tile bathtub

Pour a concrete tub, then tile it.

Waterproof the concrete using Hydroban by latacrete.

Google 'concrete sail boats' for the wire mesh work needed to form the tub shape---the drain will be a research problem--but it can be done.

Lots of work--but a fun project if you have the time and money.---Mike---
