Let me see your shower!!

I'm about to start construction on the shower portion of my conversion and would really like to see yours for possible ideas. I'm going to be using a galvanized tub for the shower basin but am concerned about the splash factor. What did you use on the floor and walls? Did you use tile? If so did you take any extra steps to prevent cracking? Or just any advice in general. Thanks guys and gals

Those galvanized water troughs can be bought knee high or ankle high. Of course the knee high trough can actually be used for a tub, and there's less splash factor if you put a shower curtain in it.

Yeah Robin, mine is about calf high and I do intended to use a shower curtain while standing but I'm also interested in making a bench for sitting (the girlfriend says she needs it to be able to shave her legs. Lord knows I want her to be able to do that too!) I'm looking at ideas very similar to the picture I'm including.

That looks pretty nice. I had a little simpler installation in mind.

People, people, people. You must follow the rules. Mankind aspires to some degree of civilization, and even we skoolies -- rugged individualists though we be -- should do our part.

Regrettably, it is my duty to remind you of...
Section 22459.3 (a) 8], National Bathing Appliance & Washing Apparatus Code
:

No Shower or Bathtub must ever be shown, demonstrated, or displayed; in physical presence, or in photographic or digital representation; without a live Human present in the above, illustrating and demonstrating correct use of same, in complete accuracy pertaining to such use, as in actual end-user utilization by Consumers in the Field.

That is all. You may proceed.

Elliot I am so sorry for my disregard of .Section 22459.3 (a) 8], National Bathing Appliance & Washing Apparatus Code: I promise I will be punished for my reckless behavior.

Elma did you use anything to seal your tin walls and the wood used on the front? I have considered using wood for the bench but I am concerned with mold and rot... BTW it looks awesome. Great job

I built my own out of redwood. I built the walls laying down and coated with 4 coats of marine polyurethane.
Here are my original drawings.





The final is pretty close, although the door will hinge on the other side. Still have to build the door.

Elma! Wonderful interpretation of the law! And what a cute kid! (I may be fun, but I'm also a "grandfather type".)
