Default Re: Cast iron tub

We got rid of an old cast iron tub too. Not a pretty clawfoot one, just an old ugly one. I put a shower in it's place too. This was my first experience building a shower pan with rubber liner etc. I lost a lot of sleep worrying about this but it turned out great. We then put a bathtub in our bedroom. People thought we were nuts. We have a fireplace in our bedroom so we can take a bath and watch the fire. I have to admit we hardly ever do that though because we have a hot tub on our patio and we use that to soak in instead. Hmmmm, maybe we are nuts having a tub in our bedroom and a tub in our outdoor kitchen. Karen

Thumbs up Re: Cast iron tub

Ahhh Karen,
you bought back some of of those old wonderful experiences in our early marriage days of sharing a romantic bath with my wife. (Just celebrated our 34th anniversary last saturday).
There is nothing like sharing a bath (or a shower for that matter) with a close friend.
No wonder she refuses to skinny dip in our pool in those very still, very hot nights that we get occassionally.

I tore out an old cultured marble Jacuzzi tub the same way and replaced it with a 20 square foot tile shower two years ago. Very satisfying job. The book SETTING TILE by Michael Byrne is an outstanding reference for shower construction. Also there is a tilesetter out of Houston named John Bridge who maintains a great website that has a photo file of some unbelievable DIY projects. Click the Tile and Marble box on his main website.

I wonder what that would sound like. Not exactly an instrument you could carry to play in the orchestra.

callan88, I got some of my information for the building the shower pan from the John Bridge website. He has a big fan club. Many people quote him.
