Ep.5 | Shower + Toilet
Ep.5 BLOG + PRICE BREAKDOWN – http://www.jazmorton.com/van-conversion/shower-toilet/
I started off by using string line from side to side to build the front wall, which divides the front cab from the back living area. Once I completed this I had a reference to go off to construct all the shower walls. I used a shower base and built my walls around that, allowing enough space for the internal bathroom sheets.
I used SikaFlex Pro as my adhesive to glue the wet area sheets to the timber framing, or marine ply. I also used Selleys Pro Wet Area silicone for all my edge seals. I chose 35mm x 70mm pine timber as it has a decent sized cavity for insulation + plumbing and electrical. Yes it is heavier than metal framing although I don’t think it adds too much weight given the amount I used.
I chose 65mm batten screws because they countersink into timber easily and at this length i can screw into the subfloor without going through the van metal floor. The wet area panels are 3mm “High Pressure Melamine Boards”, which are made for wet areas and showers.
They come in (1200mm x 2400mm) and (900mm x 1800mm) sheets, the larger sheet costs AUD8 and the smaller AUD9. I used 2 x large sheets and 2 x small sheets which increased the price quickly! I purchased them from Bunnings.
I used 4mm bracing ply to use as templates as I would rather make a mistake on a sheet that costs as opposed to 8.
I don’t currently have an extraction fan installed in the shower although I will allow cables for this if I ever put one in later. I will be building the door in a future episode.
See my website where I go into greater detail + provide a complete price breakdown for each episode.
