Re: New Bathroom


Yes it was. I normally use a sub for shower glass but my buddy ordered it from Amazon and asked me to install it. Went in pretty smooth.

This door does not accommodate or allow for adjustment out of plumb walls...or so the instructions say.

There is a tiny bit of adjustment but not much. The rollers are on a cam that allows for some up and down of the slider.

Flat walls are more important!

My only point is that by hiring a professional glass guy, he can accommodate out of plumb walls that you might not see until you have a square and plumb glass door roll up to it.

Re: New Bathroom


Linen cabinet came in so I was able install that, the new set of Dreamline doors should be in any day now, wall paper removal, wall and ceiling repairs, primer and paint, new marble window sill, moving a light box, new light bar, door and crown moldings, cabinet pulls, repainting a Nutone vent grill and a bunch of other little odds and ends to wrap this up.

I should be mostly done tomorrow, I've got some sealant work and final paint to do before I put things back together.

Re: New Bathroom


I being promised a Friday delivery of the new Dreamline enigma X shower doors to replace the wrong unit the customer originally bought...other than that, everything else is pretty much done.

Light globes are in, corner shelf was refinished in Kona stain to match moldings, vanity top, floor perimeter, inside tile corners and all moldings were caulked, exhaust fan grill was sanded and epoxy coated to match ceiling, cabinet shelves are in, toilet paper holder and robe hook were drilled and secured, door handle was retrofitted with a flat handle for cabinet drawer clearance and a new shower arm extension was sources out and installed to replace the original one which turned out not sufficient for a 16" rain once filled with water...(after 2 days, it developed a leak at a factory adjustable joint which seemed to be pulling apart) That got trashed and I removed the 45deg. shower arm which got replaced with a 4" chrome nipple. The new extension is much heavier and slightly longer which brings the rain head out in perfect proportion to the shower.

After having been on hold for so long on this bathroom, the customer is really excited to bust loose and start using it...i don't blame him, it turned out pretty nice.

Re: New Bathroom


cont...Also changed out the toilet, valve and supply hose on another bathroom here as well...another Kohler San Souci piston flush. In case anyone is interested in that shower arm extension, that's a Vida Alegria "REACH" solid brass, high flow...it's nice quality for $50.00

Re: New Bathroom


The new shower doors finally arrived or should I say I had to go pick them up and I scheduled the install for yesterday. A shout to our forum member Andrew/Overanalyze for offering up his insights and giving me his number in case I ran into any issues.

Before I bugged him, I wanted to go over the specs of the new door given the other door was ordered over a year ago...and yes, some parts have changed and the instructions varied from the previous ones.

No matter, I took it slow and steady and still knocked it out like the pro I am

With hindsight now provided, our tiles walls were within stabila bubble lines, but were a total of 1/4" out of plumb...about an 1/8" per side. The threshold was dead on and slightly pitched towards the shower as should be. The adjustable cams surely came in handy to tweek us were we had to be and like Andrew said, flat is more important.

I would grade the install a success in form and function as every spec was followed to a tee right on down to loctite thread locker on all set screws.

In conclusion, I would say these doors do have some minor adjustability...quite to the contrary of what they lead you to believe, but i'm pretty sure we were close to the limit.

Owner wanted to jump right in and take a shower I told him he had to wait 24hrs. for the sealant to cure

Re: New Bathroom


Agree, I've got few customers choosing this design. And I kinda start liking it too.
