Size of niche and a million other questions
Hello. We are building, and the project manager who was creating our shower niches and bench was let go. I was not given the chance to meet with him about our project, and did not know of his dismissal.
Now the new manager wants to meet to discuss the bathroom. I haven't thought of the sizes,(the original manager had experience building his own niches, and I was leaving it up to his judgement, with my input). Oh, and they want to meet on Wednesday.
I don't know if the new manager has any experience with niches, and want to be prepared.
What should I be looking for in a niche?
Is there a good size?
What type of material do I want for the bottom of it? Should the bottom extend out?
What kind of waterproofing should I ask for?
They are creating a bench, a pony wall will house the niches (2), and then there will be glass on top of the wall.
How high off the tub deck should the wall go up to?
I didn't want a full wall, it would have been too dark and enclosed feeling. Yes, we will have a light in the shower.
They are not willing under any circumstances to put the niches in the wall with the shower head, and this was the only way the (national) builder would work with me.
Any help, words of advice, will be appreciated! I've asked about niches before, and you all were so helpful, and provided wonderful pictures! Thank you again!
