Cat here! Has anyone considered centering your shower so that it has no walls? Much easier to keep clean. just slope the bath floor to the center drain and let the rain fall! Water pipes could be supported by a ceramic water diety Or Japanise'e wood with a boat finish?? If one must have walls, sheets of glass say in an octoganal shape that can be sqweegeed down after? Silicon joints as with a fish tank. Supports above could be commen copper pipe the soft stuff coxed into a fillagree. A nicely placed privete garden window and instant exotic. Unless you are a feng Shui purist, the copper pipes might be allowed to inhance the overall look of the bath by being seen and a scavanged chunk of granite (ask around at the local head stone places, sometimes they cut a stone wrong or the client dosen't pay and they have them in the bone pile for allot less) First floor ground level best because of weight. Then a nice big hand thrown bowl with a hole for the drain on top and wa-la sink, counter shower ledge for bath stuff all in the center. Not to mention a dramatic view from the door. for the good of all C. ______________________________________________________________ From: "Bill&Julie" <wkbjkb3 at mn.rr.com> To: "Cob List" <coblist at deatech.com> Subject: Re: [Cob] tiles, showers, wetness Date: Wed, 16 Nov 2005 15:12:33 -0600 >Hello,, >There are many want to tackle the wet thingy with cob. >As we know COB does not like wet. >The first thing that pops into mind is a one piece >shower of plastic... >As far as tiles go,,, how much ongoing labor do you want? >Tiles do not bend, other things do.
