Total Transformation (in the words of Matthew)

                                     plastic drop-in tubUpon arrival at this job, the first thing I noticed was a big drop-in tub in the bathroom corner in a frame.  I have to be careful with removal to protect the new walk-in tub footprint so as not to have any visible damage outside the area.

Next thing I notice is the mirrors.  A walk-in bathtub always sit higher than a standard tub, luckily these obstacles can be removed. The mirrors were carefully pried off and stored for safe keeping.

I use FRP on the walls which I find to be very durable and clean looking.  Finishing it off with lattice PVC trims. Luckily the linoleum went under the tub as it usually does in manufactured homes. Because this install was missing the third wall behind the faucets, I had to fabricate an end panel of out FRP and trims, which finishes off the tub nicely. The 94 y.o. customer was extremely happy that he could now bath safely, independently, and was happy with the installation.
