Casey’s Bathroom

After breaking our backs trying to get our daughter in and out of the tub we decided to modify the master bath (the only 1st floor bathroom) to be more accessible. We pulled out the tub and shower that were next to each other. We also pulled out the double sinks with cabinets underneath. We thought about leaving the standard window, but did decided to pull it out as well. We replaced the window with glass blocks and no ledge to accumulate water build up. We then had to re-dig the drain in order to have a single large drain in the center of what used to be the tub and separate shower bay. New tile was laid at a grade to run the water to the new drain. We left the middle section completely open to roll in our daughter’s bath chair. On one side we put in an overhead shower and a wall that is half tile and the top half is glass. On the other side we did a shorter control with a easily adjusted hand shower. This side has a half tile wall, but there is not glass on the top. Instead the counter it continued out to the parallel wall. Next to the parallel wall we have a single sink. We selected not to do any cabinets below to leave the sink and counter/vanity are wheel chair accessible.
