Finished Bathrooms (Children's Bath) - Thank You JBF

In this bath I installed a vanity w/Corian top, a tile floor, a new tub and a tiled tub suround. The suround is installed with 4 mil plastic for a vapor barrier covered with 1/2 in Hardi, then tiles were thin set. I followed the recommended method on the JBF for the Hardie, tile, tub deck interface by bringing the hardie out a bit to come over the built-in tub lip to about 1/2 in above the tub deck. Then I installed the tile down to 1/8 in off the tub deck and caulked. This was my first attempt at a niche. I learned that you really need to make sure the niche is squared up well if you expect to have just the bullnose edges show. I now understand why it is recommended to purchase a pre-made form for niches. I just couldn't get the inside bullnose pieces to line up correctly so I ended up picture framing the niche. BTW I used Redguard to coat the niche and face around the niche. Looks good but it would have looked better with just the bullnose edge showing.
Anyway we are happy with the results.

Looks quite good, Gary. Very professional.

Gary, that bath came out great. And you should be very pleased with how well the niche looks too.
