|Finished walls in Bathroom resemble a hand
troweled ceramic tile.
This is my first stucco shower and first stucco floor.
I hope to do plenty more in the future.
|The wall at the edge of the tub has a stone-like texture and has a solid feel, when one is getting out of the tub. Wall is intentionally plastered out of plumb not only for water run-off but for the illusion it is supporting weight.|
|Shower floor has a stone like finish, and is sculptured for water to run down the drain.||Another view of the walls. Stucco showers have a seamless look, in contrast to ceramic tile and the glued on square look.|
|Stucco is used here for thermal mass in this
radiant heat floor. 1" thick cement plaster isn't going anywhere. The finish coat is white portland cement and sand colored with paint colorants.
The use of acrylic additives makes all this possible.
|Floor is straightened with a 6 foot rod and mahogany rods that Jim made for me in his shop. The brown coat is left nice and rough for the finish coat.||Scratch coat on metal lath.
