Looked but didn't find a DIY home improvement thread. If there is one Harv feel free to merge.
Anyway, getting my plan together for a bathroom remodel. I know there are several peeps on here who are quite handy so thought I'd look for advise regarding a new shower. I'm leaning towards building my own out of corrugated metal. I have a rustic/camp theme going on in my house so it will fit right in and the $$$$ is reasonable. To keep it simple I'll be purchasing a pan vs. making my own. Has anyone built one of these? If so what would you do differently. I'm open to any ideas....
I'm thinking of something like this. Again, not over a tub but rather a pan.
Check out schluter systems. They make complete waterproof shower systems including shower bases that you can tile over. Some are even curbless when used with their linear drains. http://https://www.schluter.com/schluter-us/en_US/ That corrugated might look halfway decent with a grouted river rock on the shower base.
Almost done with one bathroom, then on to another. I'm using a Mustee shower base on the next one. ($150 or so) Then cement board for tile on the walls.
For your corrugated application, don't hesitate to add or move studs where you need them at panel joints. I'd use screws with rubber washers under the head or sealant in the screw hole with sealant over the screw heads. Maybe change the shower control valve while your in there? Can you solder?
I flip flop back and forth as to whether or not I want to involve tile. I only have 1 bathroom and tile would add 2 more days that I wouldn't have a shower. That's not a deal breaker tho as my parents only live a couple miles from me. More of a PITA thing.
