Help with Zero entry, curbless Shower
We will make our shower in the master bath, a Zero entry with no curb to step over. The shower will be tile.
The contractor says he will lower the floor (via the floor joists) to be about 3in lower than the bathroom floor then build the shower floor up with mud?. He says the initial entry to the shower will be flat and then slope downward to a central drain in the floor. Says we should not have any problems with water coming back into masterbath.
He is not planning a linear drain under the glass door.
We have read that a linear drain may be a good idea? The linear drain would be placed under the shower door where the entry to the shower begins.
Does anyone have experience with building a zero entry shower? Any recommendations for best drains or placement of drains? Does what the contractor plans sound correct?
In the plan, we will have a half-wall next to the vanity with shower glass on top half of the wall. The shower door and entry wall will be glass. There will be a seat in the shower. The shower will be tiled.
