Curbless Shower Bathroom Build in This Old House


Hey everyone,
If you have noticed I have been asking a TON of questions and have soaked in just enough to start the process of a Kerdi bathroom.


I have removed a 16ft closet and intend on making that the exterior wall of the bathroom as well as the particle underlayment and to date have the T&G out and the plumbing and electrical moved. I will be ready for the walls and the shower specifically in the next weeks to come.


Check out the Pics! Cheers

Re: Curbless Shower Bathroom Build in This Old House


How bouncy is that floor?


So is the plan to lower the shower floor to the level of the beams?

Re: Curbless Shower Bathroom Build in This Old House


Neal,

This thing was a damn bounce house After I took the closet wall out.
I crawled under the house and added a few pier pours and supports.

The remaining boards that I cut out end half way on to the beam. Letting one complete 4x8 - 1 1/8" sheet of plywood sit over the beams.

Also I added 2x6 brackets 12" O.C. for more support.

MAYBE: I should add another pier pours under the 2x6 and cross support them with a 4x8? (Probably OVERKILL... Idk.) What do you think?


  • I removed 5/8" underlayment and 1 1/2" subfloor = - 2 1/8"

    Add 1 1/8" Plywood and the KERDI pan 1 1/8" + 1 1/4" = 2 3/8"


Now that should put me a 1/4" above the subfloor and sheeting in the rest of the room. When I add the 1/4" Ditra Heat to the rest of the bathroom I should be FLUSH FLUSH!



HOW BOUT' DAT??


Another Project....

Re: Curbless Shower Bathroom Build in This Old House


If only I could upload video clips on here....

The window in the pic will become the shower niche.

What you think?

Honestly... The shower Niche will be in a 4'x 8" space in the area of the current window. I was not going to install insulation because I would loose my depth.

However! The Boss (GF) and I where talking and when I start to reside the house I was going to look into adding exterior insulation under the siding......

Then I would frame out the wall 1 1/2" and add an 1 12/" foam to the back of the niche.

I think it has an R value of 1, less than a window. How do you like frozen shampoo.
