Love the thread. Visually, I think a niche really makes or breaks a shower. Hardest one I've done. Kind of one of those picture in a picture deals. You dont really see the outline of a house unless you stand back and look at it for a minute.

Probably one of my all time favorites. No idea who did it, but I've had it in the "idea" file for a while.

I think you should be proud of your work . Also , your niches images should be inclueded in this great thread , instead of the link.

We can all thank the clients which want to create , have and invest these jobs.
