Building my self and wife a new bathroom,13 x 13' I hope we have enough space for the washer and dryer. Its going to be tile floor and my custom tile shower. Building a mud shower pan. It will be my first shower pan ever. I have built a few buildings in my life, but never a shower pan.

Shower pan

Working on building my shower pan. More work then expected. I saved a few dollars building my own mud over rubber shower pan.
5' x 6' shower with tile. It keeps raining up here in Maine so I had to work inside the room instead on the outside. I only have tar paper on the roof. So I have a few little leaks. They always seem to be on my head..:eek::eek:
Will post more ASAP

Shower pan complete. Durock going on the wall this weekend. The shower pan floor was not that easy to do. The 1/4 bubble per foot sloped to the drain. After all said and done ,the pan looks good. I will be installing the shower vale this weekend . plumbing with pex and shark bite fittings.
They don't give the shark bite fitting away at home depot. 10.00 for one:whistling2:
Stay tuned for more. IF I GOOF THIS UP MY WIFE WILL SURLY KILL ME

This weekend I have tiles started,,

Ralph Coolong 06-30-2013 05:42 PM

My cement pan was out of square some,, Sucks man. So I started with the tile on the walls first. Wrong or right? I should have started with the floor first. So don't follow me on this. If you ever decide to build a shower pan make sure the walls are plumb and are square as can be. Its very easy to get going and rush this. Anyway it looks great and I will save 30,000 on the job.

Don't rush!!!!!!!!!! I also have the shower plumbed in with my 3/4 pex. I checked for leaks and its all ok. So I will finish my shower this long weekend I home.

I love this sheet rock lift. Its about 5 years old and still works great. It will put the stuff up fast. Hey I am 54 what can I say. Gave my stilts up years ago.:laughing:

Done with the shower stall. Doors next and more tile. It only took me 5 days. http://www.woodworking.org/InfoExcha...n_rolleyes.gif

This is a big learning curve for sure. More time time to build then expected.
We wanted a NICHE for soap and shampoo. So I bought one for 65.00 hunk of plastic that still needed to be tiled over. I thought we just had to put the darn thing into the wall and forget about it. 5 hours to tile a niche.. http://www.woodworking.org/InfoExcha...on_mrgreen.gif http://www.woodworking.org/InfoExcha...on_mrgreen.gif
Guess I will have to take a few days off from this bathroom build..
I will grout the this week and that's it. THE END
