The House That Jack Built – Tub Surround

Fitting and installing the tub wall surround system

There are a gazillion bathtub and surround tub options. We kept it simple selecting a deep soaking tub for myself, and a durable surround tub system for the other people who like to shower.

The tub surround system came in five panels; one for each end and three for the back.  All four large panels had to be cut and trimmed to fit the contour of the wall and tub edge.

The panels were cut with our circular saw refitted with a masonry blade. A bastard file was used to fine tune the fit, and a power drill with a hole saw attachment was used to cut out the faucet and spout opening,  Lastly the panels were secured in place with the manufacturers recommended adhesive.

Down in my basement, lined neatly on a shelf are handwritten notebooks chronicling my life. After years of writing, the experience became more of a burden then an important part of my day so I quit writing. Five years later I took up writing again. This time it was in the form of a blog which gave me a place to hang out after I lost my job. From there my blog content morphed into writing about my general contractor experience building our house. As my life experiences grew so did my blog.
