Curbless Shower with 3" drop

Recommended Posts

I've searched through the forum for ideas on how to create a bathroom shower that is curbless(?) with about a 3" drop from the main bathroom floor but not finding enough to figure this out.

Can you point me to a tutorial that offers a similar solution perhaps?

 

This was one suggestion to another user's closely-related topic, in an old post, but with no explanation: "Have you tried just lowering the floor of the shower space?"

I've tried to determine how to do that, but since I don't have a full grasp of how foundations are constructed in HD Pro and since some of the Structure settings in the room dialog are grayed out, I don't know how to simply lower the portion dedicated to the shower.

Suggestions?

 

(I tried three times to remove/replace the inserted images, but the post editor acts like it cannot forget the images when I tried to replace them.)

Thank you,

Delain

The shower needs to be a room. Enter -3" in the Floor field.

 

You may need to delete your foundation first, then rebuild with the change.

That's part of what is preventing me experimenting on my own with the exact suggestion you make with -3".

How can I input -3" in the Floor field when it is grayed out? In the screenshot I sent, it is disabled due to the current settings.
What needs to change so that field becomes available?

 

Thank you,

Delain

So, David, is that what you did; made the shower a "room" and modified the Structure settings so its Floor height would be a short distance lower than the main bathroom floor?

Thanks in advance,

Yes, of course.

If you have made the shower enclosure into a 'room', then open the shower 'room' dialog box, and set the stem wall top (C) to -3".   Sheesh!
