Antique-Look Bathroom Sink, Soaking Tub, and Quartz Tile Installation

Project: Waterfront Warehouse Rehab, Episode 11, Part 2

Work continues in the penthouse bathroom. First comes the installation of a unique new tankless toilet from Toto USA. Called the Neorest 600, it's an "intelligent" unit, which is self-cleaning and offers hands-free remote controls.

With the toilet in place, the installation of the marble sink top and Toto USA vanity is next. Also in the bathroom is a Toto USA Baldwin Suite soaking tub that's been set into a custom-built stainless steel surround.

As the bathroom takes shape, Bob heads to famed Coney Island with Borough President Marty Markowitz to get a closer look at this historic section of Brooklyn.

Back on location, Bob takes a quick look at the progress being made on the roof deck.

Part 2: Antique-Look Bathroom Sink, Soaking Tub, and Quartz Tile Installation
Bob observes as the crew installs a custom vanity countertop and undermount sinks from Toto USA. The heavy white marble countertop is braced on the wall with a wood strip, anchored to the studs and supported from the floor with antique-style chrome legs. Bob points out that the acrylic tub from Toto's Baldwin Suite is a true soaking tub, measuring 22-inches deep and 72-inches long. Borrowing from industrial styling, the custom tub surround is constructed of 16-gauge stainless steel. Meanwhile, the tile floor in the penthouse bathroom is being installed. The tile is a manmade product from Turkey called Sim Stone. Buttered with thin-set mortar, the tiles are laid into the two-inch thick Portland cement substrate. Sim Stone tiles are similar to ceramic tiles but have a high quartz content. They are appropriate for use in kitchens and bathrooms, as they are almost impenetrable to liquids and staining.
