|A view of the curved shower.
The top was left flat in case someone wanted to use it for a shelf;
|The flat wall areas have metal lath nailed up
prior to plastering.
Random texture and color differences add
movement and depth to the completed work.
|Shower starts life as bricks laid on
|If we used framing, wood or metal, it would
require bracing to the ceiling. Bricks allowed a free standing wall. Also, mortar bonds well to the brick.
|Soap/shampoo shelf is sculptured into wall.||Four bricks are stood up to add space for the shelf.|
|Scratch coat on metal lath and bricks.||After brown coat has set up overnight,
top is formed with strips of masonite.
I like using hilti pins instead of masonry nails.
|Edges for soap shelf are formed and filled,
awaiting the finish coat.
| the floor and walls up to about 6 inches are
painted with a rubbery membrane material.
Here I put down metal lath and I am plastering the floor.
|I used a real coarse sand for the finish coat
because it drags random pits and irregularities. I hope to more of these showers in the future
