Back lighting a shower shampoo niche
 
3 Attachment(s)
I building a light feature into my daughters North Vancouver Bathroom Tub Shower. The light feature will double as a shampoo niche for my three girls.

It has be a lot of fun to build and it looks amazing at night. Right now it's my portable LED Shop Light in behind but when funds arrive I will rig up some mini LED's in behind the change colours...

Setting tile all day. So many spacers.

Tile backer for a back lit shampoo niche
 
I used Green EBoard as my tile backer. I gave it three coats of Hydro Ban once I taped my seams.

The glass to wall tie in was tricky and will involve the use of Kerdi and Kerdi Fix. I'll post more information on this step in a later post.

Still need to finish setting these tiles. So much grinder work...

How is the project going John?

A Slow process
 
I'm almost done. To chicken to grout...

I have been so busy with work and other projects that we have settled on baths for a long long spell.

I had hoped to wrap it up over Christmas but a great client had some water issues in UBC and we decided to help them instead.

Soon.
