Tiled Shower

Filed under: Job Progress — Fran Maloney @ 9:56 pm

Working in the same 1808 cape, now with the walls insulated and sheetrocked, and durock on the shower walls,  I built up the curb to the shower with 3 2x4s stacked together and covered with durock.  The tops of the curbs tilt slightly into the shower.  The walls and ceiling of the shower are white ceramic subway tiles with nautical decorative tiles in one row at eye level.  The floor is pebbles.  The pebbles are cemented with thinset mortar to a bed of sand mix mortar placed over a vinyl shower pan, over 5/8″plywood underlayment pitched with shingles to drain any water that penetrates the grout into the weep holes in the side of the drain.
