Honestly, you’d think I’d invented the concept myself — zero threshold showers (AKA curbless shower).
From the very beginning of the renovation I talked about the concept of universal design hoping someone in the planning or building stage would make allowances for it.
It seems my contractor who is a plumber and his partner who is an excellent tiler really did not have experience with showers without physical barriers. Through a local plumbing company who did this repair I have the name of a man who specializes in putting in shower pans, especially the no-threshold type.
He came out on July 4th to look at the projects — conservatory shower and master bathroom shower — and quoted two shower pans with one piece drains for under $3000. That sounds reasonable to me.
Once the pans are in (hopefully at the end of July) we can put the Hardie backer on the walls and get the renovation inspected for the final time.
What must-have would you require in a newly built or a renovated space?
