, and install a compression fitting. The subfloor was re-installed, using more control this time.
One project closer to a finished bathroom!
So, does anyone else want to confess any similar mishaps (or rat their loved ones out)?
