Making our AMAZING Bathroom!

We’ve decided to make our bathroom luxurious. We’re building it out of ferro-cement, which allows us to sculpt the walls and hand-lay the bath tub with the durability of cement.

Here are some photos that tell the story:

Here’s a close-up of the bath tub framing:

The bath room is outdoors with no ceiling so that you can look at the trees, birds, moon, stars, etc.  It’s a rough oval shape with an outer wall that forms it into something like a spiral.  Here we have temporarily laid fabric over the walls while we work on framing the bath tub. This lets you see the wall shape more clearly like a spiral:

After covering all the framing with chicken wire fence, we finally start the concrete of the bath tub:

And then we start concreting the walls:

Finally the walls are no longer see-through:

The inner walls are curved in multiple places, and we built-in a bench seat, shelves, and cathedral arch style windows:

Finally when all the details are finished, we can start adding the finish plasters:
