Remodeling shower
Posted by Ralph on November 17, 2001 at 23:26:56:
Our shower leaked and caused damage to the wood frame so we tore it apart. We also took down all surrounding walls so we are now able to start from scratch. The problem is, is that the tiled shower floor was not installed with a shower pan liner. We left the tile in place, except for a few corner tiles that came off. Another slight set back is that the drain is not centered so switching to a shower kit doesn't quite fit. We are wondering what would be the best way to rebuild our shower; bust up the cement base(basement bathroom), move the drain and install a kit or is there a way to leave the drain where it is and remove just the tile and mortar and start from that point. The stall will be unique in that there will be two doors, one from the bathroom side and one from the hot-tub room side. This means that it would only be a floor piece put in and the rest of the stall will be green boarded and finished that way. We really do not wish to use ceramic tile again. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
