We were recommended to Claire by one of our carpenters who had done handyman work for her. Claire had recently bought an early 20th century bungalow from house flippers. She needed the new bathtub replaced with a low threshold shower before the two, foot surgeries that she had scheduled. We collaborated on a design that blends modern aesthetics with the bungalow’s original woodwork and finishes. Claire’s shower pan is adaptable. If she were ever to need a roll-in shower, we can take off the door, hang a weighted shower curtain, and remove the threshold; beneath it the front edge is beveled and there is a collapsible rubber water dam.
