I’ll tell you about the construction of a piece of the bathroom, and specifically about the shower in it.
The house is wooden, so there is a certain specificity in the arrangement of the bathroom: it must be borne in mind that the walls of the wooden house are unstable. My ceiling is 0.5% higher in summer than in winter. It seems to be garbage, but it’s 1.5 cm. If I rigidly fix material on this wall that does not stretch, then cracks are inevitable.
Also, I absolutely do not like plastic showers. Plastic inevitably turns yellow, ages and becomes brittle.
Due to their complex shapes, these cabins are very difficult to wash off from lime. Any hoses on the clamps on the reverse side do not inspire confidence at all, especially since they are not particularly serviced. Therefore, only a construction shower.
The first is the vapor barrier: I bought the thickest polyethylene, 200 microns and, without cutting the sleeves, tightened all the walls with gluing the joints with bituminous sealant.
Polyethylene – it is possible here, ultraviolet radiation – will not be, it will not collapse. The frame is made of plasterboard profiles. Only the lower end is rigidly fixed, all other fastenings are sliding, ceiling profiles are attached only to the racks of the frame. Here you can see the mortgage from a square steel pipe, then it will hold a glass door. It is also attached to a wooden wall on a sliding mount. Water distribution – with a copper pipe behind the frame and the thermostat
Ventilation, pipe – 150 mm, all seams are glued, goes to the roof and serves only this bathroom. The walls are sewn up with an aqua panel, the seams between the panels were sealed with a polyurethane sealant, the insulation is like noise insulation. The ceiling, ventilation outlet, is also glued. Ceiling, lamps also pasted. On the floor – screed, wait until the waterproofing is dry. All corners are glued with tape.
And after – waterproofing, a layer of 4 mm.
The remaining walls of the bathroom are already sewn in the photo. GCR, in two layers. So laid under the tile! Then it’s simple – tiles on the walls, tiles on the floor.
And the last line of defense against moisture – epoxy grout.
Dear infection, it turned out more expensive than tiles.
And, if the floor still somehow turned out like in the picture, a grater, then I rubbed myself against the walls ad libitum until I took the beads from the child, ripped a ball out of them to form a seam.
There was no other way.
On the ceiling, I already decided that I would have a Provence style, painted with waterproof paint, directly on the waterproofing. Now to all curious people – I say so, and they nod with an understanding look.
As you can see in the photo above, the thermostat sticks out of the wall, this is the canoe in the photo (with a dull hanging pipe). He could not drown, the wall is external.
It was necessary to somehow draw up. I bought a sheet of acrylic stone and began to make a podium.
