Last summer we bought a 1994 Ford Econoline conversion van camper. We had outgrown our charming but cramped and delicate vintage travel trailer, and wanted to take our rv living onto the fastlane (ie. highway) with a conversion van that could go the distance from the midwest to visit family in Florida… and we wanted to take our dog.
The second make-over took place in the upstairs guest-bedroom of another older house. The bedroom itself was quite lovely but not over-large, and it featured a large lovely window at one end of the room, in the center of one wall. On the side wall that stood at right angles to the window wall were two doors almost side by side. The door closest to the widow end of the room opened into a small closet-like room with a window on the end wall, and a sink installed under it. The second door opened into a closet.
Any non retrofit panel that you might use will need to be modified in some way unless you have access to the piping inside the wall as that’s where they are designed to hook up. Jury rigs, such as was used here, are often possible but of course there is no guarantee of that. If you don’t want to open the wall, a retrofit shower panel should be purchased if possible.
what a lovely hub! I need to revamp my bathroom and you have given me the spark. it is small and the theme is French countryside. I was going to paint the walls taupe, but I used this color in the kitchen and I’m not so sure I want it in the bath. the shower curtain is white and there are floral framed pictures on the walls. now I can’t wait to give it the finishing spa touches.. thanks for sharing! I’ll take any ideas you have!
A one-piece shower pan is the key to a leakproof shower. We opted for an easily installed fiberglass shower pan. Forty-eight inch wide pans are common and will work well; 60-in. units like we used must be special-ordered. The shower pan has to fit into the space left by the removed bathtub. Most bathtubs are 60 in. long, perfect for a 60-in. shower base.
