We started our shower surround project a while back but Jeff decided he wanted to redo it. He's a perfectionist which translates into, "Let's do this as many times as we can."
Actually, he decided to add flashing in the corners to help protect the pine from the water. We wouldn't want water to get behind the metal and start growing mold. No, no, no. So, we took down what we had up and started over.
First we cut strips of this white pvc wood trim to fit around the perimeter of the tub. We cut it to also fit the depth of z channel.
This is the z channel. It will sit on top of the plastic wood trim and work as a water barrier.
Now for the flashing. We didn't use actual flashing, but roof ridge left over from our roof. Jeff just bent it into a 90° with his big ol' man hands and cut off that rippled piece on the edges with tin snips.
Then he screwed them up to the wall with stainless steel screws.
Now, as we speak, he's screwing up panels of galvanized corrugated metal. It looks like it's going to get finished sometime today so now I need a pretty shower curtain and a light fixture and we need finish the front of the tub (it's still completely open) and then we need to etc etc...it just never ends, does it?
I'll show you the finished results in sometime in the next couple of days.
