The purpose of this paper is to provide insight into the process of remodeling a 42 SF bathroom for Son Care Foundation, Inc. The initial scope included the removal of an existing fiberglass bathtub, plumbing work, drywall installation, mudding, drywall texturing, new flooring, a new toilet, and a new sink. During construction, the owner requested that I add paint, an ADA-compliant sink, a new lighting fixture, a new vinyl baseboard, a new mirror, a new cabinet, new door trim, and new door hardware as part of my scope. I used what I learned in class to solve problems during the remodel. I created a site logistics plan that illustrated key elements before construction commenced. I also developed a schedule with an expected completion date of July 23, 2021, but the actual completion date was August 27, 2021. It took 39 working days to complete the bathroom remodel, and the total cost for Son Care Foundation was $2,343.2. Multiple changes and additions, such as the owner's decision to use an ADA-compliant sink, delayed the project by 15 working days. Son Care Foundation already had many of the tools and materials needed for the remodeling, which reduced the overall cost.
