It's been a while since my last post but I have been doing some work at the cabin, primarily in the bathroom. The plan has always been to install a neo-angle shower in the back corner of the bathroom but after researching options, I discovered that good quality corner showers are very expensive (i.e. $1400+). I opted to go with a less expensive option, installing a 30x60 shower pan and tiling the shower walls. The pan was about $200 and the tile another $150. Eventually I'll install a shower door but a curtain will work for now.

Unfortunately, since I had planned on a corner shower, the width of the bathroom was about 1.5" wider than the dimensions of the tub-sized shower so I had to build out one wall a bit. After cutting a drain hole and installing the pan, I installed five coats of Redguard waterproofing compound on the walls and a layer of mortar and backerboard on the floor.

I went ahead and painted the bathroom walls and installed the light fixture so there would be light in the room. My parents were visiting the week we put up the tile so my dad helped considerably but tiling the vertical shower walls was still a challenge. We did a fair job and I'm glad it's done. The floor was much easier.

This week I installed an 18" vanity in the bathroom and started on the plumbing in the utility room. I'm going to use a six gallon electric water heater as long as the cabin is for occasional use. It should heat a tank of water in about 30 minutes using the generator.
