Bathroom remodel — multiple questions
Don in Marine Zone 4c. Salem Oregon.
I am remodeling my 1965 Ranch style home. Best as I can tell its a “California Deck house”. My ventilated crawl space is about 20″, mud sill not bolted to foundation and 4×6 doug fir beams on 4′ centers supporting 2×6 T&G.
The space being remodeled has no underfloor insulation of any kind.
Questions I have are:
1. I want to put tile on the floor, concerned about deflection and sealing the floor. Insulating the crawlspace or the floor? best method to stiffen floor?
2. Selecting the proper size bath fan for a soaking tub, walk in shower and toilet, space is 80 sq ft, but there is no bathroom door as it attaches to the master bathroom with a 4′ opening. Humidity sensing, occupancy sensing?
Have a 4′ sq opening available to access crawlspace, until plumbing completed.
