You may not care about my personal life, but let me tell you it’s been buuusy! I left my prior employment and got myself a modest raise as well as two other part time jobs, I’ve been working for my money! I took a short break between employment and returned with no intention to continue the shower project. For the sake of documentation here’s what I did, but I’ll warn you it’s not done yet.
The Shower Project Beginnings
This project has taught me that I really don’t know what I’m doing, it’s best to go into this project with a plan, especially with something like a shower. Below you’ll see what may happen if your plan is not well thought out.
That FRP looked great while it was up.\
But I changed my mind and tore it off.
This piece sucked to put up! and then I changed my mind and tore it off as well.
I made a frame for my shower base.
My original plan was to put up a cement base for the shower to rest on.
I threw a bunch of weight over it to adhere the pan to the cement base.
Then two days later I tested the integrity of it.
It failed, After looking at all these little chunks of cement, thinking about them bouncing with the vibrations of the bus, I decided that I did not want to risk destroying the shower pan from beneath it.
So I got rid of it all. (notice the bucket on the right)
I re-adhered the shower pan to the ground and used various scrap insulation boarding below it to provide a little bit of additional support. I feel much more comfortable with the end result. Not that I’ve reached the end of this project yet. But here we are.
To be continued much later. I don’t know when heh..
Here I am the day after I left my old employment, battling one of the worst hangovers I’ve had since Chinese new year 2016.
