Depending on the fixture arrangement in each dwelling the problem may just be leaking tile in on the tub shower wall. The partition wall could be 2x4 or 2x6 depending on the builder. Here's a rough in guide and a rough in diagram.

Fix a dripping ceiling fan in bathroom


I suppose the answer depends on where the water is coming from: bathroom steam, leaking water pipe, or from outside the house.

How can we get rid of the occasional sewer smell in our house?


When you next get the smell, check the traps to see if there is enough water in there to fill the trap, if one is less then it looks like water is getting sucked out when toilet is flushed or that trap (usually bath or shower) hasn't had water going in (lack of use) and water has partially evaporated.

Remove bathroom sink flange


Turn off the water valves at the back of the sink and place a bucket underneath the drain to catch any water that may run out.
2 Loosen the nuts that hold together the drain tailpiece and the P-trap with a wrench. Disconnect the the two pieces.
3 Unscrew the drain tailpiece from the drain flange. Depending on how the drain flange is held in place, you may need to hold it down firmly as you twist the tailpiece below. Remove the tailpiece and set it aside.
4 Remove the old drain flange. It may come straight out after the tailpiece is removed, or it may be held in place with putty or silicone. If it is held in place tightly, grasp the edge with a pair of pliers and pull until it comes free.
5 Wipe down the sink area that was underneath the old flange. If the metal was discoloring or rusting, clean the porcelain well and dry it to keep the new flange clean.
6 Apply a thin bead of silicone caulk to the underside of the new flange. Push the new flange into the drain hole in the sink.
7 Push the drain tailpiece back up into the sink's drain from below and screw it into the flange tightly. Use a wrench to tighten it up securely.
8 Reconnect the P-trap to the tailpiece and tighten the nuts that hold it in place. Turn on the water supply to the sink and run water through the pipes to ensure everything is securely fastened.

If water is backing up into the tub then you have clog downstream from that bathroom group. If water backs up when you ran water in the rest of the house then you have a clogged sewer service. With either case the house drain and / or sewer drain will need to be snaked. Most of the time it will be the sewer drain.

You can't stop condensation or humidity in the house, especially in the bathrooms. A few choices: replace the hinges, or oil the hinges with WD-40. Install a vent fan (even though you have a window) and replace the pipes with PVC pipes. Metal drain pipes will always rust, because they drain water. Replace all under sink drain pipes with PVC

No cold water from bathroom tap


Sounds like you need to replace your shower valve, especially if this is the only fixture in the house being affected. You could try to replace the cold water cartridge first. Hope this helps
