Good Morning Everyone,
As usual, I am browsing the forums with my morning coffee. I was looking at a thread regarding a wet head and had a thought....
Earlier this year we ran away from home for a few days for mental health preservation.
We were driving through Coeur d'Alene Idaho and, at the recommendation of my nephew, stopped at this funky little motel called Bennett Bay Inn. They have themed rooms that are quite creative and a bit funky. It is run by a really nice young couple. We really enjoyed our 4 day stay. We had only planned on stopping overnight...
The shower in the room caught my attention as I had just finished a bathroom remodel and had tried and tried to find a sheet material that I liked for the shower surround. I gave up and used tile. It came out nice but was a bit expensive and a lot of work.
The material in the shower at Bennett Bay looked like what I had been looking for and could not find. You can see a picture of it on TripAdvisor. (I tried to snag the pic but could not.)
The next time I ran into the owner I asked him where he had found the shower surround material? Turns out it is vinyl sheet flooring. He told me that they put a waterproofing membrane up (Redguard) and then used flooring adhesive to put the material on the walls. He also told me that they had used a heat gun to help soften the material for the corners.
I could also tell that in some of the corners they applied some kind of filet in the corner before the material went up to "soften" the bend.
The end result was nice enough that I am considering using it in my bus.
I thought someone out there might find this interesting.
