shower ceiling issues..


It looks like (in the picture) the ceiling in the shower is higher then where the shower curtain is.

Why are you assuming the shower area is the one with the higher ceiling?

I am sure I am wrong but to me it looks like the shower curtain at the bottom, then the hooks, a space about 3" to the corner of the soffit then about 1' of drywall to the ceiling corner. From how I see the picture that would be a dead space if the vent is outside the shower curtain so that will create moisture on the ceiling of the shower.

Still looks to me like the moldy corner is higher and the rusty corner bead is above the curtain rod. Maybe it's not a soffit but a dropped ceiling outside of the curtain, maybe I am all screwed up on the way I see the picture. If I'm seeing it right the space above the curtain rod is raised from the other ceiling so a fan will not remove the moisture if it is outside the curtain.

Haha, so concerned eh? Shower is lower than the rest by about a foot.

Ignore the pained ceiling. The wrong person got their hands on a paint roller once upon a time

I never understood why these were built this way. Having the ceiling dropped in the shower area. Or worse, a header type structure up by the ceiling, trapping the moisture in the shower.
Most times these are dead spaces that can be reclaimed when the bath is redone.

This approach works well when a vent/light is in the shower area. The dormer allows the curtain or glass doors to confine the moisture inside the shower area where it can be evacuated without fogging up the mirror or getting the rest of the bathroom damp.

This would not be a concern to me about the rest of the bathroom fogging up. A light can be put in the ceiling above.
I've done this in dozens of bathrooms and the customers have loved it and never had an issue with the change. I've even done a few baths where the ceilings were cathedralized and the light was 11 feet off the floor.

It is sort of annoying, and no its not the master shower. Master is weird.. its got a light in the showers ceiling, and it is like a closet.. ceiling is regular height but where the door is it drops down about a foot. So with the fan outside the shower, all the steam gets trapped in there. Weird. Its a 11 year old house.
