Shower stalls
« on: June 25, 2006, 08:54:44 PM »
Question - Do you guys have any leads on buying a shower stall that would fit in a standard MCI 102A3 along the out side wall?  What options are available?

Thanks as always,
Danny

Danny short of making your own from individual pieces, I don't think you'll find a store bought shower that will fit against the outside wall without some modifications of some sort. I had to space mine out about 3 inches before it was sqaure but all I did was boxed in the side where it was spaced out! Yopu can't even tell it's out and not against the wall!

My bath is enclosed and is 48" wide.  My shower stall is 36x36 using a Kohler shower pan.  I made my own enclosure and used kemlite bonded to the plywood walls.  Sealed with white silicone, has worked for me for over 10 years.  The shower stall is out from the wall almost 12 inches so it is almost square.  With this method, it wouldn't be much work to modify a shower stall just to meet the ceiling if you want.  In the 12" space between the outside wall and the shower stall, I installed shelves that can be accessed from both the bedroom and the bathroom-hence my linen closet!  Good Luck, TomC

Danny,

I have a 32X32 Kohler shower base against the outside wall.

The entry is from the hall.

I don't mind the slight curve of the wall on the outside, but that ONLY works because my entry is from the hall.

If your layout is with a neo-angle or curved you will need the straight walls

Go to HD or Lowes and actually stand in there displays, you will get a feel for what you can live with.
