Re: Our Bus, Our Home

So here's a pic of the demo (notice the light, it was a full day of work). We got that inch and a half after all The hardest part was carefully removing/cleaning the shower pan and pretty much anything that was coated in the caulking we chose.

Re: Our Bus, Our Home

This is the stuff, used a few tubes of it the first time around and it turned out to be a major chore to remove, tough stuff, I highly recommend it.

Re: Our Bus, Our Home

Here's a few pics of the shower as it sits. Again, it needs a few trim boards. We decided to invest in some clear penetrating epoxy sealer and then we'll coat it with a few coats of marine grade spar varnish. Overall we're happier with this result (not to mention I can stand all the way up ) We'll wait to add the trim boards, plumbing and fixtures until after we seal all the end grains; the ones that don't show have already been sealed...I used a dozen tubes of that Dap 3.0 stuff in the construction, a bead at each end grain and in behind the tongue of each board (tongue pointed upwards). This time I was very careful no to get any of the silicone on any surface I plan to coat with the epoxy.

We also worked a bit on the toilet/sink side of the bathroom. Janelle had the idea of making a sink out of a bowl, I think it turned out really cool. still a ways to go on this side too, we plan to add a built in medicine cabinet and another cabinet above the toilet.

Re: Our Bus, Our Home

Shower looks amazing. I LOVE cedar. I am planning on fake tile in mine, but I may do the ceiling in cedar, after looking at yours. Or I may completely copy it

Re: Our Bus, Our Home

Got our CPES in yesterday and took advantage of some beautiful Western Washington weather (we've been pretty fortunate the last couple months with the weather) to lay down a decent coat of the stuff on any wood we want clear and water proof. http://www.smithandcompany.org/CPES/ the idea is that the solvents in the CPES carry the 2 part epoxy deep in to the wood fibers. The epoxy takes longer to cure (4-8 days) but you're supposed to "hotcoat" it with spar varnish in 18-24 hours (with the weather we're having) and this glues the varnish down as the epoxy is still curing underneath. We'll be doing two coats of CPES with 8-10 coats of McCloskey 's spar varnish on the shower. That should keep it looking good for a few years (knock on wood). As for PPE goes, we didn't take any chances, paint and pesticide respirators, gloves and goggles with the nasty mix of solvents. Also got the shutoff valves installed for the toilet and bathroom sink, pex makes plumbing easy. Will post pics soon.

Really nice work. The shower looks great and it's the only one I've ever seen built with cedar. I can't wait to see it with the finish coating all done.
