Custom curbless shower remodel in Fairbanks, Alaska
This bathroom was not part of the original design of this house and was a closet before becoming a master bath.
The original remodel was a disaster from the get go. Look at how small the shower cavity is. The high point in the shower was 5’6″ inches. The homeowners wanted to install a simple walk-in shower stall but as you can see from the space, that would have left some wasted and awkward space.
Here we removed the tub and previous wet wall.
We went the opposite direction to include the angled wall as the back wall for the shower surround.

Let’s revisit before
This shower has a zero profile transition from floor into the shower.
Previously curbless showers were thought of as an ADA use only but now in Fairbanks we are moving towards “Universal Design”. The concept being that you plan for the future today. New homes should have some design incorporated that allows for any disabled, short or long term, person to use the facilities. Plan design in advance allows for control over the way it looks and saves 10’s of 1000’s of dollars down the road on remodels.
