rectangular shower questions..

I am building a new house that will have an approx 7X4 walk in shower. Shower head will be on the 4 ft wall. walk in will be on the back corner of the 7 ft wall. I would like to see some picks of illustrations of:
1. the profile of the floor on a rectangular shower
2. pics of the tile on the curb at the door

A square floor would be easy (i think) , im just trying to visualize the floor .

BTW, ordered my kerdi stuff yesterday from tile-experts.com and they are on the way. I hope to do a detailed instruction of the install on my webpage.

Wherever you place the drain (ideally in the middle), measure the distance to the furthest corner. That is your basis of the height of the outside. Say it is 3', you need 3/4" rise from the drain all the way around the shower. This means that the actual slopes will be greater on the short sides, but that's normal. This allows the tile to be the same level all the way around, which looks better than having a step in the corners. In the Kerdi drain box is a DVD. Watch the videos and refer to the diagrams on the box.
