Another Project Completed – New Shower

This is the second “major” project we had planned for the house that being the installation of a new customer shower.

I went back and forth as to whether I should try to tackle this project or let the professionals do it. Now, for those accustomed to doing home renovation the decision would probably be an easy one. But I’m not that person. I don’t have the experience nor do I have all the right tools. So I turned to the professionals. In the end I’m glad I did. The remodel required moving a vent stack, installing new supply lines and vales, and moving the drain. It took them a day. If I had tried to tackle it I’m sure it would have been more like a week.

This was the old. It was a one piece plastic enclosure that definitely was showing its age.

Out with the old. It came out in several pieces because of its size.

The sum total of the old shower enclosure.

The materials for the new shower waiting to be cut, fitted and installed. We chose a new one piece shower pan, acrylic for the walls and a customer shower door.

After the pan was installed all new three quarter inch plywood walls were installed.

The acrylic was glued to this. Shelves and grab bars installed.

Finished! They did a fantastic job and we are absolutely thrilled with the way that it turned out.

So, the second big project is completed. Only one more to go which will be the installation of double pane windows sometime in the future.

  1. I second your decision to go with professionals for this project. My husband and I did a complete renovation on the “master” bath at our last house, including replacing the shower stall. Never again. Ours was a tiny bathroom and the process took over a week. *shudder*
