What is the tub brand and size? - I love this tub/shower and vanity arrangement...beautiful! What is the size and tub brand? Can you tell me the dimension needed for the tub and shower in this arrangement. I have a small bath where I am trying to fit everything in. Room dimensions would be helpful also, as well as shower size. Thanks! Love this!

Hi-
thanks for the compliments.
The tub is by Duravit - the name of the tub is 2nd floor - # 7001600. It is roughly 6 feet long by 2' 9" wide. The length of the room ( in other words, the tub with deck, the seat and the shower) is 11' - 1 1/4" finished dimension -- add at least one inch to either end for the tile setting over the substrate. The width you can see is 4'-0". The leading edge of the tub deck into which the controls are mounted is 8 4/8" - which leaves a much narrower deck strip at the wall. The shower length including the 13' dropped seat is 4' 3 7/8". The other dimension in the room - in other words the direction coming towards you is about 9'-6" - there are two separate vanities - toilet is in a separate but adjacent space.
You could use a shorter tub and omit the seat in the shower to save length.
Good luck --
Cathy

What type of door is in the shower to the outside? - Love the indoor/outdoor bathroom. I'm remodeling my house and doing that. Can you give me the door specs? What kind of door is in the shower leading to the outside and if there is anything special you had to do? My builder was worried about rust or longevity of a door to outside that would be constantly getting wet.

Hi -
The door to the exterior is a glass frameless door with very little hardware all of which is either stainless steel or brushed nickel. The door itself was fabricated by the same company who did all of the shower glass and I believe that they installed it with the hardware. Schicker Luxury Shower Doors, Inc 925.676.5040. Door handles by CR Laurence. The jambs, head and sill are stone and were detailed much the way one would any exterior door vis a vis waterproofing/interface with siding. Stone and waterproofing were installed by that sub.
The water proofing assembly is something to be very careful and conservative with - less because of water going in and or out of shower and more because all openings in a shower ( and this is a steam shower so more involved) need to carefully protect the house frame. We used a concealed closer at the head and a exposed pivot patch at the top and bottom. A lock patch and the handle on each side is the balance of the hardware. I would advise talking to Schicker about this and having them do the work if you are local to them or get their thoughts.
I hope this is enough to get you started --

Hi -
The manufacturer is Blomberg ( Sacramento, CA). The windows are aluminum frames. The technical department is incredibly helpful and will assist you in combining their extrusions in pretty much any combination/design you can think of. They also have several part width options which I like taking advantage of. I have always loved working with this company. The units in this image are fixed glass with an inswinging hopper unit where you can see that the unit operates. I recommend them highly.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The star of this bathroom is mosaic glass tile (Hokkaido Natural ½- by 1-inch brick from Global Tile Design). It’s used around the indoor tub as well as the outdoor one, where it appears in a larger size. Note that the interior windows are glazed for privacy.
