I took my first shower in the new bathroom tonight. There are still some little details we have to work out (like a shower screen!), but on the whole, it's pretty close to being done. Finally, the end is in sight on some part of this crazy project!
The walls and pan of the shower are concrete. At one point, we talked about leaving it concrete, but now that the tile is in, we can't imagine not having tile. It's a warm brown with just a slight grain to it that adds some much needed depth to the room.
