One of the major problems we, and I’m sure a lot of you, encounter in home renovation is where to find materials for projects. Or what to do about a project that you don’t exactly know how to do yourself. This is happening now is our forever-long basement bathroom renovation. Seriously the longest reno is home improvement history.
I left a job, had a baby, am working on my Ph.D. and all that jazz. Renovations and even simple decorating projects don’t get the attention they need.
Part of the reason it’s taking years for us to makeover a small bath is because we didn’t know what to do about the shower part of the space. The toilet, floor, plank wall, lighting, and vanity were no problem. We even put up drywall ourselves.
There was a cheap and dirty shower stall there when we moved in. It was the first thing that came out once we decided to gut the room. After we framed out the room, the shower area has come out to be a non-standard size. After months of thinking about how we possibly could have a shower base in there and how we could afford one, since custom sizes are a LOT of money, we decided to simply put in a small bench in the remainder of the space where a standard shower pan will fit.
