We removed approximately 6” of existing faux marble above the tub, along with the spa corner tub. Built a deck approximately 6” high from the original floor with a tread depth of approximately 7”. The step rise, tread, and new threshold face were tiled with floor tile.
The original drain was in a post-tension concrete deck and no modifications could be made to this type of deck. The custom deck was required to accommodate this situation. Additionally, the drain was moved to accommodate a center drain location. Floors were inspected for floor penetrations after exposing the framing, and where necessary, were sealed according to code.
The frame was removed in preparation for the window trim kit. A custom acrylic shower system was installed over the new shower area walls and a one-piece acrylic, slip-resistant floor installed on a waterproof core floor base.
