Tell the the folks at ColorRite the brand name and color of your grout and they'll make you 100 percent silicone in regular, satin, or sanded finish to match.

Thanks CX. Also, many thanks to everyone that helped along the way. I appreciate all the feedback and advice. Still need to caulk near the ceiling but I'll do that later. I'm calling this done (ish). May or may not add a door or glass partition.

I really like how the baseboard came out with the tile cut into 2' x 3.75" pieces when Schluter on top to match the Schluter at the end of the walls.

This was a bit of a pain. Need a mirror though. Also, wiring a 3 gang with 12 gauge and a gfci isn't loads of fun either.

Nice and tidy, Ali, well done.

Baseboard tile did turn out nice with the metal trim. Clean. Shower design and tile color are great. I'd have mentally struggled with giving up the square footage in order to execute the bench/niche/upper wall but it looks just fantastic - it isn't "just another niche in the wall" (see what I did there? ). If I had the space and general lay out to do it I'd have pilfered that idea from ya.

Yeah, box mounted GFCI's are a PITA in general, more so with 12G. I forget - you have enough water heater for all those shower heads?

I love the looks of this. Great job! Might want to shower a bit to see if you require glass or not.

I have a doorless shower and the only time I wished I'd installed one is on those cold winter nights when it's down to 10 degrees or so. That doesn't happen here often so I'm happy without one most of the time. Doesn't help that it's against the north wall of my house.

Nice looking shower.

Thanks. Will definitely be keeping it door-less for a bit. Will I have enough hot water? For me? Absolutely not. Our upstairs bath, with 2 shower heads will last about 45 mins so I figure this will be at most half that on a 75g boiler. I get more pressure in the basement and I think more flow but have never been a fluid dynamics expert so I could be wrong on the more flow thing. My guess is 20 minutes. Worst case I can always add a tankless as the bath is right next to the hvac/boiler/electric panel room.

Passed plumbing and electrical today for the whole basement ... mechanical and building to go.
