Beautiful. Can it be modified for a steam shower? - Saw this photo years ago in the SF chronicle and clipped it. Finally getting around to remodeling my bath, and this is still the most beautiful execution of the tub in shower concept I've ever seen. Is there a way to modify it for a steam shower without losing the clean transitions from room to shower or creating a claustrophobic tile box in the shower? »
Where is the toilet? Is it somewhat private? Do you have pictures of the rest of the room? - I'm going to do my wet room like yours. I've been told I should enclose the toilet, but with an 8.5' wide space and sloped ceilings, it would be awkward. The room will be 8.5' x12.5'. »
How did you make it watertight. - I came up with this same floor plan/idea, but my contractor says I am inviting a water issue with leakage around the tub drain to the subfloor. Is this really an issue? Did you do anything special to make it watertight? »
does tub need to be glue/seal onto shower floor? - love the idea. I will definitely use this design for my bathroom remodeling.
1)It seems as though shower floor is sloped to center, do you have to glue/seal the tub onto the floor in order to keep it stationary? how often do you have to reseal it?
2) I am thinking of having the shower floor sloping down toward the wall on the right (wall which has pocket and shower stand) and will have the drain there too. I chose to slope this direction, hoping that water between the tub and middle wall will slide down with the slope. Would that be a good idea? »
