Well, since I've got time, and currently staying with family, I think I'll spend a little of it doing a heavy bathroom remodel.


My bathroom is one-piece fiberglass, but its showing its age, and wasn't really thought out really well, there's several spots where space was wasted because of the design.

However, the floor pan is still in good shape, along with the sink.

So, my plan is to cut the wall sections of the bathroom surround out with a utility knife (They're really thin) down to within several inches of the shower pan.

The left behind material will be used as an overlap to prevent water from being able to track back up and around the shower pan.

Behind the existing bathroom structure is paneled walls. I intend to frame some small surrounds to go over the vent pipes, and then hang this stuff on all the walls and probably on the bathroom ceiling:

This will allow me to brighten the bathroom up to a crisp white, and also allow me to regain some wasted space in my very small bathroom.

I shouldn't need more than 2 sheets of this stuff to do my whole bathroom, with plenty to spare.

Once this is done, I'll be able to turn my focus on modifying the toilet a little bit and with luck, I'll actually be able to fully dry camp without having to have a restroom near by.
