Budget Home Centers ( Vernetta ) had me stop by to see this customer.
The lady of the house was elderly and could no longer step over the tub to
take a shower, and did not have the funds for a tub remodel into a walk in
So... Desperate to be able to stay in her home.
I removed the shower door
Cut the side of the tub out
Added concrete mortar
Hung a shower curtain
This is not my normal way I do work, but she needed help to stay in her home
of 30 years

I do have the picture of the bare walls
The new shower is a made of Solid Panels and shower base is called
Swanstone from Budget Home Centers.
All the corners and wall trim is Swanstone.
This is a great system, easy to keep clean.
I also installed a seat by Swanstone
I Installed hand bars also.
Before the wall board went up, I added 2x4's in the wall for strength to have a solid structure to
attach the seat and hand bar bolts.
Materials came to around $3500.00
The 2x4's in the picture is to hold the panels in place over night while the adhesive dries

vanity, lighting, mirrors,
Linoleum flooring, toilet
This customer has MS, so he needed the Tub removed and a shower base installed.
Not all tile was removed, but new tile had to be added, the new tile they located did not quite match
in color, so they had me put in a boarder tile so the new and old were not next to each other.
I then installed the shower door and new grab bar.
|New shower has two shower heads,
one by the seat.
Notice the 32" French drain at the
entry to the shower.
|January / February 2014
First two pictures, old shower and sunk in the floor tub
Next picture, new raised tub ( jetted with built in heater ) and enlarged shower
water tries to leave the shower floor, then the main round floor drain.
I completed many other projects in this home in the time I was there
My labor came to $10,000.00
Then add in Electrician ,plumber, glass company and materials
Just under a $30,000.00 job.
Dates on the some the pictures are wrong
|The below pictures are old, but still gives you an idea. All the new pictures are on Face Book,
Andrew and I have done so many master bathrooms, since he began working with me, we have
completed some very custom bathrooms, we build and pour the shower bases, that is just the
start of the remodel. But I keep these pictures here to show I have been doing bathrooms a
long time, way before the internet was around as we know today. I think the Dos Floopy Disc
was being used...wow time flies.
