    My home has one full bath, and one half bath in the basement (jammed into a small area under the front porch...all stone, and very small).
    Anyway, I would like to remodel the bathroom on the main floor (electric, tub, toilet, sink, everything). I'm going to have to gut the whole thing.
    This will leave me without a shower for a few weeks.
    Is there such a thing as a temporary basement shower? My basement is unfinished and it has asbestos tile, so I really don't want to dig a new drain line. The basement ceiling is very low, so I can't elavate the shower to accomodate the drain. Any suggestions?

    That's brilliant.
    Why didn't I think of using the actual bathroom as a temp shower. I'll do my homework and give it a run.
