Turning a Bathtub into a Shower

One of the bathrooms in this house had only a bathtub with a half wall for the bathtub plumbing. The home owner wanted a more useful space, so she asked us to install glass blocks to create a full wall for a shower surround. The glass blocks give more light to the shower area, as well as compliment the look in the rest of the bathroom.

Since we couldn’t put the plumbing into the glass blocks, we used copper piping to plumb the shower head. We looked for something store bought that would work for this application but could not find anything, even at the specialty plumbing stores. So we got creative and made it ourselves. The best part is that the copper is going to be chromed to match the fixtures and that the place to do it is none other than the Harley Davidson dealership!

With not too much work, new tile, and a glass wall, the result is a much more functional space that is really aesthetically pleasing. Something to think about for your next project!
