Re: CHANGED AGAIN! THIS WILL BE IT!!

I got the insulation and framing pretty much done. I realized I had to add some horizontal studs for the sub wall because there would not have been near enough support for the paneling.

Also, started framing for the passenger side closet!

Re: CHANGED AGAIN! THIS WILL BE IT!!

You know what Smitty, I have been back and forth trying to decide what to do first. Framing or paneling. I decided to frame first because I was nervous that I would have to take paneling off if I forgot something. And I'm going to run my wires through some of the subwall framing.

Re: CHANGED AGAIN! THIS WILL BE IT!!

Closet framing completed this past weekend and bathroom framing started.

Toilet and shower base arrived today! i just kinda placed them there for now.

I was wondering if the shower base gets screwed into the surround or FRP? Or do I just caulk the seams around the base. Unfortunately the base I recieved is a bit warped on the back side and my guess is that it would not sit flush against the surround and not seal properly. Is there something I can do about this?

Re: CHANGED AGAIN! THIS WILL BE IT!!

Started to cut and apply some paneling. There are several more pieces cut. But not installed yet. I need to configure some electrical and plumbing and so on.

Fortunately, the panel that is pieced together in the last pic will be hidden behind the kitchen counter.

Re: CHANGED AGAIN! THIS WILL BE IT!!

Nice bus!

Question: is the side door in the pics a wheelchair lift? It looks kind of small, so I figure it's an an emergency exit, but I can't tell for sure.

Re: CHANGED AGAIN! THIS WILL BE IT!!

Thanks Smitty. It does have a lip on all sides. I'm going to screw it into plywood then cover the plywood with the FRP.

Yes that was an emergency exit.

I installed a couple electrical outlets and cut some more paneling today. Not too many pics right now because I have not installed too much of the paneling yet until I finalize my electrical and plumbing. So things are kind of a mess right now.

Re: CHANGED AGAIN! THIS WILL BE IT!!

If you aren't planning on it already, you want to use PT or (pricey but even better) marine-grade plywood everywhere around the shower. No matter how well you seal it...it's gonna get wet in there.

I didn't, and I got to redo my shower pan.

PS--What are the dimension on that shower pan?
