Hi, The oiler is in the extreme foreground to the left of the sink, out of the photo. The only things in the wet room are the bathing things.

Dealing with an uncentered drain and symmetric slope - Hi I really love this design and layout. I have a question about how you did the slope. Since the drain is placed toward the front and not the center of the shower pan, is there a steeper slope on the front end of the shower? Or did you have the shower floor rise to a higher elevation toward the back? Thanks in advance. Joe M

floor is level at all of the walls, so the slope is greater at the front

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?

Hi, Thanks for the very kind words. I think that it would be pretty easy to extend the glass wall to the ceiling (and I guess into the skylight wells too). The limestone wall surfaces would have to be everywhere in the steam zone...there might be a condensation issue at the skylights even though they are dual glazed.

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'.

Hi - The toilet is not in a compartment of its own; it is just off the left hand side of the photo next to the vanity. We often do compartmentalize the toilet, depending on available space and client desires; in this case given the dimensions we had to work with and the desire to create an open and airy space(despite there being no windows), we opted not to compartmentalize the toilet. Your dimensions are roughly the same as those in the photo.

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?

This project had a concrete slab floor, the entire 'wet room' was waterproofed as if the entire thing was a shower, with waterproofing running to the top of the tile.

We are doing the same thing for a client... and we are having issues with how to drain the tub. The shower pan has the hole for the drain for the shower part... but there isn't an additional hole for the drain for the tub. Our guys are saying if we penetrate the shower pan to make a new hole, that it is likely to cause problems down the road. Please explain how you drained the tub. Any help is greatly appreciated!!! Thank you!

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?

Glad you like it. Getting the flat tub bottom to look right with the sloping floor was a challenge. The reason the floor slopes to the front is so that the gap under the tub (there is a small gap) is uniform and reads evenly from side to side. if the floor sloped as you intend the gap would read unevenly, or, if the tub was set down on the slope it may read as sloped. In reality, given the size of the 'wet room' there is very little water that gets to the back wall, so it has never really been an issue.

Practical Question - This is beautiful. From a practical standpoint, how difficult is it to keep clean? Can you get behind the tub to clean so everything remains so beautiful?
