    I love your bathroom! We are in the process of installing a rain shower just like the one you have. How high above the shower floor is it mounted to the wall?

    Thanks for your comments! We don't specify the height of those. Instead we ask the clients to "test it out" in the field during construction to see what works well for them. 18" or so above the tallest person's head is a good rule of thumb. Jeff - Jeannette Architects

    I believe it is around 3.5' X 5.5'.

    Yes, the structure is wood. Fully waterproofed and secured firmly through to the floor system. If you wish to beef up the strength of the walls, a steel post can be installed at the ends not connected to the room walls. Hope that helps!

    What is the height of the shower walls? Love them!
  • PRO
    Jeannette Architects
    The shower walls are around 54" off the floor of the shower. If you're planning on doing something similar, I'd recommend determining what's comfortable for you and your family and go from there. The wall height can be whatever you want it to be. Good luck and have fun! Jeff - Jeannette Architects

    I'm afraid I don't know that but would recommend showing this image to a local faucetry supplier to see if they can figure it out. Sorry, but good luck!

    Thank you for your reply. I just finished a shower of Bianco Gioia 4x8 polished tiles that were sealed twice. I have softened and purified water. After a short time, I now have water stains in the corners and around the inset. I love the look overall, I just hope the staining doesn't continue.

    Oh no, sorry to hear that. I'd reach out to the company from which you sourced the tile and see if they have recommendations. Hopefully you can get to the bottom of it!

    Beautiful! Did you have to add structural support to the wall that is 5'6" long and 48" high? How did you make it stable? Thanks!
  • PRO
    Jeannette Architects
    We didn't with this one but on others we've welded a steel plate to the bottom of a steel post and lag bolted it to the floor at the opening.

    I'm sorry, I don't know more about the sinks than are noted above.

    The shower wall seems very low. Does it keep the water in? Is it really only 54"? It looks taller than that.
  • PRO
    Jeannette Architects
    Yes, it keeps the water in. Rainshowers don't tend to splash water everywhere so special consideration needs to be made in the shower head selection.

    Hi there, it's a slightly off white towards gray color.

    The light was bought from the website,, although I don’t see it on the site now. The site does have similar but not exact lights. Good luck, Jeff - Jeannette Architects
  • annelbmom
    Jeff, would you divide the wall (with the "chair rail") in a similar style bathroom that was much smaller (6 x 7) ? Or is this more "possible" in this large bathroom with a high ceiling?

    It's common to make the shower openings 24" wide but ultimately it's up to you and your own comfort. Jeff - Jeannette Architects

    Thanks for answering so promptly! I didn't notice until later that this shower had a door; I thought it was doorless originally, which is why I asked.

    Hi Anne718, The windows are by Sierra Pacific. They are Metal Clad exterior / Wood interior Push Out style casements. You'll need to contact a local rep to discuss costs. I don't like Vinyl because of the amount of energy used to produce them and the toxic by-products of PVC in the window manufacturing. I hope that helps! Jeff / Jeannette Architects

    Thanks! I believe we landed on 54" off the shower floor. You'll want to mock it up at your home in consideration of your own height and comfort for privacy or visual out of the shower. Have fun with it!

    Hi there, color is different from computer monitor to monitor. I don't recall the spec on this color but would recommend getting a color fan deck from Benjamin Moore paints (or Dunn Edwards) and match it to what you see on your screen. I get this question a lot and it's worked well for others. Cheers! Jeff Jeannette, jeannette architects.

    It's hard to estimate just the shower costs... if I had to guess, it may be around $5000 from scratch using high quality materials. Your local contractors may charge differently than ours in Seal Beach, CA so be sure to ask someone local.

    Thanks! Costing this particular bathroom is hard as the whole home was built at once. If I had to venture a guess, I'd say around $16k.

    Thanks for asking! The floor in the bathroom is the same knotty pine wood floor as the rest of the home but it's white wash painted for better protection against moisture.
