Build a Tile Shower

Updated:2014-05-13 10:20:28
Building a new tile shower can be a hard job if you let it. This step by step article will give you a some simple to use materials ideas and the technic needed build a travertine tile shower.

Instructions as follows:


Firstly, in our example we will build a stand up tile shower with a store bought glass door and 1 glass wall that is 3x3 any wall touching the ceiling in the bathroom would already be in place, this would be your typical bathroom corner shower project. Like with any building project planning can go a long way, actually estimating your building materials before you get started can save you a lot of time from running back to your local lumber store to get your job started and or finished. If needed a cheap simple solution is to have your material list made online, there is a lot of Freelance Construction Estimators online that could make a complete material list for you right from there desktops
Secondly, getting started we want to measure from the center of our drain(if its center) getting the inside measurement of the shower room we are building, next we will run a 3" double 2x4 lip for everywhere there isnt a wall.
Thirdly, put some tape over your plumbing hole/drain and run the travertine tile adhesive a little thick with the notched side of the trowel, find yourself a straight 2x4 cut it 8" smaller then the size of our shower, smooth out the center leaving a 4" lip of thicker tile adhesive along the walls. 4

Fourthly, time to Tile, If your want a mortar line on your floor you would use the spacers to give you the width that you would like,(standard is 1/4) for a first timer, a mortar line can be your best friend.
