Bathroom Finished

I really like to read up on what everybody else is doing, so my turn… I’m almost finished my bathroom remodel. Here are my pictures. The bathroom is the same size as original. Without all the stuff. I used F.R.P. for the walls and 8” tile for the floor. The ceiling is the original plastic top. ( Painted) There’s a drain in the floor opposite the toilet. The window is frosted. I install a grey water tank under the shower. All I have left is the lighting. Just through I’d share. 

Nice work. I am working on my bathroom as well. We decided to use FRP to replace the old aluminum panels too. How are you digging it so far?

Cutting those curved tiles took some real skill. Very nicely done.

F.r.p.

The F.R.P. panels are great. I made sure that there was ample if caulking under the panels before I installed them. I put them over the aluminum just for added water barrier. I used the FRP in over the wall panels that were to beat up, they look awesome. Next project is to make bunk beds. I'm thinking electrical tubing, tubing bender and rope to make kinda like a hammock. Any input would be great.

Oh wow! So you actually attached them overtop the original aluminum panels? Interesting... That had not crossed my mind. I planned on just putting them in place of the originals that are beat up...

Ya kinda like a bathroom remodel. The F.R.P. needs a hard stable base like sheet rock or aluminum. It should last you decades. Use a glue/caulk made for tub surrounds. I've been a bathroom contractor for 20 years, it works well in all areas.

Electrical tubing is not strong enough for a bunk bed, get some tubing with a thicker wall to support the weight.

Hi, I had a box van once and the box was made out of FRP; I was told that it was Fiberglass Re-inforced Plywood.

Is the shower vent (?) under the bench? I understood the shower and toilet had to be elevated for P trap and backflow prevention. I only know enough to be dangerous, but I have my bath torn out now and would prefer not having steps up to shower and toilet. I'm planning a wet bath on an 82 Excella, 31' center bath.
