    I watched and your correct a plan is somewhat important in avoiding problems. At least measure and get an idea of how it comes apart and goes back together. And I think, cause I did a bathroom in my house, is that if someone is thinking of doing a remodel themself, you got to have the tools for the job. I helped a friend remodel a house and used screws to fasten studs. I later got a nail gun for myself, and if we would have had the NG, the work would have gone much quicker.

    I'm amazed at how many people never even think about creating a plan or even taking pictures of the entire demolition process and simply remove everything. Then they start scratching their heads wondering how in the heck all of this is going to go back together.

    The most frustrating thing about remodeling a bathroom is the cost of the shower/tub surround. They are all surprisingly expensive.

    They could be expensive, but it's about the cheapest way I can possibly imagine to cover the bathtub or shower surround area. However, I'm not entirely convinced these things are worth the money you pay for them, because they don't seem to last as long as tile. It's one of those things where you save a little money today, but end up spending double in the future.

    It's always nice to hear positive responses, even though the videos I consider to be the most important, aren't always watched. Anyway, I'm glad to share my knowledge with everyone.

    Thanks a ton for this helpful video. I guess it is going to be beneficial for those who are looking for creative tips on bathroom remodeling. I genuinely appreciate the way you have explained issues like plumbing change, bathroom designs, water based paints etc. What you have said on bathtub, sinks and toilet is truly commendable. However I personally feel a little discussion on budget would have been more useful.

    Thanks for your positive comment and I will see what I can do about producing another video on bathroom remodeling budgets. This does seem to be a big problem and I'm glad you brought it up.

    Number five- don't stay behind them. Let people work.
    Number six- dont worry about a celing. I don't supporting Greg. It's up to you. It's depends on yours life style. More steam or less… semi gloss or higloss paint it was back in 2000, but ain't now. We are had changed. We have better ventilation, we have better lighting fixtures and better paint.

    I agree with 4 of your 5 tips. But why is licensing so crucial? Why not simply reputation? Licensing is scarcely more than a govt grant of privilege. I'd just as soon hire a ne'er-do-well who'd demonstrated savvy, reliability, and excellent craftsmanship. Licensing is no more a guarantee than is word-of-mouth. It's a vastly overrated false sense of security and, at its root, a govt cartel device.

    What if you current bathroom layout was poorly thought out. Are you still against moving things?
