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..
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
Stay tuned for more. IF I GOOF THIS UP MY WIFE WILL SURLY KILL ME

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.

Done with the shower stall. Doors next and more tile. It only took me 5 days.

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..
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

The shower looks great.

BTW, next time you post a pic of yourself swimming, put some shorts on first.
