Well, Since I had to go take a few bunk pictures to send to a fellow member, I decided to shoot a few pictures of my recently completed shower project.

Special thanks to H3Jim for the kick in the butt, by showing his pictures awhile back.

It was hard to get a good angle as the entry is in the hallway.

Looking up at LED light while lit

It may not look it, but provides more than enough light while showering

You got it Jim.

I had a plastic shower curtain fastened to the walls with stainless screws on the top and a few on the bottom.

Primative, but it worked. lol  Grin

Great job cliff, I like it.  Did you decide what you wanted to do with the head board doors?  Tambour doors on a roller would be different there and not interfere with the clothes pole.  Picture a roll up garage door on it's side but the door is wood.  Just a thought.

Shhhhhhh!, I am working vary hard at the illusion that I am constantly plugging away at it.

Not the truth that I go "balls to the wall" to finish something just before a trip or a rally.......LOL   Grin  Though it is a great motivator.

The granite will be for my next "Show & Tell" or maybe the organizing cabinets I built in the middle bay for chairs, tables, utensils, coolers...etc... Its amazing how fast three sheets of cabinet grade plywood can disappear..... Undecided

I'm so glad you are nearing completion, then you can help with mine  

All I have to do is walk 50' behind my shop to work on one of YOURS!    Tongue

Ed and Christy,

Thanks for the compliments.

Christy,

Now that shower is in a 4905, not to late to run away from that MCI and redo your 4905.....

Think about it...... Shocked

Cliff, I'm not worried. You don't even know how to tell them apart.  Huh 
#11 is up here, safe & sound. I can't recall the # of the 'Steer Power' bus at the moment. Sort of like kids - after so many, the names run together & I get confused.  .  .  .

Stay the course & finish your bus, I don't need another woman mad at me because of my buses!  Shocked

Happy trails!

hahaha, actually, it's a 4107, and yes, it has a tiled shower too! Grin  Unfortunately, we don't get to claim the honors, as some tile guys we know whipped it out quickly for us, in between our trips.  BigBus will get a tiled shower too. . just a little bigger than the one in TempBus.

AND, speaking of having tile. . . Roll Eyes. . . so does our new upstairs bathroom in our house. . not just the shower. . .the whole doggone bathroom. . .walls, floor, you name it, I covered it with tile!  You just can't beat it for looks, can you?  Sure do have sore fingers though, ha ha.  Now, Larry gets to grout it for me! 

Anyway, your job looks great and will look good for the duration!  You just can't beat it.   ;)Christy Hicks. . .proud owner of too many buses Cheesy

The pictures almost do the job the justice it deserves, Cliff. Luckily I was one of the chosen few to see it first hand. Good Job guy.

I do have one reservation though. Since the shower is almost directly across from the childrens' bunks, and the fact that you neglected to frost the glass in the door, I'm wondering how you're going to schedule your showers and keep a modicum of privacy for all family members?

Hmmmmmmm?

Sincere apologies, buddy. I didn't realize that the door glass was textured until I blew up the pic for Jackie.  Looking at the Thumb it appeared like the door was closed.

I know your kidding, but good question.  I found a really nice multi bracket that hangs from the shower neck at Lowes.  It won't hardly move, but we take it down when underway.  And during pictures Grin
