An extremely fun project, but a grueling 4 straight days of tiling, and a full day just to grout and clean this monster. Used pretty much every conceivable dimension of SL83 ont his one, 2x2, 6x6, 12x12 and 18x18, plus around 80 feet of bullnose. This is another Wedi shower system with Denshield past the first foot.
Actually had an issue with the first pan when I set it, because I set it to the dimensions of the old pan. Apparently there was a mix up between the HO and the salesman, and I was supposed to actually make the pan wider, which actually involved reframing a portion of the pony wall around the tub. So I had to pull up my first wedi pan, which involved resetting the drain to the middle of the wider pan. After that, I pulled out the new pan, only to find the drain was not centered, but towards the front of the pan on this new pan. So... after a quick trip to the local hardware store, I got to set the drain a third time (that'll teach me to assume!).
Anyways, I think it's a good thing that there is no border in this shower, as there's already so much going on. There's a nice flow from the showerhead, through the two insets down to the seat, and the angle of the tub wall makes everything so wonderfully angular and geometric. I really am proud of how everything turned out. It was even my suggestion to set the insets in the diagonal arrangement, so I'm like a professional designer now! In all seriousness though, it's form follows function. One inset for someone who uses the seat, and one for someone who is standing.
I also FINALLY got a homeowner that thinks bullnose makes the best base trim in a bathroom. Seems like everyone cheaps out and goes for wood trim, but I'll never know why. It costs very little more to just slap some bullnose up and make it awesome. Anyways, this is what I've been up to lately, and I have a HUGE project coming up that will take 5 weeks, an ADA master back that's bigger than both of my previously posted project. Hopefully I don't get bogged down and actually get it done in a reasonable amount of time.
