This bathroom was built around a solid slab of “rain forest” granite. And also proves that a handicap bath doesn’t have to look like a handicap bath. The granite weighed several thousand pounds and was installed on the back wall of the shower before we built the rest of the shower walls.
North Bethlehem Bath
In a rural area of North Bethlehem, we created a 300-square foot, bathroom suite with double under-mount sinks, a shower room, dressing, and laundry areas. Over a thousand square feet of natural cut slate line the floor and walls in different sizes and patterns.
This huge master bath has a separate toilet room, closet, and direct access to the patio and pool. The tub was cut into a single slab of granite, and the same material flows from the windowsills, over the knee-wall, and onto the dual sinks. In order to make this happen, we had to plan this during the framing stages of the project. The hand chiseled edge took a full day to cut.
In this addition in Zionsville, we used Universal Design in the master bath to ensue it will meet the needs of anyone who uses it. It is completely handicap accessible, without the look of a handicap bath. The shower has no threshold, the tub is hydro-massage, and the vanity cabinet can be removed for a future wheelchair.
No matter how small the room, we can make it clean, new, and functional.
