Project Description

Ideal Shower for Ageing In Place in Papineau Lake Cottage. 

Ideal Shower for Ageing In Place. This elegant Curb-Less Walk-In Shower  is spacious and luxurious. It is also very comfortable because the whole house including the shower floor is equipped with hydronic heating. The large format wall tiles and thin grout lines make it easy to maintain and the absence of a curb makes the entrance into the shower easy.  We recessed the 4″ stainless steel Schluter drain into the subfloor which allowed for a slope of .25″ per foot for the entire schower base. The Bathroom floor and the shower base are tiled with granite mosaic which remains grippy even when wet. The shower base was constructed with dry-pack mortar and water-proofed with Schuter Kerdi Cloth. For the shower walls we used lightweight 1/2 “ Kerdi board. Home owners who plan to stay in their home as they age should seriously consider shower designs of this nature.
