A great review of the project we just finished. It is always a joy to be appreciated for our work. Thanks.
The project is all together. There were a lot of custom and unique pieces to put together this room. The glass for the walk in shower is 3/8 inch thick and is mounted on chrome hinges and clips. The sink vanity is an old dresser with attached mirror. It just fit in the sloping ceiling. It adds a bit of character and warmth to the room.
The home owner decorated the room with antique mirrors that make the small space feel bigger and add a unique charm. From planning to finish this was one of our favorite bathroom remodels.
We got the Wedi shower system in place. This system has the advantage of being vapor proof as well as water tight. We will be able to apply tile directly to this surface with thin set. There is a small toe kick bench for storing shower products. The system would allow recessed spaces as bigger benches. The adaptability of the product made this sloping ceiling space possible. We considered several of the items described on the bathroom planing page of our web site.
We stared designing a bathroom remodel fora 1920 house in SE Portland. The bathroom will be on the second floor of the house. There is a gable roof so the ceiling will have a slant to it. One challenge will be to keep enough height in the walk in shower to fit people of various heights. We will be building the shower with the Wedi ready to tile system which will get us a vapor and water proof enclosure and will have shallower build up than a traditional mud set shower base. The Wedi tile system will have a base thickness of about 2 inches when a traditional mud set shower base would be 4-6 inches thick. The shower door and half wall will be clear glass to bring light in to the shower area. Planing out the light, fan, and outlet locations are an important part of this project. Some other things that we considered are on our bathroom remodel page.
