in Great Cacapon, West Virginia
Here's how we did it :
Grate is taped off ,and the edge of the white drain pipe exposed. The finish coat will cover the edge of this pipe.
Fast forward to the finished shower. Finish coat covers the pipe, allowing water to run into the grate.
Scratch coat on the concrete slab has a lot of acrylic bonder in the mortar.
Wood strips are set and the walls are filled in and rodded off.
Top corners are rounded for the deco theme.
A sample of the aluminum trim that hides the groove between the shower and the house. The shower is finished with white portland cement and white sand and the main house with synthetic "Tuscan Stucco".
The floor is browned out using a level to make sure the floor is way out of level to drain.
Note how the brown coat finishes flush with the edge of the pipe. The finish coat will cover this edge.
Shower is finish coated with white portland and white sand with a lot of flex con in the mix.
The angles, or inside corners, are rodded off using a piece of correx, a plastic sheet material.
The floor is rodded off in a circle, pivoting around the drain. This provides smooth draining.
The floor is troweled smooth and the sidewalls are floated. Outdoor shower with a deco look.
