@bcworkz you think the metallic plate would hold in place by "gluing" it to the saddle using epoxy? I am afraid that with some of the use it will "unglued"

yes, thank you Greg, I uppvoted your answer in hopes someone else will give me a solution without using the metal plate... I have a feeling I won't be able to screw in any screws without chipping the stone/marble looking saddle.

the metal plate would have to be cut to size, I would imagine it would be easier to fill in the existing hole and re-drill (assuming that there is a type of fill-in concrete or other material that won't flake with time)... below link to similar flush bolt we have. door.cc/assets/pics/about%20interior%20doors/Flush-bolt-.jpg

Apologies for not having a picture to hand. the latch is sort on the side of the door and the pin is inside the door. There is no metal plate like the one on your picture. I think our only option is to fill in the existing hole with some strong/durable material that won't break apart and redo a smaller hole. What material could we use?

I like this solution, my only concern now is that I have just noticed that the mailman delivers the letters after the first door is opened and I do not know if the lock that we will install will have to be compatible with their Master...

comment can i paint my bathtub wall?
Thank you shirlock. Our problem comes when trying to find a new contractor that could do this properly with minimal downtime to the bathroom. I guess this could take about 3 days of work?

Just found the below: youtube.com/watch?v=kTJcIfzu7Bs Do you think this solution could work (for the wall that has the fixtures?)

Hi Shirlock, we found another construction photo, from there we cannot tell if they used vapor barrier between the insulation and the rock... (I did not see any vapor roll around the house, so I guess they did not either). We are looking for solutions to avoid demolishing the whole bathroom. And we are wondering if there are any cement layers that can be applied on the fixture wall to waterproof it. Just saw that Benjamin moore has a bath and spa paint and was wondering if that could work.
