with the original plastic bath.
"original plan" was to remove the plastic fixtures/surrounds to have them refinished while I was replacing the copper lines with PEX.
The Pex is in progress and the original fixtures are out and taking over my garage
. The more I think about the costs to refinish the fixtures/surrounds that Im am NOT IN LOVE WITH.... The less I want to drop the $$ on the refinishing and OVER the thought of doing it myself..The old plastic stuff not only crowds the bath it impeds my creative process. The plastics will not fit with my new design or decor and Im not SO sad about it
in the least.
My "new plan"
is to replace the sink/surround with a lightweight custom vainty and drop in sink across the back window.
and fun to do.
However, the tub/shower/sink combo is a MAJOR THORN in the creative process
My thoughts are:
Custom framed (my preference) shower/seat combo
Prefab shower/seat combo.
The major with the custom is lightweight/leakfree/low maintenance materials. What to use to framing and what material for skinning the walls? Could use a prefab pan.
Prefab has its own major issues. The radius of the ceiling is one.
Both have the potential of blocking the rear window. Could possibly work around this issue with custom. I do like Stainless Steel but too $$ and a bit cold.
Heres where yall (TX gal) come in (enter stage left)...
Ideas? Suggestions? Working Knowledge?
Thank you all
